Grand Blanc Community Schools is proud to announce our attendance awareness campaign for the 2016-2017 school year. To kick off this campaign, we are excited about partnering with the community to celebrate September as Attendance Awareness Month! All students that attend school on time, every day, for the month of September will be entered into a drawing. Prizes for each winner will be awarded at a school board meeting in October. Research reveals that attendance, at all levels, plays a critical role in student achievement and is a better predictor of graduation rates than test scores. Since chronic absences affect all kids, not just the absent ones, we are asking for your support as we work together to fill every desk, every day!
Healthy Snacks~Please remember that Brendel is a Nut Free School.

SchoolBlocks offers a unique and powerful personalized search system. A member of the public, searching for "homework" might see an announcement from the school as the first result. However, if the user is logged in, they would see their teacher’s latest homework assignment as the top result.
