Welcome to the 2018-2019 school year! We are pleased to have you as partners and want to assure you that we will do our best to help your child experience academic, social, and emotional growth. With your help, this will be an excellent school year. As the year progresses, and as you become either more informed or more puzzled, we encourage you to call the school and talk with those who might be of help. If your questions deal with in-class events, please ask to speak with the teacher. If it deals with the overall program, curriculum, or activities, please feel free to contact me directly. One of our goals is to see that parents and guardians of students, like the students themselves, feel at home at Grant Watts. To accomplish this, we will communicate weekly through “The Howler” email and monthly through our newsletter called the Totem Times, which will provide information about school events and activities. We welcome and encourage your participation. It is my pleasure to be the principal of a school with terrific students, involved families, and a dedicated staff. The 2018-2019 year will prove to be an exciting one.
