Happenings at East Grand schools
Happy Holidays to all of our East Grand Community. Without the support of our parents, extended families, businesses, partners and great people living in the East Grand District we couldn’t provide the high quality education and experiences we have for our kids. Have safe, happy and joyous holidays.
Kindergarteners at FVE celebrated the upcoming winter break with a Gingerbread House decorating party! Decorating their own house was the culmination of a two-week unit comparing and contrasting various gingerbread stories and discussing characters and setting in the stories. It has become a fun tradition for the kindergarteners and parents.
EGMS Students working on designing, building, and testing a bridge. Students needed to span a 14” space, have a 2” road width, and no more than a 3” substructure. Bridges will be tested as part of EGMS PBL projects.
Granby Preschool took a field trip to the Christmas trains. Small group of students and parent volunteers participated in a scavenger hunt that Ms. Jenny Cautrell created for young children. It was wonderful to witness the students seeing the Christmas trains and the tiny town that Mr. Naples has made into a detailed, interactive, and fun miniature town.
The annual Bonfills Blood Drive sponsored by the thirteen members of the National Honor Society was held on Thursday, December 13th in the Library at Middle Park High School. Twenty-three donors gave an hour of their time to donate, seventeen of the donors were first time donors. Every unit of blood saves three lives so 69 lives were saved because of our collective efforts. Thanks to everyone who gave.
Quote of the season by a third grader at GES who had just finished his ginger bread house and was carefully and oh so slowly carrying it down the hall. “This is going to take me so long I am going to be extinct!”
Allison raised almost $5,000 and counting and she and Sierra Manyak were on CBS4 news for the St. Jude’s fundraiser!
Every school had music concerts the week before the holiday break. The students performed great and the auditoriums and gyms were packed with standing room only crowds. Thanks for coming out and supporting our students.
Frank Reeves is the superintendent of East Grand School District.
