Our Gray Hawk Mission Statement

OUR GRAY HAWK FAMILY works together to help students feel safe, loved, and inspired so they can be empowered learners and engaged citizens.

Thank you so much!

It has been quite a year and as I sit here and reflect upon all that has happened I am both excited and a bit somber. We have all worked together this year to create a fantastic school! We have done this during what many have considered the most challenging year ever. There have been obstacles and challenges but no one has ever backed down from them. I am incredibly proud of what we continue to build at Gray Hawk.

It is said that building a new culture and establishing your identity as an organization can take 3 to 5 years. I am proud of what WE have all built together as a GRAY HAWK COMMUNITY and I look forward to what the 22/23 school year holds.

I want to thank OUR GRAY HAWK PTO for all of their hard work and support as well. I continue to share with everyone how fortunate we are to have such an amazing PTO serving OUR school!

I will not communicate weekly as I do throughout the school year but will share things via Skyward as things come up during the summer. Please know that I am only an email away if you need anything. Have a wonderful summer and thank you for making OUR first year together so special!

If you were interested in getting a yearbook and did not get one, please stop by and purchase one by Wednesday at 4:00 from Mrs. Billings. We have five left and they are for sale. These are available on a first come, first served basis. Big shout out to Mrs. Mulich for her tireless work on creating such an outstanding yearbook.
