Nimo Rocks Grand View and Plants Seeds of Joy and Hope!

Please ask your children about the wonderful assembly Nimo Patel shared with us this week, and enjoy the seeds of joy and hope as they are embraced by all the children in the video below.  He shared not only his courageous journey from Wharton Business School and Wall Street to his important educational work in the slum communities in India for the last 7 years. We were all awe-inspired and entertained by his stories and his captivating music. We were so lucky that he generously came to Grand View School while in the CA for a few short weeks. He was so impressed with our amazing students and the kindness they are sharing with one another and in our world. He would not change us a fee for his time or talent and only accepts donations to support his work in the slums. Download his album for free, watch youtube videos and offer any donations to help with his ongoing work. Thank you for checking it out! Any donations would be so meaningful to him. With a grateful heart, Mrs. Doyle

Morning Mindfulness


mindfull_yogaTuesday Mornings: 3/7, 3/14. 3/21, 3/28: The Character and Wellness Committee is pleased to continue offering some mindfulness to Grand View through the month of March!  We are offering Morning Mindfulness with Joanie to any student in grades 3-5.   Joanie Plake, a former elementary teacher, current yoga instructor and owner of Breathe and Learn, will be leading the sessions.  The goal of Morning Mindfulness is to help students start their day with a healthy mind and attitude.  Through breathing exercises and mindset activities, students will learn to simply be present and prepare for the day ahead.  With practice, these skills will hopefully not only help in the morning, but eventually carry over into their daily school and home life.  Please encourage your children to come by and check it out!

Morning Mindfulness with Joanie
Time:  Tuesdays in February 7:45am-8:05 am
Location:  Room 23 (mats will be provided)

Sign up recommended. If you would like to volunteer, please sign up online. For questions please contact Lisa Schlager at
