The season begins with an informational meeting Friday, January 13th at 2:45pm in the multi.  All interested students and parents are encouraged to attend to discuss production, submit applications, and potentially take audition scripts home.  Auditions will be held the following Friday, January 20th.  Rehearsals will on Fridays after school, with a few small group rehearsals on Wednesdays closer to the performance date.  Applications available in the office starting this Tuesday. Performances will be in April.

Wish Board  1/17

Dine & Donate at Sauced 1/23
Perfect evening for a little BBQ and some corn bread!  Come to Sauced in Theatre Square for dinner on 1/23.  They are graciously donating a portion of the evenings proceeds back to the Grant PTA.

After School Enrichment 
New after school classes start soon.  Jewelry making is confirmed for Thursdays.  Lego class will also be held Thursdays, not Mondays as the flier that came home announced.  We apologize for the error.  For the full list of classes, check the website at http://www.grantelementary.org/after-school-enrichment
