Together We: Learn, Grow, Lead

Grange Hall Families,


Our annual Grange Hall Bulldog Fun Run kicks off this week! When you get a chance, go to funrun.com to register your students. If you have more than one child at GHES the family pledge page has already been activated for your family. Feel free to make your first donation today!


It’s a two-week program that kicks off with a pep rally on Tuesday, 2/25. Families will then gather pledges for every lap your student runs (30-35 laps) at the Grange Hall Bull Dog Fun Run, which will happen on Thursday, 3/5. This year our goal is to raise $30,000 for educational resources & enhancements (ie: tablets & Osmo kits for grades K-2; recess carts for all grades) and we need your help!


We’ve asked the experts at Booster to power our fundraiser to make it easier, more profitable, and more fun. Students will also experience an amazing character theme, MINDSPARK: WILD WEST! Booster’s most exciting theme yet combines S.T.E.A.M. skills (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math) with character-building. While they're teaming up with the MindSpark Kids to save Dr. Shock, our students will learn five character traits that will help strengthen themselves and our world.


Donations will go toward educational resources & enhancements during the entire two-week experience. So please help our school by getting pledges from family and friends and entering them on FUNRUN.COM. All families are invited to come out and cheer on our students at the Grange Hall Bull Dog Fun Run on Thursday, March 5th. Thanks so much for your support!



With gratitude,

Mrs. Jones

Principal & Lead Learner

Kindergarten Online Registration is OPEN!

If you are a family of a rising kindergarten student or know of a family who will be sending a child to kindergarten during the 2020-21 school year, it’s time to start thinking about kindergarten registration.


Great news! We’ve got an opportunity to save some time on April 16, which is Kindergarten Registration Day at every elementary school in Chesterfield County.


Visit https://mychesterfieldschools.com/family-and-community-engagement/preparing-for-school/student-registration/kindergarten-registration/ and preregister for kindergarten today. Doing so should cut in half any wait time on Kindergarten Registration Day.


Please remember to share this message with any family you know who has a rising kindergarten student!
