The Grove Grizzly
A big THANK YOU to all of our families who demonstrated their appreciation for our staff this week through participation in our PTO’s Teacher Appreciation Week activities!! Our staff definitely felt loved this week through the outpouring of special treats, kind words, and thoughtful notes! We are so lucky to have such great parents and community members to partner with us each day! Also, a SPECIAL THANK YOU to everyone who was involved in the renovation of the staff lounge! It has been transformed into such a beautiful space for our staff! I cannot begin to express both the excitement and gratitude that our staff feels for this special gift!
We are getting excited for our upcoming Field Day this Friday, May 17th!! Please see the official letter with details for the day!

We are in need of more than 100 volunteers to help with our
Second Annual Grove Avenue School Field Day
on Friday, May 17th.  
Volunteer HERE!! 

Please note that a rain date has been set for Friday, May 24th.  The success of this program depends on our volunteers!  We had a great first year field day, so lets recreate that experience for our kids again this year.  
You may volunteer for the entire day, and we hope many of you will.  If you are a room parent in the morning session, you may only run a game or treat station in the afternoon.  All room parent helpers will need to stay with their assigned class for lunch from 11-11:40 am.  Each class will need a wagon.  Please email if you have a wagon we can borrow for the day. 
We are so grateful for all that you do for all our children! Thank you!! Thank you!!     

Best Regards,  
Grove Avenue PTO

Volunteers Needed!
5th Grade Farewell
    We need your help to give the 5th graders a memorable send off to middle school! We are looking for parent volunteers to help hang decorations and arrange food donations from 1pm-3pm on Thursday, May 30th. Historically, 4th grade parents help out the night of the event. If interested, we would need help from 5:30pm-9:00pm. Thank you to those parents who have already volunteered. If you would like to help, please contact Tasia Remi at, Elena at or Page at
