We also need some additional volunteers for the Varsity game on Friday, 10-21-16, as we only have 4 out of 12 slots filled at this time.

ATTENTION ALL PARENTS AND SUPPORTERS OF G-R FINE ARTS STUDENTS (Art, Band, Choir, Drama, and Speech)
Did you know ALL GR students study the Fine Arts? Your child began his or her formal Fine Arts education in Kindergarten in Art and Music classes, though you likely exposed your child to the Fine Arts long before he/she entered school.
1. WE NEED YOUR HELP!
PLEASE log on to the following site to volunteer in concessions during an upcoming football game:
WE MUST HAVE 10-12 PEOPLE TO WORK EACH VARSITY GAME and we also need help with JV and Freshman games.
You don’t have to work a window and deal with money if you don't want to. WE HAVE JOBS FOR EVERYONE from wrapping hot dogs to popping popcorn. We would even love your help if you can only work pre-game or during half-time!
2. What is the Fine Arts Boosters and what do they do? Our Fine Arts Booster club provides extra funding to our Fine Arts teachers to help fill additional needs not covered within the school budget. One of our big purchases this year is a Music Library/Organizer to be shared by both the Choir and Band! We also donate money to the music trip which occurs every four years to help reduce the cost for the students. We are looking for new board members too so if you are interested or have questions, please contact, Dani Crozier (319) 464-5130.
Dear G-R Families: We are excited to have school start on Tuesday morning, 08-23-16!
