KES Playground and Outdoor Play Area Status

posted Mar 8, 2018, 9:09 AM by Jamie Koehler   [ updated Mar 8, 2018, 9:55 AM ]

Due to the ongoing construction and renovation project at KES and the impact on our outdoor playground/field area, I would like to advise our students (and staff members too!) to continue bringing good boots to school as we head into spring. We will always attempt to go outdoors for our recesses unless it is very cold/muddy/rainy/etc. and if we are all consistently equipped with good boots to face muddy conditions, we will be able to enjoy outdoors more often. We should all please bring boots (that are OK to get muddy) as well as a comfy pair of indoor sneakers/shoes to change into so we can keep our classroom and hallway floors as clean and dry as possible.

Wisconsin Students in Grades 3-8 will be participating in the Forward Exam assessment during the March-May testing window.  Please read this letter regarding the upcoming Wisconsin Forward Exam at Grafton School District.  This exam is valuable in your child's experience and practice with a nationally aligned college and career readiness assessment and the results contribute to the state measurement of the quality of your school.

Grafton Schools Wireless Mic Upgrade

The wireless mics used by the Grafton School District need to be replaced as the frequency they run on has been sold by the FCC.
The Grafton Music Parents are hoping to raise funds in order to replace the microphones so that all district events can continue to have quality sound during musicals, concerts and functions.
