Christmas 2017

School bells ring; are you listening?
In the classes, excitement's building!
Exam week is here; the teachers all cheer!
Christmas break is finally near.

The Christmas spirit's got us now,
we can't believe just how -
we got here this fast, can this feeling just last?
Christmas break is finally near!

Gone away is first semester
We're heading in the right direction!
After the break, the counting will start,
Only 90 school days left, bless our hearts!

Merry Christmas!

Yes, first semester exam week is finally here! Students are studying, teachers are reviewing and creating exams, and administrators are keeping a close eye on us all. Exams begin Wednesday, December 20 and end Friday, December 21. After exams, Grenada School District students, faculty, and staff will be dismissed from classes until January 8, 2018.

On January 8, faculty and staff only will return for a day of professional development while students will enjoy one more day of break. Once students return, it's a full court press until May and the end of yet another year. While May seems like a long time way away (and feels like a REALLY long way to others), don't worry – Spring Break is right around the corner!

Soon the birds will be chirping, the temperature will rise, and we'll begin to see a little more daylight each day, causing our spirits to lift and our energy levels rise. Until that glorious time of year, however, we are all still stuck smack dab in the middle of Fall semester exam week.
