WELCOME TO GRANT
Grant Elementary School is located in the south-central part of Fremont, Nebraska, and serves students from Preschool through 4th Grade. It is a school-wide Title I building. Programs offered to our 140 students include Title I, Reading Recovery, and Special Education. The staff includes 7 classroom teachers, a special education teacher, a School Psychologist/Counselor, and a Reading Specialist. In addition to classroom instruction, specialists provide students with education in the content areas of Art, Media, Music and Physical Education. We are a small but mighty school community!
The PTA is very active in supporting our school. Grant Elementary PTA has been certified by the National PTA as a Parent Involvement School of Excellence. We encourage all of our parents to join the Grant PTA and participate in the community events they put together all year long.
At Grant, we implement Positive Behavior Intervention Supports (PBiS) to establish and maintain a safe and effective school environment that maximizes academic achievement and behavioral competence of all students. Students work to S.O.A.R. every day in order to become life-long learners. Grant students are Safe, Ongoing learners, who Act Responsibly and Respect themselves and others.
Our school is engaged in a partnership with Midland University in which student teachers, field based students, and practicum students have the opportunity to learn the skills required to become a teacher and receive instruction within our building. With the addition of Midland students, Grant students gain an even more personalized education. We also offer breakfast and lunch programs, as well as the 21st Century Community Learning Center, an after school program. The mission of the after school program is to provide youth opportunities to develop intellectually, socially, emotionally, and physically. All of these opportunities allow Grant Elementary students the chance to grow. At Grant Elementary, we are all learners, and together we grow every day.
Our doors are open, and we welcome family and community members to visit us and hear about the great things happening at our school!
