Principal's Message

  • Ken Turnis I want to give a welcome to all of our future Christine Grant Elementary students and families. I am very honored to be the first principal of Christine Grant and look forward to working with you all in the creation of a positive learning community. The opportunities are endless as the establishment of traditions, celebrations, and culture within and beyond the walls of the school occur during this planning year and beyond.

    We will get to know each other on many levels as planning occurs over the next year and, of course, once the school is open.  During this next year, I will be assisting at both Garner Elementary and Penn Elementary. This will be terrific as I also will get to know many of our Christine Grant students and families! 

    Feel free to contact me with any questions. 

    Best,

    Ken Turnis, Principal

  • Making Up Missed School Time

    It goes without saying that this winter has delivered its fair share of inclement weather for our area. It has been quite some time since we have experienced a winter of this magnitude. With that being said, we understand that many of you have questions about how the multiple cancellations, late starts, and early dismissals will impact the end of the school year.
