Welcome to October!
We have upcoming events to be aware of… Walk to School Day and Jogathon to name just two. Walk to School Day is a fall partner to Bike to School Day in the spring. Wednesday, October 9th is Walk to School Day. If you live close enough, it’s a great day to try walking to school. Organize a walking school bus in your neighborhood. Enjoy the fresh air and a lovely walk to school!
Jogathon pledge information comes home on Friday. Jogathon happens on October 25th. Students will have 20 minutes to jog and have their laps counted. Funky socks are encouraged! It’s going to be a great event. Thank you PTA!
Lunch is Served!
Our amazing Mrs. Duncan serves lunch daily at Grant School. Lunch schedules are available on line and in the office. A great way to ensure that lunch is paid for is to pay online! Go to: http://pcsfoods.com/Home_Page.html to set up your lunch account. And you can always turn in a check to the Grant School office. Thank you Mrs. Duncan!

Welcome back Mrs. Crysdale!
I (Mrs. Haugen) had the opportunity to help run the library for a few days while Mrs. Crysdale was recuperating. I now understand why she loves her job so much. Students arrived in the library ready to read, look at the books, enjoy a read aloud and generally bask in the ambiance of the library. I am so thankful to our army of parent volunteers (too numerous to name) that kept things running. Grant School is amazing when it comes to parent volunteers. We had no shortage of folks willing to come in and hold down the fort. Thank you volunteers and welcome back to Mrs. Crysdale. We missed you!
