Dear Clinton-Massie Elementary School Family & Friends,
Greetings! By way of brief introduction, my name is Greg Grove and I am the new Elementary School Principal effective January 1, 2013. My predecessor, Mrs. Hella Scott has chosen to retire in order to spend more time with her family. I know that she will miss the CMES Staff and wonderful students very much. I hope and expect that Mrs. Scott will visit us from time to time and check in on us. I come to this position after having served as the High School Assistant Principal for 7 years, and Middle School Principal for 4 ½ years. Although I will miss the Middle School Staff and students greatly, please know that I have rededicated myself to the Elementary School community, staff, and students. I am truly humbled and honored to have been given this wonderful opportunity by our School Board Members and Superintendent. I very much look forward to this challenge and promise to do my best to maintain the excellent reputation our Elementary School so richly deserves.
Thank you for taking time to review this letter, our website, and for your support. We are honored that you have entrusted us with your child’s education; we take this responsibility very seriously and are fully committed your child’s success while in our Elementary School.
