Principal's Message

  • July 14, 2021

    Welcome Back to School!

    Greetings Griffith Parents/Guardians,

    Happy New School Year to you! I am so excited and honored to serve as your child’s principal. Here at Griffith Elementary my team and I have High Expectations, and we are committed to providing your child with a rigorous, quality experience that will adequately prepare him or her for middle school and beyond.

    We also have three clear behavior expectations for our learners:
    Be Safe: Being safe means keeping hands, feet, and objects to yourself and following directions the first time given.
    Be Responsible: Being responsible means completing work, having materials ready, and following directions the first time given.
    Be Respectful: Being respectful means treating others the way you want to be treated. So, if you want others to be kind to you, you must be kind to them.

    As we move beyond the Pandemic of 2020, it is important to note that wearing face covering are no longer required, but are highly encouraged.

    We are looking forward to meeting all of you on Thursday, July 29, 2021, at “Meet the Teacher Night” from 4:30 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. We will kick off this event with “Meet the Principal” from 4:15 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. in the cafeteria.

    The first day of school is Monday, August 2. The front gates will open at 7:45 a.m. and breakfast will begin at 8:15 a.m. If have questions feel welcomed to reach out via email (rholmes@balsz.org). I am here to serve.

    As always thank you for allowing Griffith to be your educational partner, and here is to an amazing school year!

    Sincerely,
    Richard B. Holmes, M.Ed., M.A.Ed.
    Principal
