While you are at it...

The Granger City Wide Garage Sale is Nov. 17th from 8am-3pm. When you are busy cleaning out your closet, please take a minute to set aside a few apparel items in good shape (for all ages, sizes, and seasons) to donate to the Clothes Bank for GISD students and Granger residents. Then, on Saturday, Dec. 8th, come to the old gym and find new ones to replace it! Free shopping to meet our community needs. It's the Granger way.

Extra Special Needs: children's clothing and shoes, new underwear and socks.

Donation drop off: School Library


PLEASE SPREAD THE WORD!

*Pep Rally is no longer at the end of the day. It is now during advisory period on Friday's. (2:20-2:50) Parents: For your child's safety, please send note to teacher in advance if you will be taking your student after the pep rally. This gives the teacher a chance to have the student prepared. If this is not possible, the student will need to return to class after the rally and regular check out procedures will apply. Thank you for your understanding.
