What's Happening At Gratz Brown This Month??

Spartans on the Move!!

It is time for our Wellness Warriors to get moving! The weather is turning warmer and we need to get our running shoes on!

Students participating in the Spartans on the Move program will need to be dropped off by 7:45 a.m.. If students arrive after 7:50, the doors will be locked and the students will need to be in the drop offline as there will be no supervision until 8;05 when the doors open for school.

This program is in conjunction with our Wellness and Fitness Grant at GBE.

Parent Resources for You and Your student at HOME:


The above link is a resource that you can utilize at home, called Khan Academy, for all grade levels ranging from Kindergarten up to Secondary/High School in all subject areas. I encourage each of you to check this site out and use it when working with your students at home.
