Welcome

Love is in the air at Greenbrier Primary. The students are falling in love with reading. We really enjoyed reading How Full is Your Bucket ? and all of the Literacy Month activities. Please continue to read with your child. Join us this month as we celebrate Black History Month. There will be fun activities throughout the month. We appreciate your participation in your child’s academic progress. We enjoy working collectively with you to ensure your child receives a quality education.

Black History Month

Greenbrier Primary will observe Black History Month. Black History Month celebrates and honors the many achievements and contributions made by African Americans to the economic, cultural, and political development of America.

Roc Solid Ready Bag Drive: February 1 - 25

Ready Bags

"Roc Solid Ready Bags are given to families during one of the worst times of their lives… when they find out their child has cancer. Many kids are admitted to start treatment right away, and everything else comes to a screeching halt. It’s a moment no parent can be prepared for. Ready Bags include everything that a family might need for their unexpected hospital stay.

This includes toiletries, a blanket, a journal, a tablet and more. These essentials are helpful, but we hope they also send a message to each family that they are not alone as they begin this journey.


This is Roc Solid’s first step toward building hope in a situation nobody ever hopes to face. "

Each classroom will have a box for students to place donated items.

Important Information

Character Counts

Starting January 24, there will be a Character Trait WOW bulletin board up front. If an adult sees a student exhibiting the Monthly Character Trait, that student will receive a Great Job Card that will be displayed on the bulletin board. The student will bring the card to the office and they will be able to pick a charm from the charm box and create either a necklace or bracelet out of them. Some charms are for specific traits and others are just random. The student will only be able to collect one charm at a time, thus allowing the student to come back for additional charms based on the targeted behavior trait.

National School Counseling Week

February 7 - 11

We are fortunate to have Mrs. Tamara Thompson and Mrs. Allie Wagenshutz as our School Counselors. Your student is encouraged to send a note appreciation to their School Counselor.

Report Cards

Report Cards will be available in Parent Vue on Friday, February 11, 2022. IEP Progress Reports will be sent home on Thursday, February 10, 2022. Please be sure to contact your child’s teacher if you have concerns. We are committed to providing your child with the best instruction possible. Initial retention letters will also be sent home.

MAP Testing / Report

Your child will be taking the mid-year Measures of Academic Progress (MAP) assessment. The testing window is is scheduled for February 2 - February 11. Your child's teacher will provide more information with your child's specific testing dates. The MAP test is used to determine your child's instructional level level and to measure academic growth throughout the school year in the areas of reading and math. A copy of your child's report will be sent home. Please contact your child's teacher if you have any questions about your child's report or performance.

Health and Safety Practices


I think we’ve all come to know that monitoring the health of your children and keeping them at home when they aren’t feeling well is a vital part of keeping our schools and community well. We are asking our families to continue this practice.
