Please remember to check the district’s Virtual Backpack for activities and events that are available to students.
Here is the link to our Connected PTO group to keep up on their current events which support our students.
Parents/Students: The Middle School lost and found tables are being set up in the front entrance. Please check the tables to see if any of your missing items might be there. Our lost and found tables will be set up until the last day of school.
With summer right around the corner, it’s time to think about keeping children eating healthy while school is out. Grinnell-Newburg Community School District provides free meals to children during the summer.
The summer meals will be served at the Davis Elementary cafeteria, Monday through Friday from June 10th to August 2nd. Breakfast will be served from 7:45 am to 8:30 am. Lunch will be from 11:00 am to 12:30 pm. There are no income requirements or registration. Any child, ages 1-18 may come to eat for free. Each year, the United States Department of Agriculture partners with local organizations like Grinnell-Newburg Community School District to provide free meals to children when school is out for the summer. Adults can eat breakfast $2.25 and lunch for $3.75 at Davis Elementary. Please see our flier for more details and info about a lunch on Thursdays at Willow Court.
All books are due back to the library. Please return them, and make arrangements to pay any fines for lost or damaged books. Thanks for a great year! GMS students checked out 10,427 books this year!
If you did not receive a schedule for the Drake library summer program, or if you lost yours, you may pick one up at the desk in the GMS library, or find it here: http://grinnell.lib.ia.us/summer-reading-program/
