What a weekend to be a Whirlie!  From the pep rally on Friday to our knockout win over Northwest High School for our Homecoming football game that night. Miles for Matthew 5K run Saturday morning, and then the Homecoming festivities Saturday night.  Every single event had an amazing turnout and none of these events would have happened without our Grimsley Staff and Parent Volunteers helping.  Thank you to everyone who volunteered.
 
All the events that I mentioned that happened this weekend were not just specific PTSA events.  I mentioned all of them to show how the many groups we have at Grimsley work together to provide fun and safe events for our students so that they will have meaningful high school memories.  The monetary support from our parents and community partners, as well as the time you contribute volunteering for the many events offered at Grimsley High School is the core that provides our students with these opportunities.  I personally invite you to be part of what makes Whirlie Nation a family.
 
Have you wanted to know what your student does every day at Grimsley?  Parents & Guardians, you will have this opportunity on Tuesday night, from 5:30 - 7:30 PM at Walk the Schedule night.  We will start in the Auditorium at 5:30 for our first General PTSA meeting of the year where we will officially vote in our officers and vote to approve our PTSA budget.  After our brief meeting you will get to follow the bell schedule and meet your students' teachers and learn about their classes.  It is important to make sure you are following your students' schedule correctly since their teacher may teach several different classes.  Counselors will have a copy of your student's schedule available in the Grove and/or outside the Auditorium beginning at 5:15. I look forward to seeing you there!
 
Go Whirlies!
