Thieves Target Grant Turtle 
Thanks to a very aware parent who happened to be on campus Sunday, the Grant turtle is back in its rightful place.  It appears someone tried to steal the turtle, lifting it into a wheelbarrow. The weight of the turtle proved to be too much for the thieves and for the wheelbarrow, which was left behind with a popped tire and the turtle still teetering inside. School officials were called and the turtle was moved back to it's spot.  This incident highlights the need to be aware, especially if you live near campus, of things out of the ordinary. Kudos to Grant parent and neighbor Cara Newman who spotted the issue and made time to alert school officials...and many thanks to Cara's husband Scott Newman and his merry band of Grant Dad Friends, Brian Leonard and Adam Fisher
 who came to the rescue and moved the turtle back to his home turf.
