MARK YOUR CALENDARS & GET IN THE SPIRIT

****Don't miss the Grady Tail gate BBQ Sept 6. Everyone is invited to the pre-game tail-gate BBQ, 3:30 - 5:30PM on the front Lawn. Dinner tickets $5 (includes chicken or pork bbq sandwich, coleslaw, beans and potato salad with ice tea). Don't miss this event, you will be sorry.

****This year, the PTSA would like to do a better job of acknowledging our students' achievements. To do this we would like to include student success items in the Grady Gram and the Knight Lights.  Parents, students and teachers, please help our Grady community know such things as nominees for the Governor's Honors program, inductees into the Beta Club or science fair winners.  Our students are doing great things.  Please help us to acknowledge their successes.

You may submit articles directly to the Grady Gram by emailing Terry Kearns at Gradyproject@aol.com.  The Grady Gram is sent every Friday so you should have your information to him by Thursday morning.  Send articles to the Knight Lights to Carol Senf at carol.senf@lcc.gatech.edu.   The deadline for the next issue is Friday, August 30. If you would prefer, you may send your information to Beth Thornton at atlantaept@oaol.com or call her at 404.872.4002.  She will write the information up and submit it for publication.

Would you please add the following information to Grady Grams for the
month of September? (Can you keep it running throughout September?)

"The Interact Club wants your help! We welcome donations of travel size toiletries, small items for infants (pacifiers, socks, washcloths, etc.), and school/art supplies for preschoolers and elementary age students
(small size items, please). These items are being placed in welcome boxes for residents at the Genesis Shelter. The shelter serves women and children and helps them get a fresh start. Please send all items to Ms. Whitten in Room 302.

The Interact Club also needs parent drivers to take students to the Atlanta Community Food Bank and Project Open Hand. Directions will be provided. Parents may accompany students at the service sites or may
simply drop off and pick up. Activities take place on the second and
fourth Wednesdays of each month between 4 and 7:30 p.m.  For more
information or to express interest in driving, call Ms. Whitten at (404)
296-2261. We can't do it without you!"
