What's Happening at Griffis

Griffis Goes Hollywood

December Principal Update


Oh how we love this time of year at Griffis. We love the excitement in the eyes of the children each and every day. We love hearing the laughter, the singing and the wonderful stories. It truly is the most wonderful time of year. As we close out the year, we would like to thank our students, parents and community for their support during this 2021/2022 school year. We are looking forward to next semester and all the milestones our students will achieve!
