Welcome to Graniteville Elementary! I am super excited to introduce myself. I am Michelle Padgett, the principal of Graniteville Elementary. I have been the principal of Graniteville Elementary since we were established in August of 2019. I come to you from Leavelle McCampbell Middle School where I was the principal for three years and Gloverville Elementary where I was the principal for seven years. Before that, I was an assistant principal and curriculum coordinator for three years and a teacher for 11 years. When I learned that we would be opening a new school in our community, I could not resist the opportunity to be a part of starting something new here in Graniteville. We have the very special opportunity to write history in Graniteville and to create a place that is unlike any other for our children to learn and grow. As a parent, your involvement in our school will be essential.
This year our school theme is "Find Your Greatness". We want to see all of students and staff find their greatness by committing to embrace a growth mindset and pursue their personal best. As parents, you will have many opportunities to be involved in Graniteville as we partner together in Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) and School Improvement Council (SIC). Our partnership and your involvement will be cornerstones of the success of our school.
I look forward to seeing you soon! Please be on the look-out for more information about Graniteville Elementary on our website at https://www.acpsd.net/GVES. Please also follow us on Twitter @GVES_Gators and on Facebook.
In service to children,
