Good morning Grant Middle School, today is Wednesday, September 25  2019


We are in need of a new storage facility outside to house some recess and PE equipment. This storage unit will be built by CACC ( and 186 students from LHS, SHS & SE )- so we're saving over $1,000 by using them.  On Monday, September 30th we will have a dress down day where Students AND STAFF may wear any sports shirt or jersey for $2 along with jeans , sweats no holes in jeans , no pajamas or house pants . It must be a sport shirt- . Any donation above that would be greatly appreciated.

 In addition, that week we will be having a  spare change war for students during lunch. All classes who raise over $200 will be able to  throw pies in the faces of our beloved PE teachers. Students will be chosen to throw at random from the Purple Positives.
