odds and ends

• MPHS Industrial Arts classes are in need of updating hoods for the dust collection system. They have dust collection venting and just need a few hoods that can be adapted to the vent to our system. If there is room they'd love some more metal and wood. The kids are amazingly creative with whatever they are given. They already have the recycle mind set!

• GES Preschool wants to thank Grand Mountain Bank for their donation of $100 through the "Lend a Hand" program.

• This week is College Week! 5th graders at GES will be visiting CU-Boulder on Thursday, March 9.

• Last week was Read Across America week and Fraser Valley Elementtary as well as Granby Elementary had various reading events where members of the community came and read with the students.
