PTA: Feed the Piggies DEADLINE - Tuesday, 11/20
Granville Academy had our first PTA meeting on October 25! The PTA is planning a fundraiser that will begin on November 5th and end on November 20 with the culminating activity of Dr. Wrenn kissing a pig or actually pigs! Students will bring in spare change to be collected in each classroom to raise the registration fees for K-12 Science Olympiad teams. Please be on the lookout for the cutest piggy banks in the classrooms to collect change and help us "feed the piggies".
Thank you to all who have already participated in this fun event!
Using Desmos calculator is an alternative to using the TI-84 calculator. Here is information on how to add and use this tool! Thank you to Mrs. Igims for creating and sharing this information.

We are halfway through the semester. We do not want any high school student to not earn credit. All 9-12 grade students who are earning below a 61 in any class will be contacted to attend an onsite help lab. You will report to the lab weekly until you are back on pace and passing. We want to provide you with the support you need now to pass and earn credit for the course!
