Granville Academy K-5 & 6-8 Family Support/Outreach Groups

K-5 & 6-8 Granville Academy families:

There are two Facebook groups that are set up for GA Pirates and families in grades K-5 & 6-8 (as parents and students) to come together and get to know each other better. The idea behind the pages is to have somewhere to go for support (help with assignments that may be confusing) or to plan a fun outing with the group ("Hey, anyone want to go to the park and have lunch this Friday?").

Please note the pages are set up to protect the privacy of students & families. Only GA Pirates are allowed to join. Please search for the groups on Facebook!

We are looking forward to getting to know our GA Pirates!

There is Science Olympiad practice tomorrow (11/25) until 2:30pm. A BIG THANK YOU to everyone who came out to the Science Olympiad fundraiser last week!
