Griswold School Families
Griswold School is proud to continue the tradition of School Families for the sixth year. For the past several years, Griswold School has worked to establish connections among students and staff, provide character education and community building lessons, and improve our school climate through School Families. All students and staff are members of various School Families, which are mixed groups of kindergarten through grade 5 students. Each year, these families remain the same, which helps to carry student and teacher connections through many years at Griswold School. We believe that students benefit from multiple connections beyond their classroom teachers and students; the more teachers and students they can talk to and rely on, the better their experiences - socially, emotionally, behaviorally, and academically - at Griswold School.
This year, School Families will meet 6 times. Each meeting is 30 minutes. Our goal this year is to continue to build community connections while implementing lessons and activities revolving around various Habits of Mind. For example, possible focus areas may be perseverance, listening with empathy, thinking before acting, and working together to solve problems. See the link below for more information on the Habits of Mind.
