On Feb. 20, the district unveiled its new Mobile Fab Lab. The traveling STEM lab is the result of a collaboration of Grenada School District with the Grenada Public Education Foundation and local industry.

The eye-catching, 38-foot trailer and F-450 Ford towing pick-up, donated by Kirk Auto Group. Milwaukee Tool made a generous donation for state-of-the-art fabrication equipment and tools to make the rolling classroom a training ground for students and community members interested in joining the growing local workforce.

PLTW Visits Grenada to Celebrate Impact

Grenada School District (GSD) celebrated recent achievements in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) education at a special event on Feb. 20. The occasion centered around the publication of “Launching a STEM Story for Every Student,” a profile of Grenada’s implementation of Project Lead the Way (PLTW) curriculum in grades PreK through 12. 

GSD was the first district in Mississippi to establish this program top to bottom in all grades, PreK through 12, and the district’s success story was shared and discussed with members of PLTW, local industry, and community leaders.

GHS Students Learning on the Job

GHS senior Quaniya Willis was the first student to start work at the University of Mississippi Medical Center - Grenada (UMMC) as part of a promising new internship program, facilitated by Three Rivers Planning & Development District by way of funding from AccelerateMS, the state’s workforce development partner. 

“Now we can say to our top students from the allied health program who are going into the medical field that they could possibly have a paid internship and get real-world experience in a hospital before graduating from high school,” said Tifany Reed, Career Coach at GHS. “These students are not just observing, they’re actually taking care of real patients.”

Spring baseball is gearing up, and like the start of last fall’s football season, fans are eager to see how this year’s Chargers will perform under the guidance of a new head coach.

Justin Flake took over Grenada’s baseball program last summer. He developed a successful strategy at his previous schools, including DeSoto Central and Heritage Academy in Columbus. Flake credits his winning mindset to the power of positive leadership. “The thing I’ve learned everywhere I’ve coached is to make sure the players know that you enjoy what you do,” he said. “If I bring positive energy day in and day out, it filters over to them, and then they start pouring positive energy into the program, which filters over to the stands and school and community.”

ELA teachers and specialists at Grenada High School hosted students at the second annual Halloween-themed literacy event, “Terrifying Tales." A block of classrooms at the high school were transformed into immersive environments inspired by the fantastical science-fiction stories of Ray Bradbury. Several of the author's stories were read aloud by community members.
