Grant Elementary School PTA

Thank you to Shelia DeLuca for making this beautiful tree outside the LRC to thank all of our wonderful volunteers.

Each volunteer had their own "leaf" as a thank you for lending a helping hand.

End of an Era...

Its with a very heavy heart that we say goodbye to Rachel after 8 years at Grant as her youngest moves into middle school.  In those 8 years, Rachel has been a VERY active PTA volunteer and leader.  She has lead the PTA as president for the past two years and we hope you notice the difference she has made.  

So often Rachel would be trying to get volunteers or help raise funds and always said we have to have the [fill in with all of our events] because the kids love it!  She worked hours and hours to keep the amazing events on our calendar for our students and families.  

I hope everyone reading this takes a moment to email Rachel a quick thank you for all that she has done for us! 

Thank you Rachel!!!
