Welcome to Grand Ridge Grade School
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.

Senior Lunch Program
Senior Lunch was Thursday November 19th! You can see from our pictures that we had a good crowd and the students enjoyed singing songs of Thanksgiving and reciting poems to the seniors. Thank you to Mrs. Sanders who has worked so hard to provide entertainment for the senior lunches. It adds a lot of fun and excitement to see what our children are learning in our school. The month of December will be here shortly.......make sure you call to reserve your spot for lunch next month!!
Donations being accepted for the Grand Ridge Emergency Fund
Every year the Grand Ridge Emergency Fund organizers partner with the school to ensure that needy families recieve a Thanksgiving basket and presents at Christmas time. We appreciate all the GR Emergency Fund does to support the families in our district, and we ask that you continue to show your support through your kind donations. Financial donations may be submitted to our office as well, and we will pass the basket at our holiday concerts as we have done in the past. Thank you for all you do to help out.
Thanksgiving with the Kindergarten.
On Tuesday, several adults were invited to Mrs. Schrik's classroom to join our indians and pilgrims for a fine feast celebrating Thanksgiving. Our pictures above show the meal and all the fun that was had during the class time. Mrs. Schrik and Mrs. Thompson helped the students churn their own butter and make homemade applesauce. There was turkey and dressing (or stuffing, depending on where you grew up), and a cookie for desert. Thank you to the teachers and students for their hard work. We wish everyone a safe and happy Thanksgiving from Grand Ridge Grade School!
Grand Ridge Grade School hosted our annual Veterans' Day ceremony on November 10th. We had several veterans representing the 4 branches of service, Army, Navy, Airforce, and Marines. The choir and band presented songs in their honor, as well as musical selections performed by the elementary K-4 and 5th grade choir. The students sounded fantastic under the direction of Mrs. Sanders and Mrs. Makeever. Thank you also to all the teachers and students who provided cards, artwork, video segments for the slide show, and all the other items collected that day. It goes to show that important lessons are taught and learned outside the regular curriculum that will impact children for the rest of their lives.
Some of the comments we heard from veterans that day were, "We just love to see the kids being patriotic and remembering what the day is about." Another comment, "So glad you kept it up-beat and positive." And that is what the day was, up-beat and positive. We celebrated our freedom that is provided for us through the lives and deaths of the men and women in uniform. Grand Ridge Grade School is happy to provide what we can in appreciation of our Verterans.
