We would like to encourage you to read with your child each day for at least 20 minutes. The more you read with your child the better their reading and comprehension will become.
Welcome to Preschool!!
There are three preschool classrooms at Griffith Elementary School. Each classroom has a highly qualified teacher who is dedicated to your child's learning. There is one Voluntary PreK classroom, one 4 year old classroom and one 3 year old classroom.
In preschool, students learn how to form friendships with peers through play activities. They are beginning to recognize letters, numbers, shapes and colors. Their teachers will encourage them to be more independent and focus on preparing them for kindergarten.
The learning process is one that involves three parties: the student, the parents and their teachers. Working together as a team with your child's teacher will show your child that education is important and that you support your child and his teacher in his learning.
Griffith Elementary school wants to let you and your child know that attendance is a must (AIM). Being here at school is important, but please remember when your child has a fever, stomach bug or diarrhea, they cannot return to school till they have been free of the symptoms for 24 hours. The preschool teachers would like to welcome you into their classrooms and look forward to having a wonderful year of learning with you and your child.
