This school year is quickly coming to an end. With the end of any school year comes concerts, award programs, dance/prom, and many other exciting events to culminate an incredible school year.
On Thursday, June 9, we will honor the members of Granby Memorial High School Class of 2022 at their graduation ceremony on the Stadium Field. This is a night I am confident our graduates and their families are looking forward to, marking the end to their formative time in the Granby Public Schools. The Granby Board of Education, staff and administration are committed to celebrating the Class of 2022 to the highest level possible and sending them off in style for their next journey in life.
The past few months have been a very exciting time in the Granby Public Schools. We honored our staff during Teacher/Staff Appreciation Week; held a STEAM Night at Kelly Lane Primary School; band/choral concerts; athletic teams were in full action; students participated in field days; middle school students worked to release salmon into Salmon Brook, and Wells Road students performed You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown. These were just some of the incredible activities that took place in our schools. I cannot thank our entire school community enough for the dedication, perseverance, commitment and enthusiasm displayed allowing our staff and students to engage in end-of-year traditional activities.
During the summer, we will be running a summer enrichment program, a summer intervention program, a music camp in collaboration with the Granby Parks and Recreation Department, and an Advanced Placement Course Academy. Our team will also be in deep planning for our students’ return for the 2022-2023 school year on Aug. 26.
This school year will be marked as when the Granby Board of Education developed and adopted the Granby Public Schools’ Moving Forward Together: Granby Public Schools Strategic Plan 2021-2025 and the Granby Public Schools’ Vision of a Graduate. Our district’s focus will continue to be grounded in the six major goal areas of this plan: Student Learning and Achievement, Community Development, Safety and Social Emotional Well-Being, Budget Development and Fiscal Management, Embracing Diversity, and Professional Learning. You can find the Moving Forward Together 2021-2025 Strategic Plan on the main page of the district website.
The Granby Public Schools will continue to be committed to providing the best possible education for our students.
