From the President
Grand Ledge Public Schools shall provide diverse learning opportunities of exemplary quality to promote distinguished student achievement.
Happy New Year 2020!
This new decade will bring many exciting changes to the Grand Ledge Public Schools! Our community is looking forward to updating and restructuring our buildings to maximize student growth and success. This spring we will break ground on the first of these upgrades with the modification of Holbrook and Beagle elementaries. It is exciting to be part of the process as it begins. We will continue to provide updates through the district website, school newsletters and community meetings to maintain strong communication and transparency.
I am very excited to take the lead as president of the Board of Education this year. I invite you to get (or stay) involved with the schools in any way you are able. Joining a parent group, volunteering in a classroom, or attending a school board meeting are all great ways to build our sense of community. We have many wonderful academic lessons going on continuously in our classrooms at all levels. Additionally, extracurricular offerings, often run by dedicated staff/parents, like robotics, foreign language and other clubs, a huge variety of sports from preschool community recreation through high school, and the outstanding plays put on at our high school auditorium, all allow additional opportunities for social growth and development.
Grand Ledge Public Schools have so many wonderful avenues for our students to explore and further their development, and we continue to strive to improve. Please do not hesitate to reach out to the board or Superintendent with any questions or concerns you may have. You are important to this community of learners! As my Grandma always told me “good, better, best, never let it rest, until your good is better and your better is best”. Grand Ledge is not resting on its laurels, we are committed to being our best and working together is critical to reach our goals.
Denise DuFort, President
Grand Ledge Board of Education
