Welcome to Whirlie Nation.  It is my pleasure to welcome you all to Grimsley and the PTSA.  My name is Tammy Lea-Hill, I am serving as VP of Membership.  Thanks to everyone that has joined PTSA. 

Please join PTSA to support our teachers, staff and students. Students can also join PTSA as well as grandparents.  A portion of the money raised by your membership goes back into the school to support/fund different programs for staff and students.  You can join online as well as paper forms located in the office.  The cost of membership is, $8 for parents/guardians, staff and $6 for students.

We still need a few volunteers for coat check at Homecoming Dance next Saturday (September 24th), especially during the second shift! This is actually a super fun volunteer opportunity and it's great to see the kids dressed up and having a good time.
 
If your student is worried about you spying on them at the dance you can assure them you will be hidden away in a closet during your shift and won't cramp their style.
