Weekly Update: April 29, 2022
Dear Grinnell Board of Education, Staff, Families, and Friends:
Happy Friday! It is hard to believe that there are only three more Fridays left in the school year. The last day for students will be on Thursday, May 26, 2022, with an early dismissal. That afternoon at 1:30 pm, we will celebrate our Grinnell Tiger Staff, who will be retiring, and years of staff service. The teachers' last day of school will be on May 27. Please continue to watch for details regarding the final weeks of the school year. There are many activities planned in the weeks ahead. Keep an eye out for those weekly updates from your building principals for further details.
It is Prom weekend, and we wish everyone a safe prom weekend experience. Let’s hope the rain holds off for the event.
