 Newspaper Club

Meet Tuesdays right after school 

Class Code: qqynbu5

 In the Grant School Newspaper Club, students report on the latest news that is interesting and relevant to their age group! Writers contribute their research and ideas to a variety of sections to make the "Grant Gazette" a must-read for all fifth and sixth graders: School News, Community News, Entertainment News, Fashion Trends, Sports, Issue Overviews, Recipes, Horoscopes, "Teacher Feature," Puzzles, and Comic Strips. Look for the latest edition of the Grant Gazette to be posted on the school website shortly! The club generally meets on Tuesdays.

 Student Council

Advisor: Mrs. Basile, mbasile@spboe.org
(Information will be provided to all students regarding elections.)

 Student Council is an organization that allows students to contribute to the Grant School community, as well as the South Plainfield community. Students work together collaboratively to plan school events, complete projects, and help others.  

 Student Council consists of homeroom representatives (one representative from each of the fifth and sixth grade homerooms). The homeroom representatives volunteer for their position and are voted in during their homeroom class.  

Student Council focuses on building citizenship within our school and community. We also do activities to build character in other areas, including respect, fairness, responsibility, trustworthiness, and caring. Projects are intended to focus on these pillars of character.  Examples of these projects are the “Giving Tree”, writing letters to soldiers, Food Drives, and other activities related to community service.

Student council we meet twice  a month and then an additional two times a month for school wide activities.

Drama Club

Advisors: Ms. Eichert, seichert@spboe.org

Mrs. Stasio, jstasio@spboe.org

Ms. Gorman, agorman@spboe.org

Ms. Maddolin, smaddolin@spboe.org

 This club welcomes all students interested in theater and dramatic arts. Members improve their craft by participating in theater games, improvisations, and performing dramatic scenes and monologues. The club generally stars in January and will meet several times a week.

 Ski Club

 Updates will be provided on this later in the year.
