Book Blast Program Receives Overwhelming Community Support Book Blast Program Receives Overwhelming Community Support: Earlier this month, we highlighted the winners of the Book Blast program’s “Treasure Chests,” which contained books meant to help these Grimshaw students begin to build their own at-home libraries. As part of that program, the students themselves undertook a campaign to try to send donation links to 10 people each, so that any community members who wanted to contribute to this awesome program could do so. To say that the community “came through” in this regard is a vast understatement, as more than $21,000 was raised to help put books in the hands of students as we approach the summer! This meant that each student at Grimshaw recently received, at minimum, four books to add to their libraries at home! A sincere and heartfelt “thank you” goes ...

    Updates for Families March 28, 2022 Updates for Families March 28, 2022: March 28, 2022   Dear Families and Staff Members:   Thank you for your patience this morning with the snow day call. The initial two hour delay gave us some extra time to evaluate road conditions and to see how the shifting snow band would impact morning bus runs. While this snow squall did not leave us with a lot of snow, it seemed to move through LaFayette at the wrong time so we made the decision to close. Unfortunately, news reports of car accidents around LaFayette coincided with the rapid change in weather conditions. I was glad that we had the extra snow day to keep our students off the roads.    Unused Snow Days This was only our second snow day that we have used this school year. If we have unused snow days after April break, ...
