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.
Grand Ridge Dedication
On October 23, 2016 we hosted a dedication ceremony at the grade school. We know some were unable to attend the event, so we have uploaded the video to youtube and you may access it here. https://youtu.be/b11OOSRp0V8 (apologies for the sound quality, it was quite windy that day.) We appreciate the efforts of the Grand Ridge Community, Mayor Hines, Rep. Skoog, and Senator Rezin, as well as the Grand Ridge Board of Education and the local Trades under the direction of Lance Yednock for all of the help they provided during the building project. Thanks also to Vissering Construction and Matt Lamps from Basaly Cary and Alstadt Architects in Ottawa, IL. Thanks to Danchris Nursery in Streator for their landscaping work for the main entrance, and to the many tradesmen and women who volunteered hours to help. We also appreciate the hard work of the teachers and staff who had to deal with schedule changes, interuptions, and delays, and yet were still able to provide our kids with the quality education we are known for. It truly takes cooperation from many people to achieve great things, and we couldn't do it without everyone working together.
