Weekly What’s Going Well:
Congratulations to our Grinnell Tiger Football Team on their Homecoming win Friday night! The stands on both sides were full with 748 admission tickets sold for the game. Way to come support your Tigers!
This week we showed our appreciation to our Maintenance and Custodian team. I thought it best to bring Shawn Edelen our Maintenance Director to the table for this Friday’s video to highlight some of the great work they’ve accomplished over the past few months.
Dear Families, please take a moment to read my letter about the importance of our school surveys HERE.
