Principal's Message

Thank you for a Great Year at Grewenow!

Greetings, one final time this school year, Grewenow Families! Thank you so much for a fantastic school year. We were able to celebrate so many accomplishments by our students individually and our school collectively this year. I am beyond excited for the what lies ahead this fall!


I encourage students and their families to get to the public libraries, find some great summer reading, and also to get outside to enjoy the warm (maybe hot and humid) summer air. Kenosha is full of great parks, including Washington and Anderson with swimming pools, and of course, the Michigan lakefront. It's easy to lose appreciate for living by one of the Great Lakes because its part of our every day, yet it is such a privilege to be able to walk along it, fish from it, and swim in it.


Take advantage of these opportunities for fun and relaxation, seek the greatness our Kenosha has to offer, and take care Grewenow!

Academic Learning Updates

Summer School Starts Wednesday!

Summer school starts Wednesday, June 20 and runs through July 24. There will be no classes on July 4. Remember, Grewewno students attend summer school at Southport Elementary. Classes run from 8:00AM - 12:00PM each day.

Battle of the Books

The Grewenow Kenosha Battle of the Books team is looking for volunteers to coach the team of 4th and 5th grade students next year. The previous coaches are able to provide guidance but are unable to coach. The team consists of 10 members. Teams can play any six members during a battle. Unfortunately, if there are no volunteer coaches, there will be no Grewenow Kenosha Battle of the Books team in the 2018-2019 school year.

Traditionally practices take place during recess and/or after school, but that would be up to the coach's discretion. Practices can begin immediately and end at the last battle in March or April.

If you are able to coach or have questions please contact Mrs. Schilz, pschilz@kusd.edu, 262-359-6362, or bobkenosha@gmail.com.

Thank you,

Mrs. Schilz
