The PTA is doing great things at Grant.  Providing $48 per student for classroom supplies, funding great field trips, the school play, and new this year - Grant's Got Talent.  The PTA brought you the Ice Cream Social and you will find yourself warmly welcomed at events throughout the year that celebrate bringing the Grant community together.  Please consider joining the PTA for $15 (you can give more if you'd like.) Forms are in the office as is the PTA drop-off basket or you can drop it off with your child's teacher.
