Project Graduation
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.
