Grassy Lake Elementary students commit to "Learn Anyway"


A 4th grade class at Grassy Lake Elementary School wanted to create a sense of cohesiveness, collaboration and pride in their classroom this year. Thanks to the generosity of parents and a donation from Ford of Clermont, their teachers, Mrs. Riffle and Mrs. Kuhn, were able to fund several projects, including making class shirts displaying their motto for the year: “Learn anyway” for the students and “Teach Anyway” for the teachers.

Their principal, Mrs. Cole, showed a video during pre-planning of a talk by Rita Pierson that was the inspiration for this year’s theme. Despite any challenges they may face, they have made the commitment to come to school and learn and teach anyway and in any way necessary.
