Grove Warrior Dash: NEW DATE - April 29, 2022

First and foremost, we have been blown away with everyone’s generosity! Our Grove families are truly amazing. Your dedication to making this Warrior Dash a success is greatly appreciated! Our fundraising window has officially closed.


Due to rain in the forecast, the Warrior Dash was moved to next Friday, April 29th!! Our goal is to hold the Warrior Dash outside so the students can experience an amazing day filled with obstacle courses, bubbles, balloons and teamwork! Parents are encouraged to make signs/posters for their children and come cheer them on. The more parents that come the more exciting this will be for the students! Look at the schedule below to see when your child will be participating. Please note, the times are subject to change if the event needs to be held inside.
