Friday, May 27, 2022

Please keep in mind that our last day of school is Wednesday, June 1st! We will follow our typical Wednesday schedule on that day, so students will be dismissed at 2:10 p.m.!! 

Field Day Update

  • VOLUNTEERS STILL NEEDED: We are still in need of volunteers for Field Day this Tuesday, May 31st!!! We especially need volunteers for game stations in the morning for our primary students.

    • 13 Volunteers are needed for the K-2 morning game stations.

    • 2 Volunteer opportunities are still available in the afternoon for intermediate game stations. 

Please click on the link to volunteer on the Field Day Sign-Up Genius!!! 

  • WAGONS NEEDED: Each class will need a wagon.  Please email Tracy Mylin at if you have a wagon we can borrow for the day. Wagons can be dropped off outside the front entrance of Grove at the volunteer tent starting at 6:15 a.m. on Tuesday morning. Please be sure to label wagons with your child’s first and last name so they can be returned!!! 

  • STUDENT DRESS for FIELD DAY: Please make sure your child is dressed appropriately for the weather on Tuesday. It is predicted to be hot on Tuesday, so students should be sure to wear lightweight clothing, bring a hat and/or sunglasses, and wear sunscreen. All students need to be wearing gym shoes on Tuesday!!! 

  • LUNCH for FIELD DAY: All students will be participating in a sack lunch on Tuesday. Lunch orders for a sack lunch from school were due today on the Google Form sent out to parents earlier this week. All students will be eating from 11:00-11:40 on Tuesday. 

Yearbook Update 

Unfortunately, the shipping on our yearbooks from TreeRing has been delayed. We are still hoping to receive the yearbooks before the end of the school year in order to pass them out to students next week, however, we will arrange for yearbook distribution in the summer if we do not receive them in time to pass out to students on Wednesday, June 1st. We will share more details as soon as we have them.

Grove Summer Study 

A letter with the details regarding our summer study expectations for students will be going out to parents on Wednesday, June 1st. We will also be sending home specific materials with students for this purpose on Wednesday, June 1st. Please be on the lookout for the materials being sent home with your child on the last day of school!! We will be asking students to complete both reading and math work over the course of the summer in order to keep their skills fresh!! 

School Supplies for the 2022-2023 School Year

Once again, the Grove office will be completing all of the ordering for school supplies for students at Grove for next year. In order to purchase your child's supplies for the 2022-2023 school year, we will charge every child $45.00 ($25.00 for half-day kindergarten).  We, in turn as a school, will do bulk purchasing through suppliers and warehouse stores.  This has been successful because:


1. We are better able to control the quality of the items we purchase. 

2. We will be able to purchase uniform items which contribute to instructional success.  For example, when a teacher is working on measurement with the class, it is much easier if everyone has the same ruler instead of eight different kinds.

3. We are able to reuse rather than replace school supply items like scissors, rulers, protractors, crayons, etc.  This is a cost-saving plan and cuts down on environmental waste.

Forty-five dollars ($25 for half-day kindergarten) will include the cost of all pencils, paper, pens, calculators, markers, crayons, rulers, scissors, notebooks, folders, Kleenex, paper towels, post-it notes, accordion folders, etc.

Parents will need to provide their child with a backpack, gym shoes, and lunch tote (optional).  If your child would like some special school supply items, that would still be an option for you to purchase on your own.

This fee can be found on your 2022/23 school fees in Infinite Campus starting on July 1st!
