Grant Elementary staff gathered with the family of Evelyn "Evie" Melcher on Wednesday, November 16 to share stories and honor her life. Evie passed away from a medical condition over the summer. She would have been a fourth grader this year.
Teachers paid tributes to her, calling her "A whirlwind with her own energy and her cute little boots." Another said, "Evie didn't walk into a classroom, she'd skip. Her smile lit up the room."
In October, Grant Elementary focuses on the character trait of dependability. These students were recognized for their ability to: show that they are responsible, be consistent, help others, do what's expected, be there for others, be trustworthy, remember promises, follow through, be on time and be reliable. Congratulations to these Grant Scholars on their hard work towards being dependable!
