Thank you to everyone who attended our special General Assembly PTA meeting on January 26th! At the meeting, we amended our budget to add a $10,000 expense line item to begin updating technology at Grady. 

 

Here are some important upcoming dates to note:

  • 1/31 – Class Pictures & Last day to purchase 5th grade yearbook ads
  • 2/6 – Chick-fil-A Spirit night from 4-8pm at 609 S Dale Mabry Hwy. This spirit night will benefit the 5th grade end of year activities.
  • 2/9 – Non-Student Day (Florida State Fair Day)
  • 2/23 - Jump Rope for Heart & Field Day – Jump Rope For Heart is a fun field day that has kids jumping rope, running and jumping over hurdles and bouncing in a bounce house.  In addition to fun, students will learn about heart health and the importance of a good diet.  Jump Rope For Heart also has a fundraising component that raises money for the American Heart Association and raises money for athletic equipment for Grady Elementary.  You will be receiving detailed information about the program and how to fund raise shortly. If you have any questions about JRFH in the meantime, please email Ms. Murrell at [email protected].

   It will be a very fun night with a DJ, delicious food and drinks, and lots of great items to bid on to     raise funds to update our school’s technology! Some of the fantastic auction items available that       evening include a birthday party at The Prep, a beach house rental at Indian Shores, 10 pack of         CycleBar classes, and private QB lessons from an NFL quarterback! 

  If you have any items you can donate for the auction, please contact Julie Alexander         at [email protected].
