Principal's Letter

Dear Graystone Families,

Graystone is a wonderful school with a dedicated staff, supportive families and amazing students. Our teachers are continuously collaborating with each other and improving their own craft through professional development opportunities in order to provide the finest 21st century learning for our students. We also have a wonderful support staff that runs our office, health office, supports technology and keeps our school clean.

Graystone’s Home and School Club supports our students and families in a variety of ways. The HSC fundraises to support programs such as Schmal Science, Community School for Music and Arts, Rhythm and Moves, Recess 101, Almaden Art, Art Vistas and Mindfulness for our students. Additionally, Home and School Club supports our classrooms by providing funding for classroom materials and grade level materials for our students. Home and school club also, organizes a variety of community events for our Graystone families.  Make sure to check out events such as Pumpkin Bust, the family picnic, the family dance, Walk-a-thon and Heritage Day this year.

At Graystone, we are Graystone Great! This means we are Considerate, Responsible and Safe in the classroom and in all areas of the school. We use the PBIS, positive behavior intervention system that focuses on positive reinforcement for students following the school expectations.

Most of my communication is done through email. I send out weekly emails on Friday to prepare you for the upcoming week. Home and School club also sends emails about upcoming events.

We look forward to working with you and your family as your child prepares for middle school.
