"When you meet your obstacles with gratitude, your perception starts to shift, resistance loses its power, and grace finds a home within you." - Oprah Winfrey

 

Thank you to the many families who have reached out to me. My heart is overwhelmed with gratitude for the kindness shown to me in our school community. Please continue to stay well!

 

School Closure Update

  • School will be closed for the remainder of the 2019/2020 school year.
 
Mrs. Doyle's Mindful Monday Messages:
 
 
Elementary Grading During Distance Learning: MBUSD has adopted a revised grading policy for distance learning. For elementary schools, teachers will provide comments on the academic achievement for the first 2/3 of the school year and can provide comments on achievement during this distance learning time as well.

 

What Can We Expect Next Year? Dr. Matthews addressed this question in his May 8, 2020 email. As more information becomes available, we will share that with you.

 

Construction: Modernization will start at Grand View on May 26, 2020. During modernization, GV's campus will be closed. 

 

5th Grade Promotion: We are working hard to find creative ways to celebrate our 5th graders! Stay tuned for more information.

 

End of 2019/2020 School Year: The last day of school for this school year is Thursday June 11, 2020.

Stay Informed and Be Calm. Here are a few resources for you to help guide conversations with your child about COVID-19:

 

Classroom Information – Teachers are communicating with students in a variety of ways including via Google Classroom, Google Meet, Zoom, Flip Grid, Teacher-tube, and utilizing a variety of instructional strategies/resources to support student learning.

 

Schedule:

  • During this time, we encourage you to create a family schedule balancing school work, screen time, creative activities, exercise, chores, reading those just right books, outdoor activities and free time. Please know that our teaching staff is on their own journey with remote/distance learning and that lessons and interactions will evolve over time. We SO appreciate your patience and support.

 

Social Distancing Graphic

 

Social Distancing: I want to reiterate the critical importance of safe social distancing.
