Hi Grange Hall families! My name is Courtney Jones and I am looking forward to my fifth year serving as the principal at Grange Hall Elementary School! My husband Greg and I have two children, Ian (13) and Ainsleigh (10). I am starting my 20th year in education with former experiences as a 2nd, 4th, and 5th grade teacher, gifted resource teacher, and assistant principal. I am a HUGE New England Patriots and Boston Red Sox fan! I am a very passionate educator that truly believes that ALL students can succeed through the development of a safe, engaging learning environment. My personal mission that I have developed as lead learner of GHES is to help to create a school that students, teachers and families are beating down the doors to get in each day instead of out. I look forward to the chance to meet and work with every one of you! Thank you so much for all you do as a partner in your child’s education!
