From the Principal

Dear Grand Prairie Families, 
 
Welcome to Grand Prairie!  At Grand Prairie, we believe in the importance of providing aexperience where children are given the opportunity to grow academically, socially, and emotionally. We strive to maximize each child’s individual potential in all areas, while creating a happy, healthy, and safe learning environment.  
 
Our staff is dedicated to implementing current research-based instructional practices in all content areas. Students will grow and develop skills in critical thinking, creativity, collaboration, and communication. Our highly qualified teachers strive to challenge all learners in their classrooms while making sure to create a safe and fun educational experience.  
 
Grand Prairie is dedicated to ensuring an inclusive and equitable experience for all students.  Our goal is to ensure everyone who enters our building feels valued and respected. Socially, your child will continue to have many opportunities to understand and internalize positive character traits.  Students will learn the difference between “expected behavior” and “unexpected behavior.” Staff members are always on the lookout to celebrate students demonstrating expected character traits! 
 
We believe that children grow and develop to their highest potential when a strong relationship is built between home and school. Our goal is to develop a home school connection based on mutual respect and support as we work together in providing opportunities for student success.  Our focus remains aligned to our district mission, “to prepare students to be confident, life-long learners and productive citizens by challenging them to reach their fullest potential and by providing a quality educational environment in partnership with family and community.”   
 
Once again, welcome to Grand Prairie! I am so excited to welcome your student and you into our Grand Prairie family! Please don’t hesitate to reach out to me with any questions or concerns. My door is always open! 
 
Sincerely, 
 
Kirsten Frankovich
