Attention Student Council
This wonderful secretary was caught in action! Filing can be an unpleasant task, but she is handling this, along with the paparazzi, with a smile. Thank you Mrs. B for all you do!
Lost & Found
The coats, and a pair of tennis shoes, are hanging out in the lost of found. Cold weather still ahead, may want to check and see if your student hasn't left a coat behind!
What do you do...
...when you need a little break from learning and it is cold or wet outside? Watch a funny movie! As entertaining as it is, we know these Pre-K students would rather be running around the playground. Spring will be here soon little ones!
Lost & Found
Your child has six minutes.
Deadline to register to vote in March primary is February 5th.
Project Celebration 2018
Project Celebration also sponsors, or participates in, educational presentations about the dangers of driving under the influence, underage drinking, texting while driving, and the long term effects of drug use.
Why all the bother each year? To ensure Seniors have a safe, drug free prom or graduation night. Through education and dedication, students and parents at Granger High school pull together to make cherished memories.
Great job Seniors and Parents.

The end is near...
...of the school year is, that is. Students & Parents: Please be sure you (your student) do not have any unfulfilled obligations. It's not nagging, really. It is a gentle reminder to avoid unnecessary surprises.
Possible obligations: laptop insurance, bills carried over from last year, lunch bill, lost books or other borrowed items, FCCLA fees, club dues, athletic dues. Your understanding is appreciated.
