Grantfork News for the week of Dec. 24

Grantfork Elementary

Students are encouraged to write a story for the Young Authors Program during their Christmas break. For those that wish to participate, stories need to be turned in on or before Jan. 8, 2016.

The school Spelling Bee will begin on Friday, Jan. 8, 2016.

Parents should be aware that the Grantfork police have set up a substation at Grantfork Elementary School. The officers will have an office set up in the building. They will be at the school at random times through out the day. During these times, they will be doing paper work and filing reports. This will greatly benefit the safety of the students and faculty. Residents will be aware that the police car will be a common sight in front of the school, and there is no reason for alarm.

Grantfork UCC

The Christmas Eve candlelight service will be held at 5:30 on Dec. 24, and the Christmas morning worship will be at 9 a.m.

On Sunday, Dec. 27, there will be no Sunday school or confirmation.
