Welcome to Mrs. Grigg's home page. I have a B.A. from Texas Woman's University and this is my tenth year at Hurst Junior High and my 18th year teaching.

 In the Weekly Agenda section of my web page, you will find a copy of each week's lesson plans. They are listed based on grade level.

In the Document Manager section of my web page, you will find important documents and powerpoints we have used in class. Students may use these documents to help with assignments or study for upcoming exams.

I am looking forward to a very successful year with you and your student.

ATTENTION PARENTS: If you want to be included in receiving a text message when your student has homework, a project is due, or we have an exam, please text the following: Be sure to include your name, NOT only your student's.
