Principals Corner

Good Afternoon Grant Gator Families,

Our Welcome Back Picnic was awesome! Thank you, PTA for bringing our Grant community together. Thank you to everyone who came out and enjoyed spending time together.

We have a new 2022-2023 procedure for volunteers and visitors. Please sign in & out on the computer in our vestibule. If you are a late arrival please sign in/out a student after 9:30 a.m.Please use the computer. No need to ring the bell. Please be prepared to show a photo ID for early dismissal. Once you sign it comes directly to our secretary's computers and we can call a student down quickly or let you in. Check out the photo above so you are aware of what to look for if you enter our building in the vestibule.

When you enter the Grant parking lot you must follow the arrows (see picture below). We need to ensure that this is consistently happening as we have a lot of parents with students who park and walk their children to their door. This week we noticed several vehicles going the wrong way and we just want to keep everyone safe. Thank you for supporting this too.

Have a fantastic weekend!!

Mrs. Mazzoni

September Lunch MENU

Septembers Character Element is RESPECT

Strive to be RESPECTFUL.

What does it mean to be respectful? Being respectful means recognizing the worth of a person by how you treat them. It means you listen well and are helpful to those around you. A respectful person treats others the way they would like to be treated. "I speak to everyone in the same way, whether he is the garbage man or the president of the university." - Albert Einstein

Parent Volunteer Lunch and Recess Support

This year we will be able to have parent volunteers help support lunch and recess if you have time in your day and love being around kids. During the first 2 weeks of school the teachers, Noon Aides, and I work to build solid and consistent expectations for our students in the cafeteria and outside on our playground. Starting the week of September 19 we hope to have these down so when our parents volunteer our students know the expectations and we WOW our volunteers when you come to help us out. Thank you in advance for joining us if you can. You may use this signup genius to let us know you will join us for the day.

Grant Spirit Wear Website

Just in case you want to get started on ordering Grant Gator Spiritwear. Every Friday we encourage our students to wear Grant Gator Gear for free.
