Principal Welcome Message

Thomasina Rogers

Greetings, and a warm welcome to our new and returning Grizzly families!


Our school is part of a wonderful community that supports district initiatives: (1) ensuring equity; (2) increasing student engagement; (3) improving reading achievement.  In partnership with families, our team has worked hard to close opportunity gaps for each student through positive behavior interventions and supports throughout the day.  How do we accomplish this?

  • certified, trauma-informed school 
  • creating classroom-family where the most important relationship (between teacher-student) is fostered
  • collecting/analyzing data and collaboration
  • targeted, small group instruction for every child, based on data
  • ongoing, research-based professional development for continuous improvement 


Our Mission/Vision

Green Mountain Elementary is a safe and nurturing environment that meets students’ academic, behavioral, and social-emotional needs so that everyone can be successful . 


Green Mountain is a place where ALL students are successful in a variety of ways.  We support family work schedules through YKids childcare, and we support students’ interests and developing talents via clubs and activities during and outside of the school day.  We are a Future Ready School where all students have access to 1:1 chromebook devices for a blended-learning environment. Most importantly, our team is highly qualified and adept at  creating and sustaining authentic relationships with kids that inspire them to set and attain personal goals.  


We encourage students to be empathetic problem-solvers, and we also encourage kids to advocate for themselves and others.  All members of our schoolhouse are expected to care for our facility -- it’s our family home Monday-Friday, and beautiful spaces leads to beautiful minds learning!


GM Grizzlies are READY to LEARN when they are...

  • Respectful
  • Responsible
  • Safe (actions & words)


Stay connected with us!  Check your child’s backpack each day, review weekly GM Enews emails, and ‘follow’ us on Facebook (@GreenMountainElementary) and Twitter (@GMPrincipal1).


Your commitment and partnership for student success is paramount.  TOGETHER, we can help ALL students achieve their fullest potential. Thank you for allowing us to make a positive impact your child’s future.  We are #GMGrizzlyStrong!


Warmest regards,

Thomasina Rogers, Principal
