From the Principal

Happy Holidays Grieco Superstars students, parents and staff!!

Just wanted to take a moment to wish all of our students, parents and staff members a very happy and healthy holiday season.

Our students and teachers have worked hard thus far preparing your children for the next level of their educational experience. We continue to implore you to work with your children at home to bridge the gap between school and home.

Over the holidays, please work with your child/children to ensure they complete any work they were assigned. Take time out of your schedule to do some exploratory learning with your youngsters (museums, day trips, library, etc).

Thank you for sending us the best children you have!!! We are grateful for every Grieco Superstar in our building!! Let us continue to work together to make whatever their dreams are a reality.

On behalf of the Grieco staff, thank you for every positive comment, card, or expression of love you have shared with us over this cheerful season!!! Pray you are blessed with abundant Love, Peace, Joy, Hope and Grace over the season!!!

Let’s make it a most excellent year!!


Ms. Small-Bailey, Principal
“I do believe you will make it a great year!!”
