Gold Fundraiser Results

This was the first year we tried the gold fundraiser. I wanted to share the results with you because I believe it has potential to be a fantastic fundraiser going forward with future trips and events.
We had only 15 families participate this year (not bad for the 1st time trying this out) but raised over $4,000.00. While the average comes out to about $270 per family, a number of those who participated raised enough to pay for the trip and then some. The highest total was just under $900! Keep in mind people were bringing in old, unused and broken items.

The Fruit is Coming!!!

We have been given a tentative date for the delivery of our fruit. At this moment it looks like our order will be coming in on Tuesday December 10th. I want to stress that this is a tentative date and that it is subject to change, but I wanted to give people a heads-up that we will be sending out information about pick-up, etc.

Congratulations to our Central District Musicians!

On Saturday Nov. 16th over 1000 student musicians from all over Central MA auditioned for the opportunity to perform at Mechanics Hall with one of the district ensembles. We were thrilled at the opportunity to again host these auditions right here at GHS.
Grafton was fortunate to have ten very talented students selected to perform.
(Back Row, L-R: Nick Lawrence, Claudia Cruz, Austin Bailey, Jake Sandakly, Eric Webster
Front Row, L-R: Bailey Conkey, Kristyn Wooldridge, Kristen Turgeon.
