Welcome to the Grissom PTSA!
We encourage all Grissom parents, teachers and students to join the PTSA and become actively involved in the school and the educational experience at Grissom.
A letter from our president:
Dear Grissom Parents,
Where have all the years at Grissom gone? As we get ready to depart this building at the end of the 2017 school year, we all cherish so many sweet memories. But before we say goodbye to this facility PTSA plans to have an amazing year.
On January 27, 1967, the Apollo I mission ended tragically, thus honoring our high school with the name Virgil I. “Gus” Grissom. Our namesake will be remembered in January 2017 with the 50th anniversary of this unfortunate accident. PTSA is planning to host an event for the alumni and their families and is looking for alumni to assist with this upcoming function. We would love to have a former Grissom student from each previous graduating class.
Grissom PTSA received the PTA School of Excellence in the fall of 2016 and continues with the application of the Blue Ribbon School. Grissom was awarded a top 500 high school in America by Newsweek. Grissom also won the outstanding teacher, administrator, support personnel and volunteer of the year at the Huntsville Council of PTA banquet this past spring.
Grissom PTSA has proud parents, terrific teachers, super students and a connected community. Grissom PTSA appreciates your volunteer support, membership and donations. Please take a minute and join PTSA or make a donation. PTSA is a good steward of these gifts and uses them to promote our school and community. Remember, IF YOU DO MAKE A DONATION YOUR COMPANY MAY MATCH IT.
Please follow Grissom PTSA on Twitter, Facebook and our weekly newsletter, Tiger Tale. We want all to be included and informed and share the great happenings that are taking place at Grissom High School. Be sure to see the enclosed calendar of upcoming events. PTSA hosts one event per month and wants all to feel included with each monthly event open to everyone.
We are so excited to see this upcoming school year begin and to have the halls filled with our future leaders of our community and our country!
