Don't forget - February is A Penny-A-Day Month. All of our students are being asked to bring in a penny a day for the month of February - or 28¢ - to help Grandview's Fred E. Hayes Post 57 of the American Legion raise money for Operation Comfort Warriors. There is a collection box in every classroom, where students can deposit their change during the month. Donations will be accepted through Tuesday, Feb. 28.
Read Across America Week starts Feb. 27 - means dress up days and family fun. We will be celebrating Read Across America Week starting on Monday, Feb. 27. The week is going to kick-off with Dr. Seuss Read Alouds in every classroom. Then on Tuesday, Feb. 28, we'll celebrate Dr. Seuss's birthday with a pajama day at school and a Family Reading Night and Potato Bash that evening. The Potato Bash will start at 6 p.m. Baked potatoes with all the fixing will be available for $3 with all of the proceeds going to support our school's Relay for Life team. Then at 6:30 p.m. we'll start our Family Reading Night. There will be different activities set up in the gym. Wednesday, March 1, will be Wacky Wednesday - a day to dress up mixed up.
