Dear Grimes Families,
Welcome to the 2019-20 school year. I am thrilled to be entering my fourth year as principal of this great school. I look forward to working with you to help your child reach even higher heights.
The Grimes school community made great progress last year. I have enjoyed sharing this success with all of you at our Back to School Night, during our record-breaking Dad’s Bring Your Kids to School Day, and on a daily basis here at the school. I cannot thank you enough for all of your help and support. Your girls and boys are well on their way to reaching their goals – but we are not there yet. We can soar even higher as a school community.
At Grimes, we believe that families, staff members, and community members must work together as partners to ensure that each of our students develops and thrives. Our talented and dedicated teachers and staff members work hard to meet the academic, social, and emotional needs of our girls and boys.
As always, feel free to call me at (914) 665-5025 or email me at Evangunten@mtvernoncsd.org with any questions or concerns.
I look forward to working with you on our journey to excellence.
Erik Van Gunten
