First graders at Granby Elementary are studying all about communities. Joan Miyauchi, from Miyauchi’s Snack Bar in Grand Lake, is presenting five lessons sponsored by Junior Achievement. Students will be learning about communities, needs and wants, and entrepreneurship.

Fourth grade at Granby Elementary studies about the regions of Colorado. This week, students created salt dough relief maps of the Colorado regions and practiced creating a legend to help others understand their map.

Granby Elementary School has been nominated for a Capturing Kids’ Hearts National Showcase Schools award for the 2018-2019 school year by the Flippen Group! Flippen Group seeks to recognize and celebrate schools that go the extra mile each day, building an environment where students and staff feel safe and connected. Flippen Group teams will begin conducting site visits to nominated campuses to gather additional quantitative and qualitative data and interview students, teachers, administrators, and parents. Following the site visit, the selection team will review all accumulated data and select the campuses to be this year’s recipients of the Capturing Kids’ Hearts National Showcase Schools awards. Congratulations Granby Elementary for your nomination!
