  • SENIOR ALL NIGHT PARTY UPDATE

    The SANP committee is working together to figure out if we can hold a SANP. Typically, it is held the night after graduation on June 6th. Due to Covid we are waiting to see what the restrictions will be in June. If we do not end up having an in-person party, we are working on some fun alternatives for our seniors. We still need help with Senior Wishes, Community Service, selling raffle tickets, and fundraising. If you want to help but don’t have much time you can sell raffle tickets – this is our main fundraiser! Contact Stephanie Bradley if you can help at sbradley3@msn.com or Lindsay Dembs ldembs323@gmail.com. We will have another Zoom meeting in December. Sorry for those who tried to join the November meeting; we had technical difficulties. Also, a packet of information and order forms will go out around February for all the following items. Here are a couple of items to think about: 

    Raffle Tickets: We will be selling raffle tickets beginning the week of November 30th. We need ALL senior parents to try and sell as many raffle tickets as possible. If you want to help – sell tickets! This is our main fundraiser for the SANP! The raffle is tied to the Michigan Lottery, Evening Daily 3 (on Wednesdays), if the last 3 numbers of your ticket match the numbers drawn you could win a minimum of $100 or a maximum of $250. Tickets are $20 and you have 20 chances to win, very good odds! The drawing time frame for our raffle is January 13 - May 16th. They make great stocking stuffers! Please contact Ashley Caza for tickets at ac2@me.com or call/text 248-376-7602, I will arrange for a contactless pick up. 

    Baby/Current PhotosWe need a digital version of your senior's baby photo and a current photo sent to Dave Green at davidhgreen@comcast.net (yearbook will be asking for a photo too - this is separate).  Also, it would fun to include a zany picture of your senior's COVID experience, if you have one. Make sure include the full name of the senior and a contact number in case we have issues. 

    Yard Signs: Information on buying Senior Yard signs will go out after the holidays. They will be $30. Please contact Holly Baynham at hbaynham@sbcglobal.net with questions. 

    Donations: If you know any local businesses that could donate money, prizes, or gift cards to the SANP please contact Stephanie Bradley at sbradley3@msn.com or Lindsay Dems ldembs323@gmail.com 

    Senior Wishes: During the holidays ask your extended family members, friends, coaches, teachers, etc if they want to give a wish to your senior. This is a note to your senior to wish them good luck and congratulate them on graduating. They are $5 each or 5 for $20. We will give them to your senior the night after graduation at the SANP. This is also a fundraiser for the SANP.

  • #FalconsMakeADifference

    In a typical year, Groves celebrates Make a Difference Day with a large volunteer project. Because we were unable to gather students in person for a group service project, we want to celebrate the work our students have already completed this year! In the spirit of community service, we would like to create a 2020 montage of our Groves Falcons supporting their community. It continues to amaze us how creative, generous, and thoughtful our students are- even during a pandemic.  We are offering one hour of additional community service to those who submit a photo and brief written description about their experiences about giving back during 2020. The picture and experience can be individual, include a group, or family. Please fill out the the #FalconsMakeADifference Google Form to complete your submission.

    Questions can be directed toward Mr. Hurns in the Counseling Department at NHurns@birmingham.k12.mi.us or Mrs. Sak in the Community Service Office at ESak@birmingham.k12.mi.us

    If you have not done so already, please go to your app store to download the app -> "Membership Toolkit".  After you log in with your family’s account email and password (each student’s family has one - you may need to ask your child’s other parent for log in information), you will have your Groves Directory at your fingertips!  And - if you have a child at another school that utilizes Membership Toolkit, you can easily toggle between!

  • Groves Clubs & Activities for 2020-2021

    We are hopeful that all students participate in one or multiple school related activities during their Groves experience.  Co- and extra-curricular activities can be a great source of enjoyment for students.  Aside from pleasure, students can develop leadership skills, become valuable team members and provide a sense of belonging to their community. More information may be found on Clubs & Activites webpage.  Groves students are invited to view the list of clubs and activities offered this school year and are encouraged to get involved and stay involved.
