Hi Students and Families!

Welcome to the new school year!!!  I am so excited to be your 1st grade teacher and am looking forward to getting to know all of you.  On this web page you will find a lot of useful information such as school events, special dates, academic websites, forms and documents. I will also use Seesaw and group emails to communicate important information.

If you have any questions or concerns, I can be reached via phone, email and/or notes.  I will do my best to respond in a timely manner.

Keep smiling and be safe!    -  Mrs. Payton

Erin’s Law 2020-2021

We are required by Erin's Law to provide lessons on sexual abuse and prevention education. During the weeks of December 7th and January 25th, Grand Prairie Elementary School Social Workers will be teaching a lesson in your child’s classroom about the "Think First and Stay Safe" program. The lesson in December will cover the concepts of "Using My Built In Computer: Staying Healthy and Safe." The lesson in January will cover "Laws Help Protect Me: Kids Have Rights Too!" and "Listening to My Instincts: No Secrets".

Additionally, the social workers will also provide bullying presentations during the weeks of November 16th and February 1st.

Should your child have any questions, you may refer to the handout that will be provided to them on the day of the lesson. If you have additional questions feel free to contact a School Social Worker – Morgan Bilthuis, Rebekah Munch and Kelly McGovern
