    My son and now my daughter have attended Griggs Elementary and it's an awesome school. I wish the Middle and High School were as involved with the parents as Griggs is.

    Griggs is a wonderful school that has been around for generations. Its actually such a great school that many who were students have returned as teachers! Recent budget cutbacks have affected us as well....unfortunately at this time we are unable to afford a Full Time Nurse! This award would make that possible as well as many other things....Please consider Griggs when selecting a truly deserving school!
