From the Desk of Jaclyn Guerra

There is some pretty great news I'd like to share.

Kelly Tidwell set up a GoFund me page to help us raise money for art supplies. Through the help of the community and friends of Granger, we were able to raise over $500. I wanted to give a BIG thank you to everyone that donated, for their support and love. The Granger ISD Art Department is so very grateful for their help.
