The end of school is an exciting time for a lot of kids, but that summer break is when many families that have children who receive free breakfast and lunch during the school year struggle to put enough food on the table.
That's why Grand Rapids Public Schools have announced that they will offer free meals this summer.
School funding keeps getting harder and harder to find. Once the academic part is taken care of, schools are left to their own devices, so to speak, to come up with funding for sports, music, art, and other extra curricular activities.
More than 40 teams will play on the frozen surface at Richmond Park in Grand Rapids starting Friday night (Jan. 23) and running through Sunday, Jan. 25. Division finals will be the afternoon of Jan. 25.
Big CONGRATULATIONS to Grand Rapids City High Middle school. City High Middle has been ranked the 21st most challenging high school in the Midwest by The Washington Post. It is ranked the 4th most challenging in the state and is among the top 2% of high schools in the country.
