East Grand Plains Elementary School- September 2021

Welcome Back

We hope that everyone had a restful summer and are ready for a great 2021-2022 school year! We are so excited to have our teachers and students back in the classroom! I don't know about you, but I have sure missed this. Our first month of school has been a busy one, for sure. Students have met their teachers, went over routines and procedures, laughed, played, and learned! Here are some quick reminders as we are still learning and navigating this "not quite normal" school year.

Be On Time: School doors open for students at 7:45AM and the tardy bell rings at 8:00AM. Please help students be on time and ready to learn.

Masks: Make sure that students show up with a clean mask. Wash these often and remind students to wear them properly.

Not Feeling Well: If your child is not feeling well, please keep them home and call the office. We want to keep as many students in school as possible. Also, help them get to bed on time so that they can get lots of rest!

Early Release: Wednesday is early release. Students are dismissed at 1:45PM

We are looking forward to a great school year at EGP! Thank you for working with us to give your child the best education around!

Meet the Principal: Mrs. Busby

It is a pleasure to introduce myself and share my excitement about joining the East Grand Plain Wolves family! Since the start of the school year, I have enjoyed meeting the students, staff, and some of the community. I have been amazed to see the accomplishments and commitment at EGP. It is truly an honor to be a part of this wonderful and dedicated community.

I would like to share a little bit of information about myself. I am married to a wonderful husband and teacher and we have an almost four-year-old son who is our greatest joy. My educational experience has included spending several wonderful years as a mathematics teacher at Mountain View Middle School. After completing my Education Administration and Master’s in Business degrees, I had the pleasure of expanding my role in education as an assistant principal at Sierra Middle School.

I have a tremendous passion for working with wonderful students and staff and I am looking forward to working together to provide an outstanding learning experience for every child at East Grand Plains.

Character Counts: Trustworthiness

This year, every six weeks, teachers will be on the look out for students that exhibit certain character traits. Right now we are focusing on TRUSTWORTHINESS. What does it mean to be trustworthy?

-Be honest. Don't deceive, cheat or steal.

-Be reliable. Do what you say you will do.

-Have the courage to do the right thing.

-Build a good reputation.

-Be loyal. Stand by your family, friends, and country

We will announce our Students of Character in our next newsletter! Every Wednesday, students are encouraged to wear a certain color to represent that pillar of character. The color for trustworthiness is blue!
