Weekly Update: May 26th, 2023 


Dear Grinnell-Newburg Board of Education, Staff, Families, and Friends:

Happy Friday!  Today we said goodbye to our students for summer break!   What a beautiful day filled with smiles and such joy, but each of us who work at Grinnell-Newburg School District also feel a little ache in our hearts.   We have grown over this school year with our students, made new friends, worked with new staff in some cases, and we are saying goodbye to staff who are seeking new adventures, opportunities, or moving closer to family.  It is hard to move on and begin a new chapter in our lives.   We wish everyone well!  We look forward to a wonderful restful break and we will be ready to gear up for this Fall to welcome our families back to school.  


This weekend we celebrate our seniors.   Tomorrow night is the Honors and Awards Nights that begin at 7:00 PM.   Sunday, the commencement ceremony will begin at 2:00.   We wish our 2023 graduates all the best as they head off into many different directions filled with opportunities.  


Happy Memorial Day!  Monday,May 29, 2023 the offices and schools in the school district will be closed.    Staff will return for May 30 and May 31 for PD and check out.   Summer training begins June 1 for elementary staff to learn the new math curriculum.   Many staff members will be working during the month of June on curriculum.   


Summer Slick will begin on June 5 for students who are participating.  Summer Slick will be held at Davis Elementary School.

23-24 School Registration


The 2023- 2024 Online Registration is now open. Every student needs to complete online registration each year. This ensures that all information in Infinite Campus is up to date, especially in case of an emergency.


For current families, please log in to your parent portal account, select the 2023-2024 year, and follow the prompts. If you are having issues logging into your account, please reach out to me at katie.osborn@grinnell.k12.org.


For New Families or students who are not currently enrolled in the district, click HERE.


Parents will want to select New Student Registration and then select 2023-2024. The first series of questions will ask for the parent's first name, last name, email, confirm email, enter the "I'm not a robot code," and a separate link will be sent to the email provided. That link is the Infinite Campus link and official registration. Parents will not need an activation code. If asked for one before starting, they selected the incorrect area and will need to select NEW STUDENT REGISTRATION.
