Message From The Principal

Our summer school session has come to a close and we would like to thank all of our teachers/staff from Grange Hall & Winterpock who helped our students to grow this summer! We are excited to host the Camp Invention crew next week for a fun-filled learning adventure.


We would like to extend a warm welcome to our new assistant principal, Mr. Shawn Ondrish. Mr. Ondrish recently served as the assistant principal at Watkins Elementary. If you get a chance while visiting during the book fair or camp invention, swing by to say hi and meet our new AP.


We also wanted to let parents know that although your child's schedule will be visible in ParentVue in mid August - there may still be changes and classroom assignments will not be official until you receive a phone call on Tuesday, August 27.


Enjoy the rest of your summer break!


With Kindness,

Mrs. Jones

Lead Learner

Denim Drive 2019

We need your denim! 2019 Denim Drive has started!


Bring your gently used denim (any style, any size/pants/skirts/shirts/shorts/jackets) to GHES and place in the blue bin outside the school by the office.


The Chesterfield County school that collects the most pieces/items will win $1,000 for their school's PTA. All items will then go to Goodwill.


Together, we can put Grange Hall in first place!
