What's New at Grant

Grant Scholastic Book Fair
Scholastic Book Fair
On September 28th through the 30th Grant School students were invited to visit the Scholastic Book Fair. Students shopped until they dropped! They were excited to see books written by their favorite authors as well as newly released books. It was great to see so many smiling faces as they left the gymnasium eager to return to their classrooms and read their new books. Teachers were also on the lookout for students who were “caught” reading. If a student was caught reading, their name was submitted into a raffle for a free book. Congratulations to our two winners, Nicholas Fernandez and Mila Dunn. A big thank you to the PTA for supporting our students’ love of reading by bringing the book fair to our school.

4th of July Parade Float
July 4th Float
Happy Fourth of July! This year all three Ridgefield Park Elementary Schools participated together in the traditional town Fourth of July Parade. It was a great way to really kick off the summer season in true RP fashion. After overcoming many challenges this year, the theme of the 2021 float was, “We’re In This Together.” Members from all three PTA’s worked together to make this fun and colorful project come to life. Students and PTA board members from all of the elementary schools rode on their impressive creation while waving to the crowds, blowing bubbles and energetically dancing to great music. A great time was had by all!

Grant School Promotion Celebration
Kindergarten and Sixth Grade Promotions
On June 16th, Grant School hosted the Kindergarten and Sixth Grade Promotion Ceremonies. For the first time, the ceremonies were hosted outside on Henry Street in front of the school. Families were invited to come and cheer their children on for this joyous occasion. This year both the kindergarteners and sixth graders incorporated sign language into their ceremony. Kindergarten students signed the song A You’re Adorable by Perry Como and the sixth graders signed Somewhere Over the Rainbow while a recording of Eric Clapton played in the background. Best wishes to our sixth graders as they enter middle school. Sixth Grade Class of 2021, please remember that you will always be part of the Grant School Family!
