Grimsley PTSA has a 30 year tradition of hosting a fun, drug and alcohol free event the night of graduation for our seniors so they can enjoy one final night with friends on campus. We are gearing up for this year's event with fun plans for a carnival style event, rain or shine on June 3rd.
Please help us reach our fundraising goal of $6,500 to help fund this fantastic and free event for our seniors!
Please help celebrate our graduating Seniors! Would love to have more underclassman parents volunteers so parents of seniors can enjoy the day with their families.
Summer AP Boot Camp
We are excited to announce Summer AP Boot Camp opportunities for high school students!
Who: First time AP students who want to get a head start on learning the skills required for successful AP participation.
What: AP Boot Camps in six categories – AP Math, AP English, AP Science, AP History, AP Social Science, AP Computer Science
When: Weekly Boot Camps from June 13-17 through July 25-29; two hours of online instruction per day
How: AP Boot Camps will be delivered through Canvas by successful AP teachers across the district. Students may register for AP Online Boot Camps using this link:
The AP Boot Camp is designed for high school students who have not yet taken an Advanced Placement (AP) course. The camp provides an opportunity for these students to develop an understanding of the AP curriculum and course expectations. Students will also be introduced to the skills that will be useful in their future AP courses, such as analyzing dense text, note-taking, efficient study skills, annotation, developing strong arguments, and evaluating sources.
