Dine and Donate at Brewsters 5/2
This Dine & Donate event benefits Grant families in need - those among us who are in crisis or going through temporary difficulty.  The Grant Good Guys (aka Grant Cares) will provide meals, gift cards, transportation and as much relief as possible for our fellow Grant families going through tough times.  It's a great reason to head to the hot new restaurant/beer garden in town, Brewsters, on May 2nd.  Bring a flier and Brewsters will donate 10% of your check to help those who need it most.  If you need a printable version of the flier, emailkimmccallister@gmail.com

Volunteer Breakfast 5/12
A celebration of Grant's volunteers.  If you've helped in your child's classroom, chaperoned field trips, assisted with art projects or school events, helped spruce up the garden, maintained the display case...whatever you've done this year at Grant - we want to thank you.  We know Grant would not be as successful without all the parent support and involvement.  So, come have breakfast on us and feel the love.

Grant PTA BBQ - All Grant Families Welcome 5/12
This is a really fun night for Grant Families.  Bring a blanket to spread out, your camping chair and your dancing shoes!  The Grant PTA will provide dinner and music.  The kids have a blast running around the field dancing and playing and it's a great way to celebrate our Grant Community.  Hope to see you on the field! 




1stgrade 2

First Grade Play 5/15
Becoming a tradition at Grant, written by the amazing 1st Grade teachers and adorably performed by the 1st Grade students, the 1st Grade Play is one of those things parents will never forget.  Don't forget to bring tissue for all the mom tears. 


Lion King Wrap Up
That's it for the Lion King.  We hope you enjoyed the show because the cast, crew and volunteer organizers had a blast putting it on.  We'll see you again next year (we are looking for volunteers to get involved with Performing Arts - if that's you, emailkimmccallister@gmail.com) until then...enjoy these great pictures from the show!
