• Welcome to Grafton Village Elementary School's

    Literacy webpage!

    Thank you for visiting our site to access information and resources to support your Grizzly.  My name is Jennifer Raybold and I have the privilege of serving our school as the Reading Specialist.  My responsibility is to ensure that high quality learning experiences in oral communication, reading, writing, and research engage your student on a daily basis.  We work collaboratively at GVES to implement intentional lessons to ensure each student expands their acquisition and application of strategies and skills required to navigate text across content areas.  Your partnership on this journey is essential to its impact.
