Principal's reflections on the Class of 2022: I think it goes without saying that the Class of 2022 will be remembered as the class that brought us back from the pandemic and re-established what it means to be part of the Grant culture. As we came back into the building this year, our seniors were the only group of students that fully knew what it was like to be a Bulldog. They were the only ones coming back onto campus who had fully experienced our amazing teachers, pep assemblies, dances, full hallways, and "normal" classes. They were the only ones who fully knew what it felt like to truly Keep it RED, and they have done an amazing job at helping all our underclassmen relearn what it means to be a Bulldog. The Class of 2022 has learned how to not just survive and thrive, but to actually rebuild and come together. We've had no shortage of adventures during their high school years, but all of the learning experiences have taught our graduating seniors' resilience, grit, and the importance of community. Graduating seniors -- high school is now in your past; so, go out and set your sights high, learn from your past and live for your future. Congratulations, and we wish you all the best in the amazing adventures that you will create!

-- Principal Jeremy Schmidt
