Gray School continues to be a Level 1 CPS school!
Every person in the Gray School community makes this standard of excellence possible! Go Stallions!
Dear Gray School Parents and Community,
There is nothing more magical than to see the excitement of the winter holidays through the eyes of children. We are all so fortunate to have the wonderful Gray School children in our lives, whether they are our child, our student or our neighbor. Thank you, parents, for allowing us to partner with you in the education and care of your children. The education of your children is a calling that Gray School teachers and staff take personal pride in and one that we endeavor to do to the very best of our abilities.
As we move into our winter break, the Gray School teachers have taken great care to provide you with a list of activities that you can do with your child and that your child can do independently to keep their skills sharp and to keep them reading. Your child has been provided with the list of activities that will ask for your signature. Over the two-week break, please spend 30 minutes a day enjoying those activities with your child. On January 5th, 2015 when your child returns to school, please ensure that they return that paper to their teacher so they can receive the prize that they will have earned.
Shortly after we return from break our Gray School Stallions will begin testing. It is very important that they come back from break well rested and academically ready to do their very best. Read, read, read!!!
I and the Gray School teachers and staff wish all of our families and community members a safe and healthy holiday and a happy New Year.

The BFG Performs at Gray
On Friday, December 5, 2014, the third graders watched in excitement as the novel The BFG by Roald Dahl came to life through the theatrical works of The Cinema Academy. Third grade has read the novel The BFG over the last few weeks, and this culminating activity really helped our students to make meaningful learning connections. It was also wonderful to have some of our pen pals from Thorp Scholastic Academy join us on this marvelous day as they too are reading this novel in class. Third grade looks forward to continuing with our novel studies throughout the year in the hopes of continuing to encourage life long independent reading and learning. (Story by Mrs. Padilla.
