Hello Whirlie Family, 

I am excited to be serving as the Grimsley PTSA President along with the rest of the executive board. If you are already an established Whirlie Family, welcome back! We are looking forward to partnering with you again this year to support our staff and students! If you are new to Grimsley, let me briefly introduce our organization! The Grimsley PTSA is the only campus organization that supports ALL students. We actively seek out opportunities to play a vibrant role at the school by helping maintain our own unique sense of community, while also implementing the National PTA Values of collaboration, commitment, diversity, respect, and accountability.    

I am proud of the successes our PTSA has accomplished and greatly appreciate the efforts of our Board to keep our Whirlie Family connected to our school as we navigated through the past few years.  This is the first year in a while that I feel we are back to the way school is supposed to be, and I hope you will be an active member of our community by being involved in the PTSA. Please join us at our first meeting on Tuesday, August 9th at 5:30 PM in the cafeteria.  
  
I know we can make a difference together! 
 
We are Whirlies!
 
Diane Creech

The school year approaches and our historic campus needs some loving attention to look its best for our returning and new Whirlies! On Saturday, August 6, some helpful and capable students, staff, and families started the work on picking up trash, trimming shrubs and bushes, weeding, spreading pine mulch, and freshening the flower pots! But there's still some work to be done! There's one more opportunity left to volunteer to beautify Grimsley!

Wednesday, August 10, 9am-12pm: We will tackle all else that remains! Service Learning hours for students! Bring yard tools if you have them (rakes, clippers, shovels, loppers), gloves, and water. Snacks will be provided (and gloves if you don't have any)!

Hope to have many helping hands! Thank you in advance!
