LEAVE THE CAR AT HOME (and the Stress) WEDNESDAY MORNING Morning drop-off can be source of irritation and frustration when you drive to school. Take a breather this Wednesday and walk/wheel to school with your child on International Walk to School Day using these safe walking routes. This global event began in 1997 and over time has become part of a movement for year-round safe routes to school. On 10/4 Mrs. Doyle and Mrs. Witzansky are looking forward to walking with students in the morning, and volunteers from Beach Cities Health District and our own 5th Grade Student Council Green Rep and Gator will be on hand to pass out participation stickers and stamps at various locations around school. Keep up the routine every Wednesday –or even more often– whenever you can!
Friday evening, 9/15 at Grand View come enjoy a movie, dinner and tons of fun under the stars. Besides dinner and a movie there will be DJ pre-show, free Popsicles, a free photo booth, and candy & glow merchandise for sale. The fun starts at 5:30pm, and the movie begins at dusk (approximately 7:30pm). Visit gvpta.com for details and ticket purchases. This is also a great event to volunteer your time, so volunteer today.
Congratulations to all the winners of the first Grand View Summer Art Contest! Every student drew a picture of their favorite summer read. Their work will be displayed in the next few weeks on the upper playground fence and all winners will receive a gator tee shirt of their choice.
Grand View loves Ms. Dina Moll, who was honored recently as Grand View Teacher of the Year and the Gator Run Queen. Principal Doyle presented Ms. Moll with her plaque, tiara and flowers at the Grand View Courage Assembly on June 12. Ms. Moll is a kindergarten teacher at Grand View, and we couldn’t be more excited for her. Way to go, Ms. Moll!
All Grand View volunteers are invited to the Volunteer Tea on Thursday from 7:30-8:30 am in the Cafeteria. Teachers will be providing a wonderful breakfast for everyone. Please come, so we can celebrate you and all you do for GV!
