What is Open House and when is it?
Open House is a reception (normally held in the evening a few days before the school year begins) during which parent/students are welcomed to attend! This opportunity gives parents/students the chance to find out who their teacher/teachers are, pick up the student's schedule, see the school building, map out where their classrooms are, drop off their school supplies, and get a quick overview of year's expectations/curriculum.
Glenn A. Duffy - Friday, August 11th. 3:30pm - 5:30pm.
Upper Elementary - Friday, August 11th. 3:30pm - 5:30pm.

I didn’t make it to the open house—how can I learn about my child’s teacher and other relevant info?
No problem! Just call your child’s respective building, and the office staff will provide you with all of the information you’ll need to know. Schedules can be picked up on the first day of school for middle and high school students.
Does Gravette School District offer after school care?
Yes! The 21st CCLC Program provides afterschool tutoring, homework help, learning, and enrichment time with a certified teacher. Parents need to fill out an application and attendance contract for their student(s) to take part. The program is offered to students in K-8th grade and is free!

What is the ABCSS Pre-K Program and how do I enroll?
The Arkansas Better Chance (ABC) program was created in 1991 to offer high quality early education services to children birth to five exhibiting developmental and socio-economic risk factors. In 2003, the Arkansas Legislature made a commitment to expand early childhood education to serve low-income three and four-year old children in areas at high risk for academic failure with high quality pre-k services. This expansion, known as the Arkansas Better Chance for School Success, has become the state pre-kindergarten program. To find out further information click here.

As your student goes to their different classes/extra circular courses throughout the first week, the teachers will assign them more supplies to purchase specific to those classes.

If you are unable to make it during the date and times listed below to pick up your child's technology for the school year, your child can pick up their chromebook the first day of school. Please note, it is mandatory that BOTH, you AND your child, sign a 1-1 technology device agreement before the technology department hands your child a chromebook.

What is google classroom and does my child's teacher (or teachers) have one?
Google Classroom is a suite of online tools that streamlines assignments, boost collaboration, and foster communication between students and teachers. Google Classroom allows teachers to set assignments, have work submitted by students, to mark, and to return graded papers in a digital format. Since Google Classroom is online-based, you can access it in some form from pretty much any device with a web browser. Not all of Gravette School District's teachers utilize Google Classroom, please inquire with your student's individual teacher for further information.
