It Happened at Grier …

Before Winter Break, our 5th Graders received a visit from the Charlotte Checkers to discuss the science of hockey -- force and motion.  Also, the importance of good nutrition for power play!

As a result of reaching our target of selling 1,600 books at the Book Fair, Mr. Maleck had to pay his forfeit of being duct-taped to the Media Center wall and reading a book to every class!

Thank you to everyone who supported the Book Fair - it was a huge success! We exceeded our target of 1,600 books and so we are pleased to introduce ... Drogon, the Library Dragon! Stop by the Media Center to say hello and welcome him to Grier!

Pay only $5 per block and leave your mark on our school ... forever!!
