Happy Labor day Weekend!  

I hope you all are enjoying your last “official” weekend of summer. I am sure everyone is thankful for a 3-day weekend after the first full week of school.  We are jumping straight into the school year with activities.

Our Homecoming Dance will be on September 24th.  Students who wish to bring a non-Grimsley guest must complete a guest form by 9/14.  The forms can be found in the Main Office.  The Homecoming Dance is for all students, 9th - 12th grade.  

The PTSA collaborates with our Student Council by providing the coat check for the dance.  This is a fun way to interact with the students, seeing them all dressed up and having fun!  If you would like to volunteer click on the sign-up,  https://www.signupgenius.com/go/10C0F4BADAD23AAF49-grimsley2 , and reserve your spot. Thank you to Hope Seeber for organizing our coat-check for so many years.  Hope's youngest is a Senior this year and so if you are interested in organizing our check checks in the future please let us know.  

Thank you Whirlies!

Diane Creech
GHS PTSA President
