Weekly Update: June 4, 2021


Dear Grinnell-Newburg Board of Education, Staff, Families, and Friends:

Happy Friday! Happy Last Day Of School! This year will be one for the storybooks in the years to come. I appreciate teachers, custodians, Para staff, support staff, cooks, bus drivers, nurses, administrative assistants, administrators, and our community's effort to be flexible, embrace change quickly and swiftly, and advocate to ensure that our students' needs were met every day. I would like to also send a shout-out to our families for their continued support and understanding during this past school year. Thank you to our students for your cooperation and understanding as we had to navigate a difficult year. I hope that everyone enjoys time with their families and friends this summer. You all deserve a nice break!

Feature Video

If you have not had an opportunity to see the video below, please take a moment to watch this!  It is very moving and is one example of how our staff during a challenging year found a way to stay connected, be creative, and embrace the use of technology to ensure that students had remarkable experiences.   Thank you, Mr. Roger Henderson, alumni, and students for sharing this experience with us!
