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

***The Grady administration will be housed in trailer #2 for the summer. There are signs identifying it. The main phone number, 404.853.4000 will be operational.

***Interested in what goes on at Grady? Want to be in the know? Then get involved with the PTSA. That's what I did. I came to the monthly board meetings, I volunteered for a committee chair position (Teacher appreciation my first year and Secretary my second). I got involved, stayed informed and got to know Grady!

Now I am the PTSA President! Getting involved helped me to know my child's teachers, the principal (ask Dr Murray), staff, and the members of the PTSA. So get involved! It's the only way to be informed.

The Grady PTSA is looking for a few good parents to fill the following >committee chair positions:

  • Bylaws/Parliamentarian
  • Communications: Calendar( to compile dates from staff / PTSA etc.)
  • Knights Lights (Grady newsletter) Editor/Layout  Distribution
  • Fundraising: Volunteer Coordinator

If you are interested in helping out or would like more information, please contact Jane Modica, Grady PTSA President, at 404-876-2152 or jmodica@bellsouth.net

Being involved = being informed.
