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.

SPOTLIGHT ON SCIENCE SUCCESSES 

Congratulations to Anthony Walter, Riley Killian, Ethan Chapman, and Nick Angus who represented Grand Ridge at the State Science Fair on May 14 at Millikin University.

Also congratulations to William Beach, Randi Heth, Taalor Allen, Anthony Mulinazzi, Aly Utegg, Taylor Nagy, Jacob Black, Sterling Parks, Jimmy Tredway, Jason Houch, Ethan Ohlendorf and Zach Grubbs who received certificates and a monetary prize from the LaSalle County Farm Bureau.  These students completed a Sciene Fair project that dealt with some form of agriculture and were awarded for their research and scientific exploration.  Congratualtions again and it's wonderful to see our young adolescents taking an interest in the field of agriculture.

All incoming kindergarten students must have a dental, physical and eye examination prior to the first day of school. The physical exam must include proof of immunizations and lead and diabetes screenings.

Summer Food Service Program

Due to state and federal mandates, our district must notify you of the Summer Food Service Program sponsored by the state.  This program is for needy families requiring meal assistance through the summer months.  Our district does not meet the requirements for having to offer the services on site.  If you would like to view a list of schools participating, or learn more information, please visit the Illinois State Board of Education site at http://www.isbe.state.il.us/nutrition/htmls/summer.htm
