Students at Granby Elementary have made excellent strides to improve school-wide academic and behavior performances.
During a recent school assembly, Principal Heather Witter shared data that showed 94 percent of the student body had – at most – just one major referral since the beginning of the 2016-2017 school year.
Because the three other Fulton City School District elementary schools edged out Granby in that category, Witter encouraged all students to set a goal to be referral-free for the remainder of the school year.
Students also celebrated the news that 85 percent of the Granby Gators have attended school at least 90 percent of the time.
Witter told students that increased school attendance will also lead to increased academic success.
Several students said they were excited to work toward that goal after Witter revealed Granby trailed the other Fulton elementary schools in attendance goals.
Witter also honored several students who exhibited tolerance throughout the month of January.
Dozens of students received a certificate of recognition and praise from classmates and staff members.
