From the Desk of Mrs. Stocks
The Greystone Elementary faculty and staff are happy that your children will be students at Greystone Elementary during the 2018-2019 school year. Thank you for entrusting these special young people to us. The opportunity to work together to help them learn and grow is a privilege. We also learn a great deal from our students as we watch their desire to learn, their creativity, and the traits that make them such unique individuals. May this year be a special time for our students, their families, and the Greystone staff.
Please make sure you pay attention to the important dates below. Most of you have completed online registration, but if you have not, you must do that before you can pay fees, complete the registration verification process, and receive your child's class placement letter.
You should have received an email regarding my school fees which included your child's state ID number. This number is assigned to your child and is used for their access to technology, as well as used for my school fees. If you are new and did not receive this number, you can call the school and we can look it up for you. Returning parents, if you can't find the number, just ask your child. Most of them know this number by heart!
It is going to be a great year where our students will Learn... Lead... Leave a Legacy!
