The inside of Groton Area Elementary School is starting to look like a school again. The custodians are finishing up with all of their waxing and cleaning. The teachers are putting their final touches on their classrooms and getting textbooks and other materials organized. I know that our lower elementary teachers have sent out welcome letters to their students. Everyone is gearing up for the first day of school next Wednesday, August 26th. I have even seen our sports teams practicing in anticipation of our first games. It is an exciting time. I am looking forward to seeing everyone and getting the schoolyear started. Go Tigers!!
