Dear Granite Park families,
We had a great week last week honoring veterans in our community and seeing our school play. Congratulations to our drama students who did such an amazing job. Pictures of the play Veterans Day videos are posted on our Twitter page https://twitter.com/GraniteParkJHS.
SPIRIT WEEK: This week is our Fall Spirit Week, hosted by our Latinos in Action students. Students and staff are encouraged to participate along with each day’s theme, earning their house points. Points will be tabulated by their Den teachers and on Thursday after Den, we will announce the winning house. This house will get to have a fun activity Thursday during 5B. A lengthy explanation was given this morning during our YouTube announcements. Here is a brief summary of the weekly Spirit Week schedule of competitions:
