Caught Being Good Campaign!

There are some exciting festivities going on in the classrooms all during the month of December. We are encouraging students to put forth their best each day and to make every day count. The next few weeks we are going to watch the students closely for model behavior so we can reward them when they are "Caught Being Good"! As we bombard them with Wildcat Tickets and other classroom rewards, they will earn the privilege of getting to attend the exciting events!

School Pledge!

Speaking of caught being good, did you know that we now have a school pledge that we recite every morning at Grandview? Here it is:

Today, I promise to be safe, make good choices, be thoughtful, considerate, and ready to learn. I am proud to behave the Wildcat Way!
