A Weekly Look at Grant Elementary School & the Grant PTA
Week of October 15, 2019
Dear Grant Community,
This Friday, the Grant Jogathon will bring our students out to get some exercise and unite in school spirit. This event is one of the biggest fundraisers of the year and we count on the PTA funding for special programs, field trips and so much more. I want to thank all of our Grant families for the work fundraising on behalf of Grant and volunteering at the Jogathon this Friday. It means so much. When we are working together to make Grant better it really shows off one of the many reasons our school is something special.

A packet for cash donations was also sent home.

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.
