***Latest plans and schedule for the renovations to the Grady High School campus. A meeting of the Atlanta Public Schools Departments, Grady High School and the community has been scheduled for Wednesday November 13, 2002 at 3:45 PM at the Grady High School Media Center located at Charles Allen building on the Grady High School campus (929 Charles Allen Drive).

The purpose of this meeting is to provide you the opportunity to see the latest plans and schedule for the renovations to the Grady High School campus. Your participation will be most valuable to the success of this process.

If you have questions or comments, please call Charlie Kirk, Grady Renovation Project manager at 404.330.4209 ext. 19.

***Senior Knight - Nov 8 vs Union Grove at halftime -- volunteers also needed to assemble gift bags, balloons, and participants for program. Sarah Chaffin: boyzmom5487@msn.com

***The Health Occupations Students of America (HOSA) is sponsoring a blood drive for our community and school on Friday November 22, 2002.  Please help to make this a successful drive.  You may sign up to give blood with any HOSA member or come by room 108.  We will have a table near the front office with a HOSA member to sign up interested individuals starting November 1st.

***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 receive a Pizza Party! Thanks for your continued support!
