Pink Out!

The Graniteville School held a fundraiser to support Breast Cancer Awareness on Friday, October 14th.  Children and Staff members dressed in PINK to support Breast cancer.  All donations that we received were donated to the Program in Women's Oncology at Women and Infants Hospital.  These donations go directly to the women and their families.

Picture Day

Having Fun at Confreda Farms


The Graniteville PTO held a family event at Confreda Farms on Saturday, October 15th. Families were invited to pick pumpkins, and take a private hayride together around the farm. Children were able to see water reserves, and many growing vegetables on this farm that provide produce to many surrounding supermarkets.   While families were at the farm, they were able to enjoy the other attractions there: bouncy houses, corn maze, and refreshments were available for all to enjoy.

Principal's Message



It is with great excitement, that I inform you that Mayor Polisena has graciously donated a brand new outside play structure to our school.  The new structure will have a Rumble Seat Slide, a Wide Glide Slide, a Beanstalk climber, a solar climber, a post mount wheel, and a balcony with a telescope!  Along with this structure, a safe ground covering was purchased to protect our children from falls that so commonly occur outside in the play areas. This will be installed on the ground around the structure. 

We are so fortunate to have someone who puts our children first! Thank you Mayor Polisena!

 Thank you,


Maria Petronio-McAfee

Parent Pick-Ups and Drop Offs


  1. We are very cautious when releasing our students to parent/guardian/friend pick ups at the end of our school day.  Please be aware, that at any time, you may be asked to show a Driver's License if a staff member is not familiar with you, has not seen you before, or does not recognize you.  Please remind any new pick ups for your child, that the child will not be released to this person without proper identification!
  2. No Child will be released to an adult unless that adult's names is on the Emergency Card.
  3. Please remember to keep your Emergency Card up to date and accurate with the most current phone numbers and emergency contacts.
  4. In case you need to add or subtract a name from the Emergency Card, you must put this request in writing, prior to the pick up and send this request into school with your child.
  5. All parent drop offs/pick ups are in the front of the building at the red double doors in the Cafeteria.

As always, your child's safety is of utmost importance to us! Safety is our number 1 priority!
