  • Friday Specials Schedule
    Image result for PE, art, music, library clipartFriday Specials Schedule on Tuesday, September 26

    A reminder for families that (Tuesday, September 26th) we will follow a Friday Specials Schedule due to our no school day on Friday, September 29th. Throughout the year, when we have a Friday off of school, we will follow a Friday Specials Schedule either that same week or the following week. A Friday Specials Schedule means that students will participate that day in the specials classes that they would normally have on a Friday: Physical Education, Music, Art, and Library. This schedule was developed to balance out the time students spend in their Specials classes. We will try to remind families of these schedules each time they occur throughout the year so you can best prepare your students.

    Please be sure that your student has the proper attire and materials to participate in their Friday specials class.

    If you have any questions, please contact the Kennedy office at (262) 376-5650

  • Picture Retakes

    Students who were not photographed during our registration days will have the opportunity to get their picture taken on our Picture Retake Day, Friday, September 22. A letter has been sent home with a picture order form to those students who were listed as not being photographed. If you do not want to order pictures your child's picture will still be taken this day to include in the yearbook and in the class composite photograph. 

    Families who want their school pictures to be retaken can also participate in this picture day.

    Grafton LEGO League Jr.: New Parents Information Meeting on October 17

    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.
