Ridgy News!

Grove Upper Elementary now has a school newspaper!! As part of a GATE assignment, Abigail Byers and Leah Thompson wanted to create a newspaper specific for GUE. It took them a few months to recruit a staff, plan and publish the first paper, but they did it! The first edition was released for sale in March. We are so excited about this opportunity for our students. Thank you to Abigail and Leah for leaving a lasting legacy at GUE and thank you to Mrs. LuAnn DuBois for sponsoring Ridgy News!

It's time for March Madness!! Book March Madness that is! This year our students are reading books from different genres and voting for their favorites! Next week we will have our winner! We can wait to see which is our student's favorite book!


CLAWS is the positive behavior program at GUE. Each week students caught exhibiting outstanding character are awarded CLAWS tickets. They are given candy and entered into a drawing. Each week 12 students are drawn to spin the prize wheel and get prizes ranging from the prize box to something from our school store. Congratulations to this week's winners!

Mrs. (Spychalski) Ross has worked hard to create a fun and innovative fine arts curriculum this year! During March all three grade levels made paper mache Easter eggs. She is a brave woman and the kids loved it! Even our 6th graders still love getting their hands dirty to create! #kidsarekindofabigdealaroundhere
