In the schools: Honoring our students in the upper grade levels
East Grand Superintendent
Great Happenings in East Grand Schools the week of June 12 (continued). At the end of every year, our schools have awards ceremonies where we get to recognize all of the achievements of our students throughout the year. We did not get to have those ceremonies in person this year so we are listing the many recognitions our great students earned and received in the Sky-Hi News. In the last edition, elementary schools were featured.
