Penny Wars Helps Ms. Hunter

As most of you know, Kelsey Hunter, our elementary P.E. teacher is battling cancer. The PTO began Penny Wars as a new fundraiser this year, and in partnership with school staff, chose to donate all proceeds to Ms. Hunter.

Throughout the wars, the students had fun learning the art of sabotage and how different forms of money would affect their overall total. Our students competed by grade to see who could collect the most money with 5th grade winning collecting a total of $1,219.86.

With the amazing support and contributions from our great community we were able to raise $6,316.40 for Ms. Hunter! Thank you so much for your continued support in making The Grove the heart of our community.

Elder Grove Students Learn CPR

All of Mrs. Miller's Health classes learned Hands Only CPR on Tuesday, January 14th. Mrs. Miller feels it is important that every student has an opportunity to learn this life saving technique.  To that end, last year she wrote a grant request to the Elder Grove PTO for 30 CPR mannekins. This was the first time the new mannekins were used at Elder Grove! Over one hundred students learned hands only CPR in one day!

You can watch this video - Elder Grove Students Learn CPR to see the students in action! We are very proud of each of them!

At Elder Grove we say that Outlaws are respectful, responsible, and safe! What better way to teach that than to give them the skill to save a life!
