Principal update

2018 Welcome back, Explorers!

Dear Robert Gray Explorers,

We are looking forward to a really great year at Robert Gray.

  • Our office opens to the public on Monday, August 20.
  • Our Supply Drop Off and Staff/Student Meet and Greet will be on  Monday, August 27 from 4:30 to 5:30.

Our staff has been busy taking classes and preparing their classrooms.  This next year Robert Gray, along with the rest of the Longview School District elementary schools will be implementing a new math program, Ready Math.  Each classroom teacher is currently involved in trainings to learn that new curriculum.

We look forward to another great year of improving our students’ reading and writing skills.  We are also looking forward to catching up with our students and learning about their summer adventures.

It’s going to be a terrific year for our Explorers.

Robert Gray (1755-1860) was an American explorer who had previously been in the Navy during the Revolutionary War. Gray sailed from Boston, Massachusetts in 1787 and traveled around Sougrayth America to the northwest coast of North America and on to China where he traded furs for tea. He began his journey with Captain John Kendrick in a sister ship. Gray continued west, and returned to Boston in 1790. Gray was the first American-
born in an America ship to circumnavigate the globe. In 1791, he led another expedition to the northwest coast on a ship called “Columbia.” In 1792, Gray sighted, named and sailed up the Columbia River in Oregon, and also explored Gray’s Harbor in what is now the state of Washington. Because of Gray’s exploration, the United States now laid claim to the Oregon Territory. Gray again continued westwards and circumnavigated the glob, returning to Boston in 1793.
Robert Gray Elementary School was build in 1955. It was remodeled in 1997.

That’s the Explorer spirit here at Robert Gray!
