The Grand Rapids Public Schools Athletics Department is partnering with the Grand Rapids Spanish Soccer League to host the first Grand Rapids Public Schools Community Soccer Classic on Saturday, September 29, 2012 at Houseman Field.
Grand Rapids Public Schools' English Language Learner (ELL) and Migrant Department is hosting several events, including a visit from an award winning author, to celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month. National Hispanic Heritage Month takes place from September 15-October 15 and is an annual celebration of the history and culture of Hispanic Americans.
While homeschooled students are not required by the state to take the MEAP, Grand Rapids Public Schools wants to make sure that homeschooled students know that an application for admission to some of the area's top schools, including City High Middle School, Blandford School, Zoo School, and the Center for Economicology, requires MEAP scores to be submitted. MEAP testing will take place October 9-17, 2012.
