Dear Grasse Families,

Howard Vogel

I would like to welcome you to our school's website. This year the J.M. Grasse Elementary School's school theme "We Care!" This new school year begins with a continued focus on excellence and an educational program promoting student achievement. We are one of seven elementary schools in the Pennridge School District and we have approximately 475 students in grades kindergarten through fifth grade. 

I am excited to return for my fourth year as principal at Grasse. My name is Mr. Vogel and I am in my my fifteenth year as a school administrator and I am really looking forward to the 2016-2017 school year! 

The staff’s commitment to excellence is one of the reasons why Grasse Elementary enjoys such a great reputation. We enjoy good volunteer support and have a very supportive and active PTO. The PTO plays an integral role in creating a school community by developing and organizing events in order to help defray the cost of field trips, school assemblies, technology, and other materials that will benefit the students. If you are interested in volunteering please contact Mrs. Michelle Bogle or any other member of the PTO board and they will find a way to use your talents and time.  

Our school will again use the “CARES” program. CARES is a Positive School Behavior System which promotes good behavior and positive choices. CARES stands for Cooperation, A+ attitude, Respect, Empathy, and Safety. 

Finally, it is the students who make Grasse Elementary an outstanding school. Thank you for visiting our website! Feel free to access your child’s grade level website for important information relevant to your child’s class by clicking on the teacher name link in the Staff Directory tab above. The J.M. Grasse site is also accessible through the Pennridge School District’s website.
