A Weekly Look at Grant Elementary School & the Grant PTA
Week of April 1, 2019
A NOTE FROM PRINCIPAL GREY:
That is why this year's Fund-a-Need is so critical. Bringing more engineering, collaboration, creativity, and critical thinking to our students is something we can all support. I, along with the Grant PTA, am asking you to help us fund the role of a Science Coordinator for Grant Elementary School. The more money we raise, the longer we can keep this new program rolling!
There will be a great opportunity to donate to this fund-a-need at the auction or if you can't make it, please consider donating HERE.
Thank you for your generosity and support,
Vote for Grant!
