"Relationships are the agents of change." Dr. Bruce Perry
Year 3 - August 21 - 25, 2023
A GREAT FIRST WEEK!
Dismissal was a HUGE SUCCESS! This is the first time in three years that we have gotten dismissal down to 10 MINUTES in the first week. OUR staff begin calling students out to vehicles at 3:45 and OUR last car rolled out at 3:55 on Friday! Thank you so much for trusting the process and being a part of the solution!
Please remember that we do ask that you NOT park in the side lot and walk up to pick up your child. If you are in a vehicle, please go through the car line. Also, if your child is walking home from school, please wait in the designated areas on the North Lawn and the South Lawn (closest to the cross walk). Staff will escort the students to you. Again, these procedures are in place because it gives us a bit more control of foot traffic and who is close to the building at dismissal. These procedures are in place for the safety and security of OUR students.Thank you for your understanding. Please check out the information you need to know below.

DOLLY PARTON IMAGINATION LIBRARY
The Dolly Parton Imagination Library of Kansas is now available for ALL Kansas Children birth to age 5. All children in Kansas are eligible to enroll and participate. Please click on the Dolly Parton Imagination Library logo below to enroll.
This program will provide a FREE BOOK each month for all registered children meaning the foundation could provide one free book for each month of your child's life from birth to 5. That is 60 books!
Please do not pass up this opportunity to instill the joy of books in your child's life!
Request for NEW FAMILY PICTURES
OUR FAMILIES are why we are here and we want to celebrate you. If you are not new to GRAY HAWK but you never turned in a picture, please do so.
I also wanted to let everyone know how much we appreciate everyone making a concerted effort to be here on time. We had VERY FEW tardies last week which also helps keep us on track. As a reminder, our doors open at 8:35 am. This is the time for our students to enter the building, pick up breakfast if they choose to, and get into their classroom. The bell rings at 8:45 am and teachers are beginning their community meetings every day AT this time. When a student is tardy, they are missing out on being a part of building their positive classroom community.
Thank you for making attendance a priority for OUR GRAY HAWKS!
GOAL: "OUR attendance rate will meet or exceed 96% for the 23/24 school year."
