Our Vision

In partnership with our families and community, Grand Ridge CCSD #95 will educate all students to reach their highest potential.  Grand Ridge will provide a safe learning environment, will respond to students' individual learning and emotional needs, and will maintain high expectations for achievement.  Our goal is to develop students who are responsible, respectful, kind, and passionate for life-long learning. 

Student-of-the-Quarter

In the past years, we have had many "Student of the Month" winners.  This year we have changed this award.  It will now be called "Student of the Quarter".  Teachers will submit 1 winner per grade level once per quarter.  This quarter the teachers were looking for a student that exemplified "RESPONSIBILITY".

The following students were selected to represent each grade level:

Ms. Bienemann's room          Oliver Kearfott

Mrs. Sanders                          Emma Trumbo

Kindergarten                           Ruby Dittmer

1st Grade                                Kaleigh Rafferty

2nd Grade                              Caleb Marke

3rd Grade                               Katherine Bressner

4th Grade                               Steven Hladovcak

5th Grade                               Michael Mills

6th Grade                               Hannah Galletti

7th Grade                               Jaelyn Blakemore

8th Grade                               Jenna Anderson

Thank You and Congratulations for being so RESPONSIBLE this quarter!

Message from the Office

ATTENTION!!! Please notifiy the Office if you have an address change or phone number change.  If there is ever an emergency it's important to keep all records current.

Welcome to TeacherEase!

We have implemented a new computer system that replaces Skyward.  TeacherEase will allow you to view your students Grades, Assignments, Lunch Balances and Attendance.  It will also allow the school to be able to send broadcast announcements to you as well as be able to communicate with any of the staff directly.

To be able to log into TeacherEase, you need to have an email address.  If you have not supplied us with an email address, please contact the office and we will set you up in TeacherEase.

If you are having trouble locating or maneuvering in TeacherEase, please do not hesitate to contact the office, we will help you.

Important Changes to our monthly Breakfast and Lunch Menus

Beginning in January, we will no longer print a paper copy of the monthly lunch menu.  We will now load our lunch menu into TeacherEase.  We will still continue to print each week in the newsletter the weekly menu but will no longer be publishing a monthly calendar.  We are working on getting the notification system up and running to let you know by email if changes have happened with the menu.

To view the menu in TeacherEase, you will want to be on the main page of the parent’s portal page.  Click on the drop down for the miscellaneous tab and select menus.  This will bring up the current months breakfast and lunch.  We will continue to keep the website updated with the lunch menu as well.

If you have any questions, please contact the office.

Lunch with your student

Grand Ridge Grade School invites you to have lunch with your child.  Each grade level has been assigned a month for parents/guardians to enjoy lunch with their child.  In order to have enough space, we ask that you choose only one time during the assigned month to dine with your child.

If you wish to eat lunch with your child, please send a note to school by the morning of the day you wish to visit.  We kindly ask that you bring a sack lunch for yourself.  We ask that you do not bring food from restaurants into the school, as this will upset your child’s classmates.  Also, we ask that this special invitation is for parents or legal guardians only.  We cannot accommodate extended family members during the lunch hour as space is limited.  Your child’s lunch is exactly 20 minutes.  Parents must sign in at the office and then will be escorted to the multi-purpose room where the lunch is served.  You will meet your child at his or her lunch table.

We hope that many parents can take advantage of the opportunity to see their child during the school day and can experience a typical day in the lunchroom.
