Many in the community — especially if you currently have kids in the Grangeville schools — have heard this is music teacher Kathy Stefani’s last year at Grangeville. She has helped build a wonderful music program in Grangeville and will be greatly missed. She will, however, get to spend more time with her mother and that’s definitely important. We wish her well.
