FALL SPIRIT DAY CONCESSIONS – MONDAY, OCTOBER 9TH

We are planning our sixth annual Fall Spirit Day for all students in 1st – 12th grade.  We have scheduled a boys soccer game against Calvary at 12:00 noon, a girls middle school volleyball game at 12:30 and a girls varsity volleyball game at 2:00.  We will be selling lunch on the field and are looking for some parent volunteers to help run a concession stand during the game.  If you are interested please speak to Mr. Clayton or call the School Office.  Thank you!

 

PSAT – WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 11th

Students in the 10th and 11th grades will be administered the PSAT test on Wednesday, October 11th.  The PSAT will not only allow us to judge your child’s academic progress up to this point, but will also help to prepare them for the SAT.  Parents should ensure students taking the test get as much rest as possible and eat a nutritious meal the morning of the test.

 

NO SCHOOL:  FRIDAY, OCTOBER 13TH

School will be closed on Friday, October 13th for a Granite Baptist Church Couple’s Conference.  If you are interested in attending this couple’s event please contact the Church Office.

 

GRANDPARENTS’ DAY – FRIDAY, OCTOBER 27th  

Again this year we are planning a Fall Harvest Festival for our Grandparents.  Parents, we need your help in order to make this day a success!  If you would be willing to volunteer, please contact the School Office.  Please make sure you R.S.V.P. if your child’s grandparents will be attending so we can prepare.  The cost is $3.00 per child and grandparents are free.

 

LAUER’S LEARNING LADDER

When you designate Granite as your school of choice through your Lauer’s Reward Card, a percentage of each purchase goes back to our school.  You can do this at the Lauer’s customer service desk.  Thank you!

 

STUDENT DRESS FOR ATHLETIC GAMES

Student Spectators (Including Elementary):  With the exception of special events school standard dress must be worn for all school activities including after school games, Saturday tournaments and evening events.

 

STUDENT DRESS

School standard dress must be worn for all school activities.  Students are not allowed to change out of their school uniform for any reason other than P.E. or sports practice.  Students who are not leaving school immediately after P.E. or practice must change back into their school uniform for aftercare and/or games.  Important:  Parents please remember that gym shoes for indoor P.E. and for rainy day recess must have a non-marking sole.  We recommend Velcro fastened shoes if your child cannot tie his/her shoes.

 

SICK POLICY

Please remember that students who are ill or have a fever are not permitted to attend class and should not be brought to school.  A child who wakes up with a fever and is given Tylenol is still a sick child.  Please do not send your child to school within a 24 hour period of fever, vomiting or diarrhea.  No student with a temperature of 100 degrees or above will be allowed to remain in school. Thank you for your cooperation in this matter.
