August Calendar 2013

The Grenada School District started with a bang last Thursday with an approximate enrollment of 4,332 students overall.  Grenada Lower Elementary had 1,521 students registered in grades K-3, Grenada Upper Elementary had 671 students enrolled in grades 4 – 5, Grenada Middle school had 990 signed up in grades 6 – 8, and Grenada High School had 1,150 enrolled in grades 9 – 12.  Our school district is blessed with the opportunity to touch the lives of this extraordinary number of students within our community each year. 

On Wednesday, August 7, 2013, GSD students attended “Meet the Teacher” day.  This day allows students and parents time to locate classrooms, make a personal connection with new teachers, and find out any special requirements for classes.  Students enjoy visiting teachers from previous years during this time as well.  Many teachers appreciate the opportunity to put a face with a name before the rush of the first day of school and to make that all-important initial contact with parents.  Once this important day is over, it’s full steam ahead for the new school year!

Each year, the calendar of events for the Grenada School District grows.  Many important events and activities take place during the first few weeks and months of school.  This year is no exception with an August calendar chocked full of important happenings.  Important events to remember this month include:
