5-8 Principal's Post

Dear Granby Families,

I look forward to starting a new school year in the East Newton school district.  I am excited to build relationships with the teachers, students and families who proudly wear the red, white and blue.  As I have transitioned to this district I have only heard great things about the PEOPLE.  There are many challenges faced by school districts across our region.  However, if the people are great, those challenges are worth overcoming together.   

Important Dates:

Back to School Night - Aug. 15 6:30-7:30 pm

First Day of School - Aug. 20 8:00 am
