We believe Ms. Pardee is now offering $250 to students who can memorize the poem, in case anyone wants to take the challenge!

There are many fantastic stories of Grant parents and students who give back to Grant in various volunteer capacities.
The Booster Club tries to spotlight some of these stories in our Volunteer of the Week posts.  If you know of someone who was ‘caught being good’, please contact us.

Our first volunteers of the week for the 2014/15 school year, pictured with their new Principal Wendy Gellis, are a first grader (Jasmine Martinez) and third grader (Holden Hendrickson) who each won $500 for Grant by memorizing a poem and reciting it to the local realtor Tami Pardee (thanks for the tip Michelle Martinez!).

If you would like to learn more about volunteer opportunities at Grant, please contact Cindy Lynne (cindy.lynne@verizon.net) or Matt Hendrickson (hendrickson1965@gmail.com).

Room Reps Needed

If you are interested in being a Room Rep for your child’s classroom, please come to the brief informational meeting on Monday, August 25, at 6:00 in the library.

We will be handing out materials for each class. There will not be child care provided, but feel free to bring your children, if necessary.

If you have any questions, or if you would like to be a Room Rep but cannot attend the meeting, please email Cindy at cindy.lynne@verizon.net.

Grant’s Registration for Everyone

Dear Grant Families,

As I mentioned in prior emails, this year we are doing a combination paper and electronic registration. Today, Tuesday, August 19, your child will come home with a manila packet of paperwork we ask you to complete and return to school with your child.  Teachers will keep track of all of the papers and we need you to return all of the paperwork.  Recall, the online materials need to be read in order for you to complete and sign off on the papers we provided you in the envelope. Please take the time to read and sign everything.

The link below will get you to the required online papers/pamphlets, etc. that you can save into a file for future reference.  If you have trouble using the link, go to our school’s website and click on the First Day Packet button.

Let us know if you need assistance.

Warmly,

Wendy Wax Gellis
