A Message from Mr. Paul Gillihan Principal

July 31, 2017

Dear Griffin Wildcats,

Welcome back to the start of an amazing year of learning here at Griffin.We have been busy all summer preparing for this day and have a lot of great things in store for everyone.

This year we will be CELEBRATING learning as we discover, invent, and explore new realms.We have assembled the best teaching staff around, and the majority of them have been in and out of Griffin all summer.  

Our custodial staff has been working tirelessly to get the building ready for you, and our award winning cafeteria staff are eager to see you each day.

If you are not following our PTSA and Foundation on Facebook and Twitter, please do so.They have been organizing, planning, and implementing our new "Give 2 Griffin" campaign.This year we want to do more teachers’ grants, purchase technology, as well as many more projects to enhance our learning environment.

We are excited to open our new FACS classroom – it has been many years since this course was offered at Griffin.   We also want to welcome back Health to our connections classes.

As we continue to grow, please be patient with us. We continue to have growing pains, but we strive hard to deliver the best service to you and your family. If you ever have any suggestions or concerns, please let me know.

We are all in this journey together, and I am just excited to set off on this phenomenal pathway to learning with you.

Principal, Griffin Middle School
