School Calendar:

Please make sure to check out the Leland & Gray school calendar.  It differs from the District calendar because of professional development days for our faculty.   The full calendar can be found here.

L&G Food Shelf:

The Leland & Gray Food Shelf, an annex of the Townshend Community Food Shelf, is up and running. It is open to all of the L&G community during school hours. Please contact Sara Dunbar, the school nurse, at 221-2126 or or one of the school counselors or social worker to come shopping, drop ins are welcome. Students are invited and encouraged to shop for their families.

If you have items you would like to donate, they can be delivered to the nurse's office at Leland & Gray. We appreciate your support of this program.

Thank you to the generous contributions of The Stratton Foundation and The Townshend Community Food Shelf for helping to make this vision a reality.

Healthy Valley 2040:


Asking for students interested to design a permanent logo for the HV2040  project that the committee will use on letterhead, promotional materials, and communications!  You heard about this at the October school assembly,  but we forgot to mention that the winner of the logo chosen will receive a $50.00 gift card to the Harmonyville store!

Get your creative ideas going!
