Grant Middle School

"Focusing on tomorrow...through learning today"

Principal's Note:

Welcome to Grant Middle School. I have been a member of this team for a quarter of a century. I am looking forward to this year with great enthusiasm and think we have an amazing year ahead. As a teacher, administrator, and a mother, I understand that the safety, education, and well-being of our children is essential. Please feel free to contact me at anytime during this school year with questions, concerns, or just general observations you want to share. Your input is valuable and needed. I hope you will find ways to continue to stay involved and active in your students educational journey. The PTO would love for you to join, we would love to have you visit during special events, and even though middle school students protest, continue to volunteer and be present.

Breakfast and Lunch

A local resident was so impressed with the 8th grade project that he called school and requested a flower for his yard.

"My wife designed and I constructed the two new additions . The butterfly and bumble bee are stained glass pieces that I made to make the three wooden flowers even more whimsical. Kudos to everyone at Grant Middle School who were involved in conceiving and implementing this 8th grade school project that has added pizzazz to the Fairview Heights community landscape!"
