A Weekly Look at Grant Elementary School & the Grant PTA
Week of November 12, 2019
A Message From Principal Grey
Dear Grant Community,
Our goal as educators is to support our students in every way that we can academically, socially and emotionally. Thank you for trusting us here at Grant to share in the education of your child. We know how important our role is and are looking forward to conferencing with you over the next two weeks!
Grant TIDE Meeting, 11/13
All are welcome at the TIDE meeting on Wednesday, November 13th from 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm in the Grant Library . TIDE (Team for Inclusivity, Diversity, and Equity) groups are forming at each PCS school to open up a dialogue about how we can ensure that each of our students, families and staff members feel welcome, acknowledged and safe on our campuses.
*Childcare will be provided.
Grant PTA Meeting, 11/14

Lost & Found
Look at all these nice jackets? Does anyone want them back?
How many jackets will you buy this year? Wonder where that cute one went? It's likely at Grant!
Stripes are probably here too :)
Grant Cares, Donation Drive Underway
The Grant Cares team is collecting gift cards in the office to help some of our Grant families that may find the upcoming holidays a financial struggle. To help ease the burden, they've placed a heart shaped box in the office for gift card donations. If you are in the position to help, they're looking for gift cards to Target, Chevron, Old Navy or Trader Joe's in small increments, like $20 to $25, so that they can spread your gifts out to different families. Thank you for your support.
Holiday See's Candy Fundraiser
Need some great gifts for the upcoming holidays or perhaps a little something to satisfy your own sweet tooth? Order Forms were sent home Friday for the See's Candy Holiday fundraiser. All orders are due December 2nd (right after returning from Thanksgiving break) and orders will be delivered December 13th. Perfect timing for gift giving.
