Congratulations to the Core Value Award Recipients for April: HOPE

Commit to 36 Campaign Begins

Big picture

It's time to Commit! The Hoover City Schools Foundation has launched its only fundraising campaign of the year, and we are encouraging parents and the community to support education in our district by donating at least $36 to support a student. That's just $1 for every week of the school year. With almost 14,000 students in our system, collectively we can make a big difference in the educational offerings for our students.

A donation to the Foundation goes to support educators in our district through Teacher Grants, SeedLAB team grants, and special programs. 10% of each donation goes directly to your PTO (20% if your school reaches 20% participation). Thank you for joining us in this very important cause, for the benefit of all of our students. Visit today and choose Greystone Elementary School. We hope each family will make this commitment to support education!

Library News

Thank you to our wonderful PTA for another successful Young Authors Week! The students learned so much and enjoyed meeting our guests!

All books are due on your child's library day this week! Please help your child remember their books so Mrs. Richey can start the inventory process!
