Welcome to the John M. Grasse Elementary School Website. I hope you find this site to be a helpful tool to extend the lines of communication between home and school.
My name is Michelle Wiley, and it is my pleasure to serve as principal of this great school. The passion that I have for my work as a teacher and administrator, I believe, is the greatest strength that I bring as the principal of J.M. Grasse. I enjoy the work that I do and understand its far-reaching impact on the lives of children. I am very mindful of my obligation to promote an educational experience that will encourage and motivate students to aspire to their fullest potential. I get very excited about the work that happens here, because I see that very same passion and commitment in the faculty and staff of Grasse Elementary.
Our passion and dedication sets the stage for promoting a school culture that is rich with enthusiasm and promise. Daily reinforcement of school-wide positive behaviors is provided through our C.A.R.E.S. program (Cooperation-Positive Attitude-Respect-Empathy-Safety) that rewards students for following school expectations and going "above and beyond" to help others.
John M. Grasse students and staff are supported by a committed P.T.O. Committed volunteers support the positive school climate by bringing Grasse families together for P.T.O. sponsored events, such as the annual Lucky Duck Bingo Night and the Race for Education. Financial support is provided by the Grasse Elementary P.T.O. through a variety of fundraising activities.
J.M. Grasse Elementary School truly reflects the community from which it draws students. Hardworking, caring, and responsible are just a few of the positive adjectives that describe the students, parents, and staff of our great school.
