Staff Feature

This week's staff feature is Mrs. Karen VanZandt. Karen and her children attended Greenville Elementary School and Greenville J/S High School. Now her grandchildren continue the family tradition! Karen is a paraeducator at IVES. She works as an aide in Mrs. Johnson's first-grade classroom as well as in our Special Education classroom. Karen is an active member of the community and earlier this year helped to serve at the Community Supper when it was held in the GJSHS Culinary Room. Karen is an asset to our staff and we are so grateful that she joined us this year.


Send your Box Tops in with students or drop them by the IVES office. The money we receive from the Box Tops goes right back into the classrooms! Thank you for your assistance!

A Note from Our District Nurse

We Need Your Help

We receive Title I and other federal funding for our school based on the number of students who qualify for free or reduced lunch. Because of the grant PUSD received to have all of our students receive free breakfast and lunch, many families have not completed the confidential income verification form. This can be done easily through your parent portal or we have forms available in each school office. We use these funds for extra interventions for our students, including a classroom paraprofessional who works directly with students. Thank you for completing the form to help us to secure the additional funding.
