Reading Challenge

We did it! Students at West Grand met their goal for the Spring Reading Challenge. To celebrate, the elementary school will have a pajama day on Tuesday, May 8. As students choose their pajamas, please keep in mind we will still participate in recess and specials.

Students have also been invited to a special karaoke performance by Mrs. Kelly Martin. Mrs. Martin will sing a song recommended by students (we're hoping for a Justin Bieber song) at an assembly on pajama Tuesday at 3:00.

Music & Free Dress Day- Tuesday, April 24

We’ve done it again! Students have earned a whole jar of marbles for their positive behavior. To celebrate, students have chosen to have a music day when they can bring in their own music to listen to and a free dress day where they can wear whatever they want as long as the outfit is not distracting to them or others. Please keep in mind that music and clothing must be appropriate for school (and weather).
