Today is the last day of school.  School ends early at 11:45 am, with the fifth grade clap out at 11:30 am. We had an amazing year and celebrated our students’ accomplishments with various awards ceremonies at school this week. Congratulations to all of our students and thank you to our amazing faculty for helping them achieve so much!! Principal Dosal also announced that Grady was listed as #1 in the district’s TELL (Teaching, Empowering, Leading and Learning) survey!

We hope that you all have a safe, happy summer.  For all of our returning students, we are excited to see you recharged and ready for another fun year.  For our 5th graders, congratulations! We are very proud of you and wish you all the best in middle school!
