Principal's Message


Welcome to Grand Prairie Elementary School, known affectionately to all who know us simply as GPE.  We are pleased that you have taken the time to visit our new website. Our hope is that you find our website to be user-friendly, and after your visit, you will have a good idea of all we have to offer.


Grand Prairie Elementary School is a wonderful place for students from diverse backgrounds to grow educationally, get involved, and have a meaningful elementary school experience.   We strive to create an environment where each and every student is given the attention necessary to achieve his/her individual success.


Grand Prairie Elementary School is committed to academic excellence. Together with our families and the community, the staff and students of GPE work toward clearly focused educational, personal, and social goals. Parents are strongly encouraged to become involved in the school. When parents attend school functions, they demonstrate to their children that they value school and education. Attending events such as Back-to-School Night, Open House, Math Night, Literacy Night, and attending parent/teacher conferences are all important ways that parents learn about what’s going on at school.


As always, if you have questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Go Panthers!
