A message from GRANT ELEMENTARY SCHOOL DISTRICT
Hello and happy Monday everyone from Grant School. This is Mr. Freeman, the Superintendent/Principal of Grant, emailing with a look at what is happening around here this week. On the calendar this week is our Sports Boosters Meeting this Friday at 8:00 in the Conference Room. Friday will be Blue and Gold Day and it is also the day for our annual PTO Art Fair. The Cafeteria will be converted into an Art Museum with pieces on display from Grant students. If you are available to help with the set up Friday afternoon swing on by. PTO would love to have the help. Come and check out the creativity and talent of our students. Saturday is a big day for some Grant students. The 8th grade boys basketball team, our cheerleaders, and Choir students will be heading down to Sacramento to see our students take on the Boulder Creek Bears on the Kings court inside the Golden 1 Center. Choir will be performing the national anthem and then everyone will be watching the Kings take on the Philadelphia 76ers later that night. Have fun guys. I promise you it will be an unforgettable experience. Before I let you go I have a couple of important announcements.
- First, the deadline for the early ticket price for the CEF Dinner will be January 31st. Tickets right now are $35 each but they will go up after 1/31 so get your tickets this week. The dinner and auction event will be at the Win River Event Center on February 9th. Doors open at 6:00 and it will be a great time. There are live auction items, including art projects done by our students with a little help from some very creative people. There will also be a silent auction with incredible items available. Add to that a great dinner, the Grant School community coming together, a DJ, and a dance floor and you can see why this is one of the best events of the year. You don’t want to miss it so get your tickets soon.
- Also happening on February 9th will be the Mini Cougar Cheer Clinic. This event will run from 8:15-1:00 and is a great chance for younger girls to work directly with Grant School Cheer to learn what it takes to be a Cougar cheerleader. The cost of the clinic is $65 and proceeds will help pay for the girls’ trip to Crescent City as they participate in the Jaycee’s Tournament. Each participant will receive a Grant Cheer t-shirt and will learn a routine that they will get to perform in front of the whole school later in the year. Checks can be made payable to Grant School Cheer and the deadline to register is February 1st.
- Last thing on my list is that Grant School is participating in the Great Kindness Challenge. We are practicing acts of kindness to work out our “kindness muscles”. Students were given a checklist of activities to practice kindness in their interactions with others. We will be randomly selecting students that successfully complete the checklist and they will receive prizes for their kindness. Students can turn in their completed checklists in the Main Office.
I could go on and on about the great things happening at Grant School these days. I want to thank all of our parents for your support and for all that you do to help us help kids. Let’s keep Making Every Day Count. Have a good evening and GO COUGARS!
