Principal's Message

Greeting Grewenow Families!

In this edition, Id' like to extend an invitation to all of our families to our school's annual Title I meeting on Thursday, May 2 at 6:30PM in the Multi-Purpose room (which immediately follows the Grewenow Expo and ice cream social).

At this meeting, you will be provided with an update on our School Achievement Plan, how Title monies are being allocated to benefit student literacy and numeracy, and some insight into what next year's achievement plan will hold. The presentation will last no more than 30 minutes and there will be an opportunity to ask questions.

Hope to see you there.

Career Showcase Event on May 8

Attention Families:

Do you have a career, talent, or skill you could share with our Grewenow students? We plan to give students an opportunity to explore careers, talents, skills to open new interests for them. On Wednesday, May 8 from 8:30 - 10:30, students will be able to attend three 30 minute workshops, and would love to have you be a part of that day by sharing your knowledge, leading a session(s), or helping students transition to the activities! Our goal is to provide 20 different activities.

If you are interested in helping our students grow in their interests, please print and complete the form below, a KUSD Background Check form (attached), and return it to Grewenow by Wednesday, April 17th. If you have any more questions, please call the Grewenow Elementary Office at 262-359-6362.
