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

  • Message from the Superintendent

    It is with mixed emotions that I write to you today. It has been my honor and privilege to serve the students, staff, and community of the Iowa City Community School District for the past decade. As I look back on the past ten years, I am very proud to have been a part of a team that has done so much for our children. I genuinely feel that the district is set up for success for years to come. I also feel confident that this is a good time to consider a transition both professionally and personally. It is with all this in mind that I have shared with the Board that I will be moving on at the end of my current contract, June 30, 2021.

  • Message to the Community

    As we welcome students back for the new school year, we would like to take a moment to remind families of the commitment to equity and inclusion that the Iowa City Community School District holds. As efforts are being made by the federal government to crack down on immigrants and refugees in the United States, our responsibility to provide a safe, secure, and nurturing environment for all of our students to participate in their education becomes more important than ever.
