We are so beyond grateful for our GR students, families and PTO for all of the hard work and fundraising efforts that were put into our 4th Annual Fun Run! The kids were beyond excited to receive all of their amazing prizes and Mrs. Bohlke’s class thoroughly enjoyed being able to silly string their teacher and their principal! #HappyFriday #GRrocks

We took #ThrowbackThursday to a whole new level today. The students may not have known what the decade was they were dressed as, but they sure looked great doing it! 😂 Be sure to finish out this week strong by dressing your students in their finest Waukee wear tomorrow for Spirit Day! #HomecomingWeek

Building a Positive Community

Grant Ragan embraces the Responsive Classroom approach to teaching. Responsive Classroom is a set of practices intended to create safe, joyful, and engaging classroom and school communities. The emphasis is on helping students develop their academic, social, and emotional skills in a learning environment that is developmentally responsive to their strengths and needs.  All staff operate from the core belief that in order to be successful in and out of school, students need to learn a set of social and emotional competencies – cooperation, assertiveness, responsibility, empathy, and self-control – and a set of academic competencies – academic mindset, perseverance, learning strategies, and academic behaviors.
