Happening at East Grand schools
East Grand School District Superintendent
• Here is a message from GES Principal Kelly Martin to her staff last week: “I’ve wanted to find a way to thank all of you for your hard work and to show you how much I appreciate each of you. I’ve decided to hold a unique contest to find a group who impresses me the most with their creativity and team skills. I also have a really great TOP SECRET PRIZE picked out for the winning team as my way of expressing thanks.” The staff had a fun time working with each other all week.
• The Crew is in its final week of collaboration with the Rocky Mountain Wooden Boat School. We have poured two weeks’ worth of love into restoring “Old Blue” by sanding, patching, painting, and measuring out pieces to replace what can’t be salvaged on the boat. This week, we’ll be steaming pieces and fitting them into place. Special thanks to Ken Fucik, Brian Heckman, Ken Church, Jimmy Cunningham, Mark Mix, and Ralph Fitch for donating their time and efforts to our students and this project.
• Fraser Valley Elementary fifth grade students had job interviews on Wednesday in preparation for their visit to Ameritowne. Ameritowne is a miniature city that the students get to become the adults and run the town for a day. In the curriculum the students learn financial literacy, career exploration, civics and economics. The students are looking forward to attending next month.
• On Feb. 22, the entire kindergarten class at Fraser Valley Elementary went on an exciting sleigh ride at Devil’s Thumb Ranch. During the sleigh ride, the students learned about ranch life, fed the horses, and viewed the beautiful scenery. A special thanks to Garth and Jill Eichler for making this trip possible for our kindergarten students.
• GES second graders participated in the Ace hardware paint party during art class. They got to mix their own creative color and come up with an amazing name to go with their creation. The second graders then voted on what they thought was the best color. A big thank you to Granby Ace for supplying the materials!
• It is not too late!! The high school drama production is taking place this weekend. Rock of Ages is the production and it is sure to be an entertaining time with a great cast. Shows are Friday and Saturday night.
• Next week in sixth grades social studies, students will be giving public presentations about a problem they have worked through and solved. This problem is a result of studying Meso-American Indian tribes (Aztec, Inca, etc…) and developing a product that would have helped their society thrive and prosper.
