Welcome to a New Week!

Hi GIS Community,

It's hard to believe that there are only nine school days left before we leave for the holiday break. At school, it's not uncommon to see a small spike in emotions and behaviors in kiddos; there is a lot of excitement heading into the break. We will keep routines as consistent as possible at school, ensure we're going over expectations for all school environments frequently, and use our PBIS language to help reinforce expected behaviors.

We have been fortunate that the weather has been relatively mild for December. Looking at the forecast ahead, it seems like we're in for some cold and possibly snowy weather. Please send your students to school prepared to go outside. Label all boots, jackets, hats, and mittens with initials and the grade, if possible. Sending extra clothes is always a good idea too!

We look forward to an exciting week and a half sprinkled with various activities and events. If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to reach out!

Snack Donations

If you are interested in donating snacks to classrooms. Please connect with your student('s) classroom teacher(s). We're always thankful for these donations!
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!
