A Message from GHES New Principal Tracie Baughn

Dear Students and Parents/Guardians;

Welcome to Greeley Hill Elementary School. Thank you for entrusting us with your children’s education. Our goals are to provide a rigorous curriculum that rivals that of any school and to forge a solid partnership with parents and community members. We take our responsibility to you and your children seriously; you are why we are here.

As the principal, I encourage you to be an active participant in educating our youth.  There will be several opportunities for you to become involved in our everyday activities or special occasions. As a young school, we have a lot of growing to do and want you to be a part of our growth. Alone, each of us is limited; together we can accomplish anything!

At home, you are encouraged to read with your children daily and to make the most of the teachable moments that come up. You are their first and most constant teachers.

I look forward to getting to know each of you, discussing ways to improve our schools and add to the learning experiences for your children.

Tracie Baughn
