Message from Principal

  • Dear Parents and Guardians,

    It takes a strong school community to truly educate a child.  At Grimes, we believe that parents, guardians, 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 work hard to meet the academic, social and emotional needs of our girls and boys.           

    We invite you to become active here at Grimes.  We have monthly PTA meetings during which we discuss important matters and bring changes to the school. There are always volunteering opportunities.  Please let us know what you would like to bring to the Grimes community and we will help you do this. 

    We are excited about the new school website.  We now have a monthly calendar, classroom pages and links to our Super Kids movies and Staff Shout Outs. More than ever, we will be able to communicate with our parents and families about all the great things happening at Grimes.  

    As always, feel free to call me at (914) 665-5025 or email me at with any questions or concerns.

    I look forward to working with you on our journey to excellence.     

    Erik Van Gunten
