Deck the Shelves 2014

Help us to Deck the Shelves at Grant Road School 

 

 

Deck the Shelves is an optional, alternative to gifts for teachers and staff  members at Christmas.  

Families make a donation, and then the school librarian will purchase a new book on their behalf.

Those who participate will be the first borrower of the book. A book plate will be placed in the book in recognition of the student/family donation. The new book will be available in the school library for circulation. 

Thank you for your consideration to support Deck the Shelves!

Terry Fox Fundraiser

Help Us Raise Money for Terry Fox!!!

Grant Road School is using this week to raise money to help support the Terry Fox Foundation for cancer research.  As a school, our goal is to raise $500 or more.  Mr. Chernoff has been gracious enough to allow himself to be the target of humliation if our school goal is reached.  Today, students had a chance to pick from three different activities that Mr. Chernoff will put himself through in support of this great cause.  The highest number of votes wins.  

1.  Shave his legs
2.  Get duct taped to the gymnasium wall
3.  Become a human sundae

Help us by sending any spare change with your child to school throughout the week and we will add it to the collection jar at the office.  Stayed tuned to see if we reach our goal!

First Day of School

The first day of school is on Tuesday, September 2nd.
