PTO NEWS

We have some wonderful parents leading our PTO here at GRMS. However, they could certainly use more support/assistance. There are also needs for officers in the roles of Vice-President and Secretary. It would also be wonderful if someone could step into the role of Volunteer and/or Fundraising Coordinator. If interested or just want to learn more, please contact Ms. Norris or Ms. Guernon at: [email protected] or [email protected] . Thank you for considering becoming an active member of the GRMS PTO!

Parent/Guardian,

All students will be eligible for Free Breakfast and Lunch until September 20.

This period will allow for families to complete registrations. Below is a copy of the message sent in recent weeks, which includes a link to the application. 

Many parents have had Free and Reduced Lunch applications mailed to their residence. According to the district office, you should have already received this correspondence. If not, you may use this link to check for eligibility: https://www.stjohns.k12.fl.us/food/free/  This completed application may be turned in at the school office at which point we will send it to the district office. It is important that the form be completed in a timely manner to avoid a gap in your student’s eligibility for assistance. 

 We ask that you not drop students off at school prior to 7:00AM
