Happy 2nd week of school!  Hopefully everyone is starting to get their routines down.

Select the circle button that says: “Order Fall portraits here”
Select “South Elementary School-Grandville” from the school drop down

You will need the Web Code for South which is 1946QZOPGSGAZL
Then enter your info, and choose your package, and pay right online. Your child wont have to remember any forms or checks tomorrow!

Tuesday August 29th is Open House from 6pm-7pm.    This is for 1st thru 6th grade.  There is no set program or agenda, so stop by when you can and see your students classroom, meet their teacher, and see anything they want to show you!

Wednesday August 30th is the last day to purchase tickets for the Kindergarten Tailgate event at Grandville High School on Thursday August 31st.  There are tickets available in the school office, $5 each or $20 for family.  You can read more about the event HERE

No School Friday September 1st & Monday September 4th, Have a great long Labor Day weekend!

Our biggest fundraiser event The Annual Walk-A-Thon is coming up on Friday September 8th.  Students will walk laps with their class during the school day.  The PTC will give each student a snow cone upon completion! We could use some help with the Snow Cones if you have some time to spare, sign up HERE!  If every student is able to raise $50, we will hit our funding goal for the school year!
The Info sheet, rules and pledge forms are available here and were also sent home in Friday folders! Walk a Thon info SheetWalk a thon Rules, and Walk a Thon pledge Form

The Free Family BBQ is that night from 4:30pm-7pm.  Each family member will receive a free hot dog, chips and a drink as a thank you from the PTC for a successful fundraiser!  We will have fun inflatable for the evening too!  We could use help at the event, sign up HERE! 

The Important Dates flyer came home this past Thursday and we are working on adding a few more things still.  Look for an updated copy to come home in another week or two.  I will post here once it is ready!  We are also looking into the possibility of changing the Vendor & Consignment Sale date.  Since our original date falls on a long weekend, we may move it up into late September.  You’d be able to rent a booth space for a Saturday  during the sale and sell your gently used kids clothing/toys, or if you’re a vendor, you could sell your products!  Look for more information to post very soon!

Also, I’m working on a fundraiser of Grandville clothing and items.  I hope to have sample sizing in the next few weeks and orders available later this fall to arrive before winter break.

Since we have so many new families joining us now, I thought it best to remind everyone of the easy no cost ways to raise funds for our school!

  • Send in full receipts from Family Fare/Spartan Stores for their Direct Your Dollars program.
  • When you shop online, use, its the exact same as but a portion of eligible purchases come back to the PTC when you select “Grandville Parent Support Organizations Parents-Teachers-Children S Element” as your charity of choice!  Learn more HERE!
  • Download the BoxTops App and save your BoxTops!  We will be doing a classroom competition for the next submission deadline this fall!  Details and forms will be coming home soon.
  • Sign up and download the ShopARoo App and snap pictures of your receipts!
  • The Papergator in the back of the large parking lot accepts newspapers, magazine, phone books, catalogs and office paper.  Drop in some paper after you drop off your kids!

Also, new this year is 5 Griffins hockey fundraiser nights!  The first one is in November!  You can buy tickets at a reduced cost and a portion of the proceeds come back to South!  So its a win-win!  This will come home in a few weeks, but if you want to peek at it now, heres the first flyer! Grandville South Nov 5
