Announcements *****************

***On Wednesday Jan 22, the 10th street parking lot gates were locked briefly at 3:30PM to confine and detain a reported trespasser who was driving recklessly in the Grady parking lot. The person was apprehended and found to be a non-Grady teenager. The reckless driving activity had been reported several times in the past by parents who were picking up students and other individuals from the Grady community. On Tuesday, the fact that a parent reported the incident and school administration was able to respond immediately, enabled police to confront this individual and take the necessary steps to hopefully prevent this from happening again.

Please explain to your students that this type of behavior will not be tolerated. It will be reported to authorities and steps will be taken to stop this type of activity or any other illegal activity on Grady property. It is important we get the word out to the students. It is important that we, as adults, report to school administrators any inappropriate activities we witness on Grady property. We must also be the eyes and ears for the Grady community, to protect our students and provide a safe environment.

Thanks, Diane Terrell

***The Interact Club will be holding a book sale to raise money for the African Library Project, which is helping to build a library in Rwanda. So that we can raise as much money as possible for the project, the Interact Club is asking for book donations. Although all donations will be greatly appreciated, classic, children, mystery, health-related, reference, and how-to books are ideal. Donations can be sent to Ms. Whitten's room, room #302 through March. Thank you!

*** Magnet Coffee will be held on January 23rd at 7:00 p.m. in the media center. Since the size of this event has grown, we can no longer comfortably fit in a home. This is an informative meeting to provide prospective parents of eighth graders with details about the Communication Magnet. Flyers have gone to all of the middle schools. Parents with students in private schools may appreciate getting information about the coffee from their neighbors.

***Grady's Athletic Banquet will be held on May 9 at 6 PM at the Holiday Inn Select in Decatur

***The Health Occupations Students of America (HOSA) is sponsoring a coat and blanket drive to run through January.  Please send coats and/or blankets to Grady High, Room 108.  Your generosity will be appreciated by those in need of warmth this cold winter.
