La Granada Newsletter

March 2021

Dear families,

This month has started out with our Read Across America week. Our students have enjoyed virtual guest readers, and videos of celebrities reading to students. We will continue our March celebration with Career Week in a similar manner. Thank you for participating in our spirit week. We love seeing our students take part and wear crazy socks, hats, and many other fun gear. We appreciate your support with all of your communication with our teachers especially on any Friday assignments. Please remember that all students have a Friday assignments that counts for their attendance. They also have to submit their assignment before their teacher's deadline every Friday. We appreciate your participation and collaboration with La Granada staff.
