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.

Picture Retakes:

Picture Retakes will be Monday, March 8th.

Lunch Updates:

With all the changes going on we have some people asking questions about our procedures with lunches at school.  We have been in contact with the State of Illinois through our procedures with lunches at school.  We have been in contact with the State of Illinois through ISBE and our Regional Office to make sure the lunch plan in place is meeting all the standards.  This is a challenging time because the details of these programs change constantly; but for now we want to provide for you some consistency.  Here is the process we will use:

  1. Menus will continue to be made available weekly and parents will sign up their student(s) for the entire week afterward.  So if you sign up for meals, you will get them for the whole week.
  2. If your child does not like a certain element of the lunch provided, you will have one of two options:  you may send a sack lunch on that day and the student can eat what they want from each lunch, or don ot sign up for the free lunches that week.
  3. Because we are offering free lunches for everyone, it is still important for our staff to know within a fair amount of certainty how much food needs to be ordered.  By following these guidelines, we are able to provide lunches for everyone who needs them.

Reminder:  March 3rd is an 11:50 a.m. dismissal

Art is Back!

We have begun going into K-5 classrooms teaching art and I don’t know who is more excited, the students or myself?!?! This would be a great time to freshen supplies like crayons, markers and colored pencils. I am noticing that many kids are lacking these supplies. You may also want to double check with your students to see if they have scissors. Please let me know if you have any questions. You can always drop me an email at shinne@grgs95.org.

GRGS PTO Book Fair:

The GRGS Spring Book Fair will be held at the Grand Ridge Community Hall.  The fair is open to everyone in the community so tell your friends and family.  The students love shopping for new books and this is also a great way to support our school.  The more sales we have, the more our school will benefit.  30-50% of all sales will go right back into new books for our classrooms and library!
