posted Sep 21, 2017, 7:59 PM by Jean Ebel


Please CLICK HERE to read more from Mrs. Noel about morning drop off at GES!

Please remember when dropping off students in the morning......
  • *Pull all the way up along the drop off lane, this will alleviate traffic from building up on HWY 60
  • *When students are exiting cars, please have them exit from the door closest to the sidewalk
  • *If for ANY reason you need to exit your car when dropping off your child, please park and then walk them to the door.  
Thank you for your cooperation!

Picture Retake Day is September 26th.  Whether you didn't make it to registration for a picture or the hair just wasn't quite right, this is the day to get it done!  If you have already ordered pictures and would like them retaken, please send back the packet that has already been purchased.  This will tell us that you want your child's picture retaken.  If your child did not have a picture taken at registration, the office has a listing of these students, their picture will be taken on the 26th.  If your child had their picture taken at registration but you did not order pictures and would still like your child's picture retaken, please contact the office at 262-376-5705 or email at jebel@grafton.k12.wi.us.  REMEMBER, you can order pictures at anytime by simply going to this VIP link.  CLICK HERE

Grafton LEGO League Jr., for students in 5K through 3rd grade, is holding an information meeting for parents of children interested in participating. The session will be held on Tuesday, October 17 from 6:30 - 7:30 in the Grafton Elementary School Library. Parents will learn more about LEGO League and how to register their child. Parents of children who previously participated do not need to attend. Registration opens on October 16

The Grafton LEGO League is a district-wide, hands-on program that engages children through experimentation and a culture of sharing and learning from others. It goes beyond just “playing with LEGOS”.  After a 12-week program that includes research, building and computer programming, teams have the opportunity to showcase their project at the Grafton LEGO Expo on April 14.  CLICK HERE for more information.
