Fourth and Fifth Grade Parents

On Tuesday, February 25th all 4th and 5th grade students received a yellow paper titled "Autodesk Kid's Community Consent Form". Chesterfield County Public Schools states that in order for elementary school students to utilize TinkerCad, which is an online 3D-printing program, they must have signed consent from a parent. Starting in March, students will work in STEAM class to learn how to build models in TinkerCad and print from our 3D-printers, but only if this form is signed and returned. Please make sure you have reviewed this paperwork with your child and return it to their homeroom teacher.

Together We: Learn, Grow, Lead

Grange Hall Families,

The Grange Hall Bull Dog Fun Run fundraising is underway and we've had an amazing time! We are currently 45% of the way towards are school goal! Can we make it by our run next Thursday?

To help prepare for the #FunRun, students now have a WEEKEND CHALLENGE! If a student receives a total of $2 per lap in new pledges (or $60 in flat donations) over the weekend, they’ll receive a special #Boosterthon prize! Enter those pledges on FUNRUN.COM to qualify.

On Friday afternoon, I had the opportunity to participate in a celebration for one of our bus drivers, Mrs. C, route 212! Several GHES students and their families nominated Mrs. C for a monthly contest sponsored by www.gohappylabs.com. Mrs. C was the winner for the month of February. Our students and families met Mrs. C at the stop on Friday afternoon with cards, balloons & gifts. Thank you for being an example of the importance of spreading kindness to others!

It's time for our annual "March Into Resource" month where we come together as a school to showcase our Resource classes and show our school spirit. We will kick off tomorrow by wearing our favorite hats and reading! Please refer to the calendar linked below for further details.

Throughout March, help us celebrate why we are LUCKY to be Grange Hall Bulldogs! Click this link to share with us why you feel lucky, and your story could be featured on our school social media pages! #GHESProud #LearnGrowLead

With gratitude,

Mrs. Jones

Principal & Lead Learner

Kindergarten Online Registration is OPEN!

If you are a family of a rising kindergarten student or know of a family who will be sending a child to kindergarten during the 2020-21 school year, it’s time to start thinking about kindergarten registration.

Great news! We’ve got an opportunity to save some time on April 16, which is Kindergarten Registration Day at every elementary school in Chesterfield County.

Visit https://mychesterfieldschools.com/family-and-community-engagement/preparing-for-school/student-registration/kindergarten-registration/ and preregister for kindergarten today. Doing so should cut in half any wait time on Kindergarten Registration Day.

Please remember to share this message with any family you know who has a rising kindergarten student!
