The summer is here, and what a great year we had at Grant! The kids were able to participate in some fun activities this year, and had great field trips because of our PTO. As the summer is moving quickly, please considering having your child read, and practice their math skills 15-20 minutes per day. This will only help them be ready for the fall, and make their skills stronger.

Please consider joining the PTO this year. They do a lot of great things for our kids, and they need to add some members. They only meet once a month for about 90 minutes, and run two events for our kids (one in the fall and one in the spring). Please contact albiapto@gmail.com if you are willing to help out with this committee.

The office is officially closed for the summer. Mr. Strickler’s schedule this summer includes lots of meetings and professional development. If you would like to contact Mr. Strickler please email him at billy.strickler@albia.k12.ia.us, or leave a phone message at 641-932-2161 ext 1201. You can also call Central Office and they can transfer your call to my office. If you need anything regarding a lunch balance or other information it would be best to contact Central Office. They are open 7:00-5:00 Monday through Thursday.
