Dear Grasse Families and Community Members,
Welcome to John M. Grasse Elementary School, the home of the Bulldogs! I am delighted to welcome you to the 2021-2022 school year. Our school theme this year, I Am, You Are, WE ARE Somebody! continues our goal to increase awareness of diversity, equity, and inclusion, and to appreciate the uniqueness of each individual at J.M. Grasse.
This is my third year as the principal of this wonderful school. Prior to coming to Grasse, I taught high school and middle school science and computer science in New Jersey, Maryland, and Pennsylvania for a total of 8 years, before taking a break to raise my four children. When my youngest child was in middle school, I returned to the education world and eventually became a Curriculum Supervisor in Pennridge. After 11 years as a supervisor, I was honored to be chosen as the new principal of J.M. Grasse!
Of all the wonderful schools in Pennridge, Grasse has a very special place in my heart. My own four children attended Grasse from kindergarten through sixth grade. Like many of you, I was a classroom volunteer, homeroom mom, PTO member, and lunch room aide in the thirteen years that I had children attending Grasse. During these years I saw, firsthand, what makes Grasse such an amazing school - a dedicated and caring staff, enthusiastic children, engaged parents, and a supportive community.
I look forward to working together to make 2021-2022 a great year for the students at J.M. Grasse! Please feel free to contact me at any time if you have questions or concerns.
With Bulldog Pride,
