Principal's Corner

General Myer Parents and Families, 



Welcome to the 2022-23 school year! We are excited to have your child be part of our amazing school community. We hope you have enjoyed your summer and are looking forward to the new school year. This year promises to be a year full of achievement, productivity, and growth for our new and returning students. Together, we will create a year of excellence for our students as we focus on student engagement, maintaining a positive school culture, and rigorous instruction through standards aligned lesson activities. 


We have such exciting news this year as GMES will add a STEM (Science-Technology-Engineering-Mathematics) class that will engage students in their continued interest in science. This class will replace the computer specials class. We plan to hold numerous family nights to learn more about the curriculum and learning activities that will be provided to our students. 


We also have received new flooring and student furniture all throughout the school classrooms. These changes will provide the optimal learning environment for our students so they can focus on hands-on learning while communicating and collaborating with each other. 


We will continue to move forward with our positive behavior implementation system of the General Myer 4 Bs. We expect every student to Be Kind, Be Respectful, Be Responsible, and Be Safe. We also expect all General Myer students to S.O.A.R. every day (Show respect, Own your actions, Accept differences, and Realize your potential). 


Our school mission is: Working together with our families and military community, we are dedicated to inspiring a love of learning where students grow to reach their fullest potential. 


We welcome new staff members, families, and partnerships that will be positive members of our amazing school community. Please feel free to contact us with any questions regarding volunteering opportunities. 


We look forward to working with each and every one of you this year. We invite and encourage our parents to partner with us and become active participants in your child’s education because your support is so important to their success! 


Once again, welcome back. Welcome to General Myer Elementary School, home of the Eagles, and home to students that are smart, strong, and amazing every day! 


Your Partner in Education, 


Dr. Sam Granillo, Principal
