Welcome to Grant Elementary. I am Patrick Neils and I am honored to be the principal. I grew up in Sheboygan, graduating from South High in 2001. After graduation, I went to Ball State University in Indiana to get my teaching degree. It was there that I met my amazing wife Kela. We have 2 beautiful daughters, Grace and Faith. As a family, we enjoy spending time in the great outdoors, playing board games and reading.
Grant has an outstanding and dedicated staff. I have the privilege to work side by side with them to serve the students and families of the Grant School Family. We take great joy in celebrating the accomplishments of our students no matter how big or small and continue to find ways to help with every child’s individual needs.
Here at Grant we look to partner with families to help support all of our students. The responsibility and calling to work at Grant is something that the entire staff takes to heart. This can be seen through our adult member of the Grant School Family pledge:
“I am an adult member of the Grant School Family. I understand that my actions, words, and attitudes have a powerful impact on the development of the children in my life. It is my job to set an example of kindness, self-control, honesty, respect, and responsibility. It is my job to teach the life skills that children need in order to be successful adults. I am part of the Grant School Family”
If we can help you in any way, or if you have any questions or concerns, please let us know.

Assessment is used to monitor student progress. In the classrooms, teachers provide a variety of experiences that will help students practice the skills necessary to help them learn and apply their knowledge in order to demonstrate their understanding.
There are a variety of assessments that are used in the district in order to monitor the progress of individual students, track student growth, and evaluate the success of the school and district. Some of these assessments are required by the state, others are part of district efforts to monitor and evaluate progress.
In all cases, assessment results are used by teachers, schools and the district as part of an established protocol of continuous improvement. Individual student needs are recognized and evaluated. Student growth is compared to expected growth and districtwide growth is measured to evaluate successes and plan for the future.
