Military Families

Welcome to the Grassfield Elementary community! With over 40% our school community being military connected, we pride ourselves on extending a warm welcome to all of our new families – especially military families who sacrifice so much for our country. Included on this page are some resources that are specifically geared towards helping our military families’ transitions both in and out of Grassfield Elementary as smoothly as possible. Additionally, we have included some resources to help our military families with the unique challenges they face daily. Please do not hesitate to reach out to me or our school guidance counselors should there be any additional ways we can support your child or your family. As always – It’s a GREAT day to be a Gator!!!
