    About the Teacher
    Welcome to ACP-O! First I would like to introduce myself. My name is Kerry Grimes and this is my 24th year teaching. My first 5 years were in the Gilbert School District and the last 19 years have been in CUSD.   My husband is also a long-time teacher in CUSD (Bogle Junior High).  We have been married for 22 years and have 2 wonderful boys. Our oldest, Keegan, attends college in Iowa, and our youngest, Connor, will be a sophmore at Perry High School.  Both boys play football, so we spend a lot of time in the stands supporting them!  Needless to say we have a busy life at home, but I also love my job and look forward to spending quality time with my students! 
    Junior high is an important step in preparing students for success in high school. Regular attendance and organization are emphasized throughout the year in order to ensure academic success. In order for a child to be successful, a partnership must be established between the teacher, parent and student. I hope to develop this partnership with you and your child throughout the 2020-2021 school year. If at any time throughout the year you have questions, please don't hesitate to e-mail me at grimes.kerry@cusd80.com.
