2022-2023 Yearbook - We are so excited to announce that the 2022-2023 Yearbook will be in collaboration with our first ever Groves Elementary Yearbook Club. Students will help design, take pictures, and create layouts. You may order your yearbooks now at balfour.com (search Groves Elementary in 77346). We will have a summer delivery to be able to include all parties, spring events and 5th grade of year activities, but we will be selling inserts at the end of year for students to collect autographs, so you don't need to purchase an insert now. 5th grade only dedications available for purchase now, but the design isn't due until next Spring.
