• Principal's Message


    Principal-Mrs. Lisa Ruffieux

    Welcome back students!  I am so proud and fortunate to be a part of our Grafton Bethel Community!  GBE is very special to me as it was my first school in YCSD as an Assistant Principal over fifteen years ago.  Returning to Grafton Bethel is a true "homecoming" for me and fulfills my dream of once again being back in such a wonderful school community of life-long learners, educators, and community members. 

    This year is truly going to be something special. Grafton Bethel Elementary is going to be a place filled with laughter, passion, and learning.  We want each and every person that comes onto this school campus to know they are valued and that they hold tremendous worth.  We believe in fresh starts and new beginnings.  We believe in growth and potential. To our students, you are so important and we hope that every day you leave our building knowing how special you are and just how much potential you hold.  To our parents, you are just as important.  Bringing everyone together accomplishes success.  To our community, we know this is a team effort.  We know it will take an entire community coming together.  We invite our community to take place in the exciting upcoming year at Grafton Bethel. What our children learn today can transform tomorrow.

    I welcome the chance to get to know students and families.  Please don't hesitate to contact me should you have any questions.
