George Long Elementary School supports the Kindergartners through 5th graders of the Grass Lake Community Schools District. The elementary building also houses the Little Warriors Pre-School and Daycare, which can be reached at 517-522-5650. Our school was extensively renovated and a new wing was added on in 2007. We enjoy large rooms, modern audio-visual equipment, and a cooperative staff committed to helping all of our students to succeed. Call us if you are interested in a tour of our building. We would love to see you!
ALL ORDERS MUST BE PRE-PAID and are DUE ON OCTOBER 28.
Elementary students will turn in their order form/payment to their teacher. Middle school and high school students will turn in their order form/payment to the main office in their respective building.
Fruit will be delivered in early December. Notification of the specific delivery date and time will be announced through school email.
Citrus fruit makes a welcome holiday gift for co-workers, and the 20 pound boxes offer substantial savings for families. Please check out the brochure for the various offerings at http://bit.ly/1xBJl5n. See any Grass Lake student to place an order.

Our First Annual Leadership Day was a huge success! Our guests were very impressed with our school, staff and our amazing student leaders. We are very proud of our students as they were able to show off their leadership skills. Our students helped decorate, greet adults, shared their academic and personal goals, and much more! We will hold a Leadership Day next school year and we would love to see even more guests attend.
Thank-you to our community for your support as this has been an amazing first year as a Leader in Me School!
