School Climate Book Club:  Granby Memorial Middle School was awarded $4,000 to establish a school-wide book club to explore the themes of dignity, respect, ethical leadership, empathy, character, and the idea that everyone contributes to a positive school environment.  All students and staff members at GMMS will read the book Wonder by R. J. Palacio which will then serve as a point of common ground throughout the school year for discussion groups, supplemental activities, and a culminating project.  A book club for  GMMS parents will be offered as well, extending the program into the students’ homes.
