First Day of School

Dear Grafton and Athens Families,

Ready for a great year at Grafton Elementary School?  The staff are so very excited to see each student in a few weeks!  I could not be more happy to begin the year as a Grafton Panther! We will have quite a few new faces here at GES.  Please join me in welcoming:

Angela Cartier is our new 3/4 multiage teacher. Angela is new to GES, but is not new to teaching.  She has taught both 3rd and 4th grade in Holyoke Massachusetts.

Kimberlee Abrams is our new 5th grade teacher.  Kim is new to GES but not new to our supervisory union.  She taught 5th grade last year at Westminster Center School.

Scott Febbie is our new Art teacher.  He will be teaching at GES on Mondays and is excited to start creating with our students!

Liz Bourne is joining us as our new librarian.  She may be new to GES, but has thirty years experience as a librarian at Westminster Center School.

Marjie is joining us as our new special educator.  Margie is new to GES, but is not new to special education or our supervisory union, joining us from Central Elementary.

  • Classroom walkthrough will be Tuesday, August 28th from 2:00-3:00.  Feel free to check out where your classroom will be and meet your new teacher.
