Principal's Letter

Welcome to Grand Prairie Elementary for the 2019-2020 school year!  This year our theme is, “Destination Learning,” and we can’t wait to help your child on his/her educational journey! At Grand Prairie, we believe in providing children a chance 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 dedicated staff is constantly implementing current research-based instructional practices in all content areas. We utilize a variety of assessments, both summative and formative. We continually review student performance in all areas to guide our classroom and individual instruction.

Socially, your child will continue to have many opportunities to understand and internalize positive character traits.  At the elementary level, we focus on helping students learn the difference between “expected behavior” and “unexpected behavior.” Our teachers are always on the lookout for students demonstrating positive Character Counts traits of respect, responsibility, and caring.  Your son/daughter may even come home with a “Tiger Stripe” reward he/she earned for demonstrating positive character traits.

In order for us to be successful, we ask that you join with us as partners in your child’s education. We believe that children grow and develop to their highest potential when a strong relationship is built between the home and school.  Our goal is to develop a home school relationship based on mutual respect and support as we work together in providing opportunities for student success.

We cannot wait to help your child on their educational journey.  Please know that my door is always open!  If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to reach out to me.  Once again, welcome to Grand Prairie!  I cannot wait to share this wonderful school year with you and your child!
