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.
Happy 100th Birthday, Beverly Cleary!
As a tribute to the author, Beverly Cleary, our fourth grade classes read some of her entertaining novels. You may remember some of these titles from your childhood, The Mouse and the Motorcycle, Ramona Quimby, Age 8, and Henry and Beezus. The students created birthday cards with letters of appreciation and illustrations. What an inspiration Mrs. Cleary has been through her humorous stories of children and all of the predicaments they can experience! What great life lessons!
