We had a great first week of school at Grove! We enjoyed welcoming back our students and getting to know many new students! The Grove Grizzly Mascot - GROVER - greeted students outside in the mornings and then visited classrooms this week to deliver a special Grove bracelet from our PTO! 

Grove Parent Curriculum Night 

Our staff is eager to share details about the school year and each of their unique classrooms with you on Thursday, September 15th at Grove’s Parent Curriculum Night, beginning at 6:30 p.m.  At this time, you will have an opportunity to get to know your child’s teacher, visit the classroom, and receive an overview of the grade- level curriculum and classroom expectations. We will start the evening in the gym, during which time I will introduce the entire Grove Staff and share additional information about the year. We view this evening as an important opportunity to communicate with parents, and we look forward to seeing you there. Please note that this event is for parents only.
