Superintendent's Update: May 17, 2024

Weekly What’s Going Well: 

Happy Friday Grinnell-Newburg Families!  Today the class of 2024 enjoyed their last day of school! As a reminder, the last day of school for the rest of the students is Friday May 31st.  Take a listen to this week’s video featuring Middle School Principal Nicole James sharing about an updated summer enrichment experience.  This will be project based learning and is open to any current 5th - 7th grade student.  Sign up your student here

Congratulations and good luck to all of our Track and Field athletes at the state meet!  And best wishes to our other athletes as they continue to prepare for their next event!  

In a more behind the scenes update, the district received roughly a $19,000 rebate from Alliant Energy for some of the HVAC and lighting upgrades that were made recently.  Thanks to our Facilities team for working hard on the improvements!
