Grant Jog-a-Thon New Online Fundraising Link!

The new online fundraising platform for the Grant Jog-a-thon is up and running!  We hope that this new system will help reach our goal of $30k this year.  In the pledge packet that went home, you will find instructions.  It takes less than 10 minutes to create your students customized fundraising page that you can email to friends and family who may live far away or post to social media.

We appreciate all the support! 
Jog on!




Dinner for your whole family is on us at the PTA Sponsored Grant Family BBQ.  Bring camp chairs or a blanket to sit on and head to the Grant athletic field on Friday evening, September 29th for dinner and family dancing!  This is one event not to be missed!

Grant's Got Talent -  Practice #1 on 9/28
We are changing practices a bit, assigning certain performers to certain days.  It's an effort to streamline the process for everyone. The first practice will include singers and pianists.  If your performer is singing (with or without back-up dancers) or playing the piano, this is the practice they or their group should attend.  This first Talent Show Practice is scheduled after school on Thursday, Sept. 28th.  It's expected to end by 3:30. Questions? email Kim at kimmccallister@gmail.com
