Principal's Message

Welcome to Grant Elementary School! Home of the College Bound Tigers!


In this 2022-23 school year, as we continue to navigate education during the pandemic, Grant Elementary is committed to ensuring all students have access to a rigorous and well rounded education. We will continue to focus on foundational Skills in Literacy and math to ensure students are proficient readers and have fluency in basic math concepts by the end of 2nd Grade.  Science, Engineering, Technology and Arts will be integrated into our teaching and learning.  This school year we will be collaborating with various partners to support our instructional program. 9 DOTS Get Coding, teaches students how to code and build capacity of our teachers to teach coding.  Inner City Arts, works with professional teaching artists who provide our students hands-on instruction in a range of subject areas within the visual, performing and media arts. Playworks create play environments that help our students be their best by maximizing play at recess to improve our students' physical health and social emotional learning.  

Grant Elementary will also be following Superintendent Carvalho Strategic Plan. Part of the plan there are five Pillars that represent critical areas we will focus on for the next four years. The five pillars are Academic Excellence, Joy and Wellness, Engagement and Collaboration, Operational Effectiveness and Investing in Staff.


We will appreciate the support of all our stakeholder groups including the members of the public to fulfil this ambition. It continues to a be a privilege of a lifetime to serve the scholars and champions of the Grant School community. Go Tigers!
