Together We: Learn, Grow, Lead

Grange Hall Families,


The Grange Hall Bull Dog Fun Run is kicking off in just 3 weeks! This year, we’re raising funds for educational resources, and we need your help! Watch the video below to learn about how our upcoming #boosterthon fundraiser works.


We would like to welcome Mrs. Debra Franklin to our Grange Hall faculty. Mrs. Franklin is joining our fifth grade team and will be serving those students who had Ms. Burns. We would also like to congratulate Ms. Burns as she joins our admin team serving as our Dean of Students at Grange Hall. Ms. Burns got married in January and her new name is Mrs. Atkinson!


Old Business:

  • Valentine's Day - we do allow students to exchange Valentine's on Feb. 14. Non-food items such as pencils, stickers, etc. are allowed. Class lists will be shared by your child's teacher.
  • The Office of Family and Community Engagement is hosting a Middle School Transition Fair on February 20, between 6:30 p.m. and 8:15 p.m at CTC@Hull St. This fair is for families navigating into and through the middle school years. A keynote presentation and breakout sessions will be the format. Dr. David Elena will deliver the keynote based on his experiences as a school principal, administrator, teacher and father and share insights and information into the ever-changing adolescent mind. Doors will open at 6:00 p.m. to provide attendees time to visit resource and vendor tables and the program will begin at 6:30 p.m. with a keynote presentation, followed by a choice of two breakout sessions. Breakout sessions are designed for families entering sixth grade and current middle school students; recognizing the social, emotional, and physical changes in students; fostering responsible technology habits and Internet safety; and tips on heading to high school, including information on leveling, and specialty centers.


With gratitude,

Mrs. Jones

Principal & Lead Learner

The 2nd chance Boosterthon family store is now open.
