It’s that time of year! In East Grand School District (Winter Park, Fraser, Granby, Grand Lake, & Hot Sulphur Springs) students start the 2017-2018 school year Monday, August 28th. As a former teacher, I commend teachers for their effort and dedication in preparing for the year and wish students’ their best year yet!
Here in East Grand School District there is a lot to celebrate! In 2016 Fraser Valley Elementary earned the John Irwin School of Excellence Award, and the Governor’s Distinguished Improvement Award for student growth. The District overall is accredited and earned an ELPA Award. So, if you’re thinking about moving to the Winter Park or Fraser area with your family to enjoy amazing skiing this winter, rest assured, your children will be in an excellent school district!
