Welcome back to the start of a new school year at Gratigny Elementary School! I am extremely excited about the upcoming school year and look forward to working with each of you for many years to come. It is my pleasure to welcome you on behalf of the Gratigny teachers and staff to our wonderful school. We are proud of what Gratigny Elementary School has to offer the community. Please read this handbook and refer to it throughout the school year. The purpose of the Student/Parent Handbook is to offer a means of communicating between the home and school. Gratigny Elementary School operates with definite rules and regulations. Additionally, we must follow the Miami-Dade County Public School Board rules and the State of Florida and Federal Government Laws. Understanding these policies and procedures are for the protection, welfare-an·d educational advantage of you and your child. – Close cooperation between the home and school is essential to providing the best education possible for our children. Parents are encouraged to- be a partner in their child’s education. It is important that you attend scheduled meetings for parents. Our Community Involvement Specialist, Title I staff, and our PTA will be planning meetings for you to attend. Through these meetings and parent/teacher conferences, you will have opportunities to get to know your school. We need your support for us to provide a stimulating environment full of successful school experiences. The Gratigny Elementary School staff is ready to answer any questions and help you with all your concerns. Help us help your child achieve success and prepare him/her to become our future leaders.
