Grafenwoehr ES

Principal's Corner

It's a great time to be a Grafenwoehr Grizzly!

On behalf of Graffy the Grizzly and myself, I want to extend a sincere welcome to all students and families. Nestled in this rural area of Bavaria is the best school in DoDEA. Educating American students since 1946, Grafenwoehr Elementary School prides itself on delivering a high quality educational program while familiarizing ourselves with German customs.

One of the best aspects of the school is the strong sense of community. We are thankful for a strong PTA and all of the support they provide the school. Throughout the school year, there will be opportunities for students to enrich their learning, become familiar with the German community, and to share experiences in fellowship with families.

We are committed to a 21st century instructional program. As such, I am confident that every child will be challenged to extend their learning in a safe environment while at GES. Through excellence in the classroom, campus and community, it is my goal for each student and family who leaves our school to look back and proclaim that Grafenwoehr Elementary School was the best school ever.

Reminding everyone to be a STAR every day, everywhere...

Have a great Grafenwoehr Grizzly Day!
