This is an excellent time to get information on all the wonderful preschool options in Grand County. Hope to see you there!!

• In PE classes at GES we have been learning about heart health and service to others. Last week we ended our Jump for Heart fundraiser with a jumping event which included a ton of fun activities with support from EMS, Granby PD and parent volunteers! The students at GES raised over $9,343 and are so proud to help people who have heart-related illnesses! This week students will improve their fitness by completing a giant obstacle course in the shape of a heart. Students will act as blood cells navigating their way through the heart and learning more details about heart healthy living choices and heart anatomy.

• Middle Park High School testing: Please mark your calendars for state testing. If at all possible, we encourage you to avoid appointments and other absences during CMAS Testing (Colorado Measures of Academic Success), so that students don't have to pulled from regular classes for make-up testing. All students will be taking an English Language Arts test the mornings of March 27 and 28. Seventh and eighth grade students will be taking social studies (seventh) and science tests (eighth) the mornings of April 11 and 12. All students will be taking the math test the mornings of April 17 and 18.
