New Kiser and Future Vision for Grimsley/Kiser Campus
Saturday’s School Board Retreat shared architectural renderings for the new Kiser and a site location analysis.  Based on the site analysis, the recommended placement for the new Kiser is on GHS baseball and softball fields with a proposal to build new baseball and softball fields where Brooks is currently (Brooks will be rebuilt on the former Craven site by the Greensboro Arboretum).  The presentation included a long-term vision for the entire complex. This presentation is in the first half of the meeting. Here is the link - you will have to scroll back to toward the beginning of the meeting:

Shoes worn with dresses should be black, blue, tan or white dress shoes (no bright colors, no tennis shoes, boots, loafers, flip-flops or casual sandals). Be mindful of the height of your heels.  You will have to walk up and down stairs.  Save the 4+ inch heels for another event.

Best All-Around Male and Female Graduate 
Each year, the senior class votes on the Best All-Around Male and Female of the class.  It is the most prestigious award given at Senior Awards.  It is a serious award and needs to be treated as such.   Be thinking about your votes for the one male and one female who best represents Grimsley High School’s Class of 2022. Voting will take place in the Spring.
