Welcome to a New Week!

Hi GIS Community,

It's hard to believe that this is my last newsletter to you for 2022! It's been a great first half of the year. I can't tell you how much I've learned, how impressed and blown away I am by our teachers and staff, how many families I've gotten to know, and most importantly, how much your kiddos mean to me. The hugs, high-fives, lunch bunches, invites into classrooms, talking through hard things, and hearing Mrs. H in the hallway makes me smile ear-to-ear.

I love being a part of this community and feel grateful that I've been given this chance. Here's to an even brighter 2023!

This week is full of fun! We have our Golden Paw Award Ceremony, a school-wide celebration, and our first ski and-ride trip. I'm pretty excited we got a good covering of snow! It's going to be a super week!

I wish you a happy and healthy holiday season and a fantastic start to the New Year. We will see you all on January 3rd, 2023! (after this week, of course!)

Mrs. H

Our Grand Isle School Store

The PTA has worked with a vendor to provide us with a school store so that families can order Grand Isle School gear!

Lost and Found

We have a large collection of sweatshirts, pants, shirts, jackets, water bottles, and some lunch boxes. If you're coming into school for pickup or drop-off, please swing by and see if anything belongs to your kiddo!
