A Message From the Principal



    Dr. Tracy Pickett

    Welcome to a new school year at The Grove!  We are incredibly excited about what the 2022-2023 school year will bring for our students and parents.  This year hopefully will begin with some normalcy and filled with golden opportunities for all of our students to excel in many areas.  As we begin this school year, we pledge to our students and parents that this will be a wonderful year of engaging, meaningful and rigorous work in our classrooms.  There will be exciting school activities, parental involvement opportunities, programs, and events that we will have at The Grove!

    During this 2022-2023 school year, the faculty and staff will continue to build upon and refine our foundation of best practices and we will continue to be leaders in transforming lives through education by empowering all students to reach their potential and dreams.  We will continue to be a uniform school and we ask that you send your child to school wearing the school uniform Monday-Thursday with Friday being a “Free-Choice” day for students.  The attire for all field trips will be the school uniform.

    This year we are “Forging Forward towards Excellence”.  Please make sure that you are working with your child at home on the basic reading, writing, and math skills.  If you need books for students to read, workbooks or work packets for students to complete at home, please contact the school.

    We look forward to a very positive and productive year together!   We extend a special, yearlong invitation to our parents to join us at school activities and events whenever you can.  Please sign up to join the Parent-Teacher Association (PTA) and the School Improvement Council (SIC).  These organizations help to ensure that we are providing a high quality education to our students.  We want, need, and value your involvement and support in your child’s education! 

    Thank you.
