Welcome to a New Week!

Hi GIS Community,

First and foremost, thank you for working with us last week with our flurry of bus challenges. It's always our priority to get your kiddos home safe, and last week was full of unknowns. I fully recognize that, and I'm hoping this week will improve!

We're heading into our first full week of December, followed by a busy and wonderful weekend! The craft fair was a success. It was a windy and drizzly day, but that didn't stop people from filling the halls and supporting local crafters. A HUGE shout-out to the PTA for their hard work putting this event together. Next weekend, people who purchase poinsettias will come to school on Saturday for pick-up between 10-12.

As always, my door is open, and I look forward to connecting if you have questions or concerns!

Happy Holidays!

Ski and Ride Update


We have over 18 students signed up to participate in the ski and ride program and a ton of family support on and off the mountain. I'm feeling full of gratitude! I will send out a consent form from Smuggs this week, be on the lookout!

Our Grand Isle School Store

The PTA has worked with a vendor to provide us with a school store so that families can order Grand Isle School gear!

Lost and Found

We have a large collection of sweatshirts, pants, shirts, jackets, water bottles, and some lunch boxes. If you're coming into school for pickup or drop-off, please swing by and see if anything belongs to your kiddo!
