Garden Coming to Grandview
Grandview is in the planning stages of creating a school garden!  The garden will be located on the Grandview site, near Dutch Lake.  We are working in collaboration with Gale Woods Farm and look forward to the educational and service opportunities this garden will provide, not to mention the wonderful fresh food!  We've already secured a grant from the Jeffers Foundation to help with some of the cost, as well as have enlisted a local Eagle Scout and some Girl Scouts to help with the inital creation of the garden.  More opportunities and information will come IF spring ever gets here!
MAGAZINE SALES STILL HELP OUR PTO!
Nothing says "I Love You" like a magazine, right?!?!  Please consider magazine subscriptions for Valentine's Day, birthday, or other holiday gifts!  The magazine sale has been our ONLY PTO fundraiser for years and last year generated over $18,000 for our school.  This year our sales are down.  These dollars help pay for things we may otherwise have to go without such as  WEB Orientation, student scholarships,  Respect Retreat, Author in Residence,  sound field systems,  technology, books etc.  Please encourage family and friends to renew with us on-line.   Go to www.GASCHOOLSTORE.com and use school code: 2668424.  Thank you!
