A Weekly Look at Grant Elementary School

Pick up on Wednesdays 12:45 pm

On Wednesdays, students eat their lunch before going back to their classrooms to pack up. Please remember to remain out of the hallways until the bell rings to allow teachers to gather their students and prepare them for dismissal.



We have a new gate over by the YMCA to increase the safety of our students on campus. This gate will remain LOCKED during school hours and will be unlocked again at 2:15 pm before dismissal to assist in the ease of pick-up.

Back Gate at Sunnyslope

Please do not use this gate for entry during school hours. Students may enter through this gate at the beginning of the school day and leave through the gate at dismissal. If you are picking up your Kindergarten student at 11:40 am or 1:40 pm, please enter through the front of the school.

Volunteers Needed!

One of the things that makes Grant so great is that we are all in this together. Our strong PTA is bolstered by so many amazing parent and grandparent volunteers. We are able to put on talent shows, plays, BBQs, ice cream socials, bowling and dance events, sign up parties, holiday shops and much more. We are so grateful to everyone who has signed up so far to volunteer for the various PTA community events, but this year there are still a lot of open spots. It is your involvement that helps make these events possible!

  • Are you an organized leader? The auction chair position may be for you!
  • Is having performing arts in our schools important to you? We could use your help with the play this year.
  • Want to help put on a dance? Chair the event, be on the setup committee...we would love your help.

Our volunteer coordinator, Cassie, can help you find the right volunteer opportunity for you and your schedule! She's at

Grant Family BBQ

Petaluma, CA

Mark your calendars now. The Grant Family PTA BBQ will be on Friday, September 14th. It's a great event where we can come together as a community and reconnect or get to know each other as the school year gets underway. The kids have a blast dancing to the sounds of a DJ and running around the field. Dinner provided by the PTA...what could be better than a free dinner with friends?!
