Disaster Preparedness Shed Clean Up, Fri., 10/16 - Seeking extra hands

The school has a supply of necessary items in the case of emergency, however it is time to switch out the old and expired and restock. We could use several volunteers to help with the clean out this Friday, October 16th, from 3 - 5 pm. If you can make it to help, just come to the shed this Friday after school. If you don’t know where the shed is, just go to the office and they can direct you. Thank you!

Parents of 4th-6th graders received the CAASPP reports in the mail last week. This guide helps you understand the report. Please see Mrs. Todd if you have questions. CAASSP replaced the CST (STAR) test. 3rd-8th graders take this assessment.

Vacations and independent study

At Grant School, we value student education. When your student is not in the classroom, it is impossible for the teacher to recreate that learning environment for your student. We encourage parents to use the built-in vacation times throughout the school year to take those valuable family vacations.

However, we understand that this is not always possible. If your student is going to be gone for 5 or more days, please request an independent study packet. This packet will help your student keep up with the class and return feeling confident about their learning. This packet must be requested at least 5 school days before you leave. This gives teachers time to provide meaningful work for your student.

If you have any questions, please see Mrs. Todd.
