Grenada School District will earn its first-ever A rating for its performance in the 2021-22 school year when the Mississippi State Board of Education approves official grades for Mississippi schools and districts on Thursday, September 29.

Superintendent Dr. David Daigneault announced the news to the district at a special live streamed event on Tuesday morning. The gathering in the circle outside Grenada Elementary 4-5 was attended by staff and students from grades 3-5 and featured entertainment by Pizzazz Show Choir, the Grenada Band drumline, and the GHS cheerleaders. 

The Grenada High School entrance

Grenada High School has instituted a new block schedule for the 2022-23 school year. Instead of the traditional seven periods per day, GHS students will attend classes in four blocks. Principal Emily Tindall thoroughly researched block scheduling and found many advantages before the policy took effect. “One significant benefit of a block schedule is that students will go from having up to seven classes — all of which they have to study for, do homework for, take tests — to four classes. At most, five.” Tindall said that not only will the new schedule be less stressful for students, it will benefit teachers as well. “They’re going from teaching 140-150 students a day to teaching 70-75 a day,” she said. “It allows for deeper learning and more project-based, discovery learning.”

Students wait to pour dirt into clay pots

The Green Top Summer Camps are held each year for students entering fourth and fifth grade. The camps were held in June at GES 4-5. The theme for this year’s camp was gardening. Students explored the idea of plants and community at two sessions focused on a different area of academics.

The Reading Camp, led by Green Top ELA specialist Pam Briscoe, incorporated readings about plants and included a visit to the community garden. The Math and Science Camp carried on the theme of gardening, alternating between small-group sessions with math specialist Lisa Jordan and science specialist Sherry Cook. Students used math concepts to design a garden and science concepts to grow hydroponic plants. 

Parent Teacher Outreach

GHS Principal Emily Tindall wanted to create a parent-teacher group to encourage more community interaction. She tapped local banker Terry Lane to head up the new GHS Parent Teacher Outreach, which will be out signing up parents and community members at the GHS Meet-the-Teacher event on Tues., Aug. 3.
