Teachers, Staff Thank Volunteers

Last Friday, Grand Ridge Elementary School teachers and staff members gathered with maracas, tambourines and colorful signs along Northeast Park Drive during the morning drop-off time to thank parents, guardians and volunteers. As families and neighbors (and even a few pets) walked and drove to school on the last day for break, they were surprised by the display.

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. 

Student Support

Multi-Tiered Systems of Support

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.
