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.

Lead Testing Completed

Attached in this weeks newsletter you will find information regarding our lead testing process at the school.  We recently purchased new faucets and fixtures for the elementary side of the building in many classrooms and workspaces.  In January we had our fixtures and water tested and those new areas are safe to drink.  In those locations we have removed the signs that had been posted previously.  Thank you to our custodial staff for getting that done!  Good work guys!
