Welcome to Grant Elementary School!
Grant has a long standing tradition of excellence dating back to 1910.
The building remains an integral part of the Wausau School District.
A major addition and renovation of the school building
and grounds occurred in 2000.
Continued improvements to the physical plant allow us
to continue our strong tradition of providing
a variety of programs designed to benefit all students.
Diversity is appreciated and individual learning needs are consistently met.
The Grant School student population includes students
with limited English Proficiency, special education needs,
and those with exceptional abilities.
Our dedicated and caring staff collaborate
to meet the needs of all of our learners at Grant.
We believe in providing a safe and innovative environment
that supports the whole child.
It is my honor to be able to serve as the Grant Elementary Principal.
I look forward to partnering with families, students, staff,
and the community to offer an enriching educational experience at Grant.

Mrs. Colleen Berkhahn
