Good Afternoon Grant Gator Families,


We had a great week at Grant Elementary. Looking forward to an even better week next week. I wanted to let you know that Ms. Mulkiten is on intermittent leave to care for a family member. She will be at Grant Elementary on Mondays and Tuesdays. Just wanted to make you aware. Please let me know if you have any questions.


Have a wonderful weekend!

Competitive Edge Video and Sign-up for Kindergarten Families

The deadline to sign up for the Competitive Edge Savings Program is fast approaching!

Kindergarten families -- be sure to sign up for this FREE savings program offered by the LPS Education Foundation by Feb. 1! This is a savings account set up through the Michigan Education Savings Program. Families do not invest a dime, but the Foundation starts the account with seed funds, which grow over the course of the student's educational career in LPS. Upon graduation from an LPS school, the student receives a check from the Foundation to assist with future college or trade school plans.

This opportunity is only for current kindergarten students.

See links for further information!

DISTRICT EMAIL

Good Afternoon LPS Families,


We have great news for LPS students who are in need of a connected mobile device for the purpose of completing school work at home. Thanks to a grant from the FCC Emergency Connectivity Fund, we are able to provide Chromebooks for students who do not currently have the devices they need to access classroom content from home.


These Chromebooks are configured to run only with a Livonia Public Schools email address and will allow students to access digital textbooks, Google Classrooms and educational resources that are used by our schools and teachers.


Parent/guardians can complete the form below to request a district Chromebook for your student to use at home. Parents/guardians should carefully read the agreement in the form to be sure you understand and agree to all conditions of this program. These devices are to remain at home. Students do not need to bring the devices to school. If you have multiple students in the district requiring a device, please complete the form for each student.


Once we have established the number of families who are in need of a Chromebook, we will contact you with the location and dates for pick up.


Thank you!
