Thank You Granite Falls Community

The Granite Falls School District would like to give a big THANK YOU to voters!
The YES vote on the recent bond issue benefits our students and staff, as well as the entire community. The vote of confidence and support you have given us is truly appreciated. We will continue to work hard to keep your trust, improve student learning, and provide safe, secure facilities for our children.  We will be keeping you informed as progress is made on the renovations of the Granite Falls Middle School, district wide security and safety improvements and the construction of a covered grandstand to complete the stadium at the Granite Falls High School.
A special thank you goes to the Citizen’s Committee and the Committee Chair, Carl Cary, whom devoted hours and hours of time to ensure the successful election; and to Mike Trask, Brent Kirk, VonJentzen Productions, Steve Howell, Jeff Balentine, Carol Panagos, Richard Panagos, Melanie Freeman, Deon Freeman, Premier Realty, Kathy Silveira, Julie Dickson and the countless number of employees, parents and community members who volunteered time and resources to support the election. And of course, to each and every voter – we cannot thank you enough.

It’s because of all of you that we will build a future that is Granite Strong!
