What a wonderful start to our school year! Our building was filled with learning and smiles. Thank you for helping to make arrival and dismissal run smoothly. Please remember to create plans in pick-up patrol for your child's typical transportation and edit those plan changes throughout the year.
If you have not gotten the powerschool paperwork completed to update information please do so ASAP. It is vital that we have the most current contact and health information for your student.
Mark your calendars for our Open House on September 20th from 5:30-6:30.
UPCOMING EVENTS AND DATES

September 20th - Open House
It has been a wonderful start to the school year in first grade! The first graders were excited to be back together after a summer away from school. This week we learned about expectations for walking in the hallway, playing on the playground and lining up to leave the classroom. We enjoyed several read alouds about going back to school, including a silly story called, Dog Days of School. Ask your first grader what happens to the main character when he wishes he didn't have to go to school anymore. I am looking forward to an exciting week of learning with these first graders.
What a great start to 3rd grade! We have spent the last few days beginning to develop our classroom community and getting to know each other! Today we started thinking about our hopes and goals for this year and next week will work together to establish some classroom expectations that will help us achieve our goals!
Have a restful long weekend!
Hello GES Families,
I am very lucky to share this new and exciting school year with you!
My name is Kathie Morrocco and I am ConVal’s Title I Project Manager and reading specialist for the elementary schools. This year, I am lucky enough to join the staff at Greenfield Elementary to support our students in learning the skills of reading. It is such a joy to work with children to empower them and provide the essentials they need to become a successful reader!
To share a little bit of my background with you, I have earned both a Bachelor’s and Master’s degree in Education as well as my Post-Baccalaureate Certification as a reading and writing specialist. My role as a Title I manager allows me to work with teachers and administrators across our district to ensure all schools that receive Title I federal funding thrive from its resources. And on a personal note, I feel like I am back home again. I started my teaching journey as a kindergarten teacher here at GES, and returning this year absolutely warms my heart!
Please know we are here to partner with you, our families, to provide your child with the needed support including a multitude of resources and information for you to help your child at home. Our hope is to continue to grow and deepen our home-school partnership together, which of course is our most precious resource. Thank you for your support of all of our GES students!
Take good care,
