Craft and Caroling Day - December 21st

The holiday season is such a fun time of year, and Granby Elementary has a very special tradition. Each year teachers, parents, volunteers, businesses, and students come together to participate in our Craft and Caroling Day. Students get the opportunity to make gifts for their loved ones in the morning, and then they participate in caroling and other activities in the afternoon. We are in need of volunteers to support this special event. Please contact Rachael Delong at 887-3312 or by email rachael.delong@egsd.org to sign up, or if you have questions.

Winter has Arrived!

Even in the cold winter months, we believe outdoor recess is an important and valuable part of the student’s day at Granby Elementary School. With that in mind, we ask that you consider the temperature and weather conditions when assisting your child with clothing for the day. There may be times when the weather is deemed too cold for outdoor recess. We make that determination on a daily basis, but please remember that on most days we will have outdoor recess even if it is for an abbreviated time. Winter coats, hats, gloves and long pants are most appropriate on these cold days.


We realize that temperatures in our building may vary, so dressing in layers is a good practice. In addition, please consider labeling coats, gloves, hates, scarves, etc. as these items of clothing sometimes go missing. Please take the time to check out the Lost and Found, as we has a large number of items at this time of year.


Thank you for your attention and continued support and stay warm!
