Lockdown drill

Today, the students had a lockdown drill. The teachers reviewed with students that we use this procedure to keep everyone safe. For example, if there was a water leak, or an animal on campus, we would use this to keep them safe. Please let me or their teacher know if you have any questions.

Thank you PTA!!

Our amazing PTA has been restocking the emergency buckets in the classrooms. Each of our classrooms has water, snacks, first aid items and a bathroom bucket in case of emergency. Each year, these are refreshed. Thank you volunteers for your work!

Lucky Strike Bowling Rescheduled

Thanks to an untimely power outage, our bowling event is rescheduled for Sunday, April 15th from 3-5pm. We are so looking forward to getting Grant boys out on the lanes. If you already registered for this event and can make the new date! Great! If you can't make it, you can contact to either get a refund or donate your money to PTA, if you didn't register but can make the new date - there are some extra forms in the office!
