Grant students are able to appreciate the importance of demonstrating their PARRT by doing their personal best, being active listeners, responsible, respectful and trustworthy.
A number of co-curricular and enrichment opportunities are available for students that attend Grant Elementary. Besides the District’s gifted and talented program, students also have the opportunity to participate in Spanish for our kindergarten through third grade students. Other activities are offered as well, such as, before school intramurals, After School Enrichment activities and Eastern Iowa Arts Academy opportunities.
The Grant community is very supportive of the work that we do at our school. Our PTA offers many positive experiences which include: extra-curricular field trip opportunities, funding for special school projects, and teaming up with our building leadership team to offer reading and math nights. They also provide social events for our families. We have active Boy Scout and Girl Scout troops who support the mission of our school. Our School + Community Partners, Bank Iowa, Western Fraternal and IMON, provide volunteers to help students with reading and math skills. A neighborhood church will be providing after school homework and game nights to students in the future.
Grant was built in 1961 and originally served a Kindergarten through 6th grade population. It closed in 1987 due to declining enrollment but reopened in 1990 as one of two District early childhood centers. In the fall of 2012, Grant became an elementary school, serving Kindergarten through 5th grade.
