Please be sure to check your pick up & drop off times and locations.

We’d like to say a big thank you for supporting the implementation of our Bus Card Program this Spring. The transition has been incredibly smooth and students have been wonderful about keeping cards safe and having them ready to scan on and off the bus. Well done!

 

To help keep bus cards secure over the Summer, schools will be collecting bus cards from elementary students during the last week of classes. Cards will then be re-issued during the first week of school in September.

 

A reminder that updated bus routes for the 2024/25 school year will be posted on the District website by August 31/2024.  Please confirm your bus stop times before the start of school on September 3/2024 by visiting:the link provided above.

Principal's Message

Welcome back to another exciting school year at Greenwood Elementary School! We are thrilled to have all our students back and ready to learn! As we embark on the 2023-2024 school year, we want to emphasize our commitment to developing critical thinking skills through the lens of curricular areas in hands on ways.

We believe that fostering critical thinking skills is crucial in preparing our students for the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead. We encourage parents and families to join us in this effort by engaging in meaningful conversations with their children about what they are learning and how it applies to the world around them.

We also want to invite families to join our Parent Action Committee (PAC) to help with fundraising and school events. The PAC plays a crucial role in ensuring that our students have access to the resources and opportunities they need to thrive. We will be organizing several events throughout the year, including fun, learning adventures, field studies, open houses, and your involvement is essential to student’s success.

Finally, we want to stress the importance of family involvement in the learning process. We know that when families are engaged, students are more likely to succeed. We encourage parents and families to attend parent-teacher conferences, volunteer in the school, and participate in school-wide events. Your involvement sends a powerful message to your child that their education is a top priority.

We look forward to working together with our families to create a successful school year. Thank you for your ongoing support, and we can’t wait to see what students achieve this year!

Yours in education,

Ms. Angela Bragg, Principal
