Grand Ridge Elementary

A night when parents of students who have qualified for the Highly Capable Program, can get a glimpse into what their student is doing in the Primary Enrichment Program (PEP) and the Special Approach to Gifted Education program (SAGE).

ISD Central Administration Building, 5150 220th Ave. S.E., Issaquah, WA 98029

Hello, ISD Community! Today I am excited to share my progress on the first half of my First 100 Days. So far, my work has been centered on listening and learning.

Here's a video I filmed to share a bit about how I've been inspired by our students and staff as I visited our schools and service sites

The next 50 days of the plan are focused on engaging with you. As a part of this phase, I’d like to invite all students, families, community members and staff to a Community Forum from 5-6:30 p.m. on Oct. 20 at the Administration Building, 5150 220th Ave. S.E., Issaquah. I’ll share more about the format and topics soon. 

This event will be hosted in-person only. We will have interpreters available.

Principal Jill Ravenscraft

Meet Principal Jill Ravenscraft!

Hi, Grizzly families! The best parts about being a principal are that I get to be with kids all day long, I have the honor of watching dedicated staff members support our students in the most devoted and creative ways, and I get to see our collective future unfold right before my very eyes.  What’s not to love? A few fun facts about me: I really enjoy the children’s books “Maniac Magee” (I cannot get through it without crying) and “There’s a Monster at the End of This Book” (Sesame Street, from when my son was little). When I’m listening to music, I’ll pick anything that I can dance and clean to (NO Techno, however). My bucket list includes visiting all of the U.S. National Parks and staying in an apartment with a view of Central Park in New York City from Thanksgiving to New Year’s Day. I’m left-handed, and if I go back two generations on both sides of my family, only my paternal grandfather and one cousin were also left-handed.

MTSS is shaping the student experience at our school and throughout our district. Multi-Tiered Systems of Support, or MTSS, is a nationally recognized, evidence-based framework guiding our approach to academics, social emotional learning, behavior and attendance.
