January 2021 - Grant Community School E-Newsletter
Message from the Principal
According to the message from Governor Brown in December, districts across the state now have the flexibility of bringing back students to in-person blended learning. We want to assure you that we are putting plans in place to do so, but we are still a little ways out. Please continue to be patient with us while we navigate all of these decisions. We want the best for your student(s) and our staff and will communicate with you as soon as we are able to bring our students back. We truly miss them and know that CDL has not been easy. We appreciate you! In the meantime, I urge you to stay connected to our Facebook Page, YouTube Channel, Learning Platforms and our Newsletters.

OBOB- Battle of the Books
Mrs. Zavala is running the annual Oregon Battle of the Books at Grant. OBOB will be happening from now until March 17th. There will be no regional battle this year, but we will announce the school champion team at the March Grizzly Pride Assembly.
She will be using a Zoom meeting to run all of the OBOB battles and meetings. Students interested will need to be in grades 3 -5 and contact Mrs. Zavala.
Information about the titles can be found on the Library Media site: https://sites.google.com/salkeiz.k12.or.us/grant-library
Third grade battles will be held Tuesdays and Thursdays at 12:00-12:25.
Fourth and Fifth grade battles will be held Wednesdays and Fridays at 12:00-12:25.
This week, all students who are participating will meet at their scheduled time, but starting next week, the battles begin. When the battles begin, students only need to come if their team is battling. Mrs. Zavala will send out the schedules to 3rd-5th grade teachers and will also be emailing students directly.
