PTA Updates

Grady's Annual Storybook Parade will be on Thursday, October 31st. Teachers, staff and students are invited to dress in a costume depicting a favorite storybook character. Students are encouraged to carry the book that depicts the character they are wearing. 

The parade will begin at 8:15 a.m. The spectator viewing area is standing room only outside the school’s front office, along the car line area. Students will parade out the front office gate and walk along the sidewalk traveling East towards the Media Center. Starbucks has generously donated coffee for the Storybook Parade for spectators and 5th grade will have a donation based bake sale.  Make sure to bring cash if you would like a little morning treat for yourself! 

After the parade, school work will resume with planned literature based activities related to the storybook characters. If your child's costume would be uncomfortable to wear all day, he or she may change back into their school uniform. 

If your child needs help planning something to wear, just send a note to his/her homeroom teacher and assistance will be given. In planning your child's outfit, remember that according to school board policy, toy guns, toy swords or weapons of any kind cannot be brought to school. Also, please be aware that very scary costumes are not permitted.
