We are excited to announce that we will be having a food drive to gather donations for the local food pantry! Each grade level will be competing against each other to see who can bring in the most food items! The grade level with the most food items will earn an EXTRA RECESS. We will begin this Friday, December 1, and it will last until Friday, December 15. Let's get ready to rumble...for a great cause! 🥰

Our students had a hands-on experience with several Native American artifacts that were once used by the Native Americans who lived on Arkansas. So cool! Thank you, Rogers Historical Museum!

Thank you to our local Veterans and Police Chief, Skaggs, for coming to our Veterans Day Assembly! Also a huge thank you to our GMS Band and Choir students for providing your assistance! If you missed the live stream, we will be uploading it to the Gravette School District YouTube channel soon. This was our first time trying something like this, so we thank you for your patience and understanding with our live stream hiccups 🥰 Great job, lions!
On November 10th, at 1:15 p.m., parents and guardians are invited to join us online for the live stream of our Veteran's Day assembly. This assembly will include GDE and GUE. There will also be a guest speaker from our very own Gravette PD! Because of space constraints, we are not able to allow parents to attend in person this year. However, we will have a live stream available for anyone who would like to attend. Click here to watch: https://www.youtube.com/@gravetteyt2297
