A Weekly Look at Grant Elementary School & the Grant PTA
Week of March 4, 2019
A Message from the Principal:
Dearest Grant Community,
I am so very proud to be a part of this school community and truly honored to be Ruby and Dante's principal. Thank you to the Avezedo family for your unimaginable strength and grace in the face of such a profound loss.

Grant VIP Parking Spot tickets will be sold Tuesday and Wednesday of next week (March 12th & 13th) before and after school in front of the office. The tickets are $50 each and there are only 50 of them, so your odds of winning are pretty darn good. Winner (selected at the auction - need not be present to win) gets a coveted prime spot in the Grant Staff Parking Lot for the 2019/2020 school year. Say Whaaat? First come first served! Good luck from the Grant PTA!
