It is a busy week at Grady Elementary.  Teacher & Staff Appreciation Week is in full swing.  Info:  Teacher & Staff Appreciation Week.  

It is also the week of our Spring Musical, Dig It, A Tale of Ancient Civilizations. Because Thursday will be such a busy day, we have created a link with all of the activities in time order:  Thursday Events.  There are two family days/nights at once on Thursday, so it’s possible that you may eat lunch at Lenny’s and dinner at PDQ to take advantage of both.  We still need help with chair set-up after drop-off if you have a few minutes to spare:  Chair Set Up Volunteers.

In connection with the Spring Musical, the PTA holds a raffle and silent auction fundraiser.  You can purchase tickets at the event or in advance.  You need not be present to win.  Just put your name and telephone number on the back of the tickets and we will call you if you win.  We will be pre-selling raffle tickets on Wednesday (tomorrow) before school.  On Thursday morning, we will be pre-selling tickets, and will have the raffle basket prizes on display ready for you to deposit your tickets into a basket for a chance to win each item you select.   The tickets and items will be in front of the school from 7:30 AM until 8:30 AM. You can purchase tickets in advance and enter them into the raffle for the specific items you want.  Raffle tickets are $1 each, 7 for $5 and 15 for $10.  This is our end of year school fundraiser and we hope you will participate and enjoy this event.  A preview list of raffle items is here:  Auction & Raffle Items.

Thank you to the many families who have donated to the gift card raffle for teachers and staff. Your generosity is overwhelming!   We will have a full update about the gift card raffle tomorrow.
