Hi Terry,
Can you put in the GradyGram a thanks to all who helped with the HomeComing

Toothpaste and Spanish Books Needed! Ms. Whitten's world geography classes will be sending a care package of toothpaste and Spanish Books to their Peace Corps volunteer in Paraguay,  South America before Thanksgiving. Please help us fill the package by donating tubes of toothpaste and Spanish language books for children and teens.

Help Grady Families: The Interact Club and the Student Government
Association are teeming up to provide needy members of the Grady Community with Thanksgiving boxes. Each box will contain a turkey, bread, dressing, fresh vegetables, and canned goods. You can help by providing canned/dry goods for the Canned Food Drive going on November  4-20. We hope to collect enough canned goods for the Thanksgiving boxes as well as for the 11-Alive Can-A-Thon. Please send your canned goods through your child or send to the attention of Ms. Whitten in the main office. Boxes for canned goods will be in each homeroom and the homeroom that collects
the most cans will recieve a Pizza Party! Thanks for your continued support!
