Red Out Day

Hello Grassy Creek families! First, let me thank everyone for their continued support of our annual Red Out Day and the American Heart Association. Unfortunately, due to a manufacturing error, the American Heart Association only sent Grassy Creek a few shirts in youth sizes with the majority of the shirts sent in adult sizes. Due to this error and lack of inventory, I will be returning all funds that have been sent in for shirts. Even though we are unable to purchase the shirts, this does not mean that our Red Out Day has to be cancelled. Instead, I am proposing that all students wear any red shirt in support of the American Heart Association at no cost on Friday, February 12th. I am terribly sorry to make this announcement and apologize for any extra hassle or disappointment this has caused our students looking forward to this. As always, thank you for your support and we look forward to seeing everyone in red on Friday, February 12th!

-Mr. Stillman
