Dear Families,

It's been a hot, humid, Indian Summer here this week! We are getting in a nice routine and back into the swing of school! Teachers are working hard to assess all students and plan top notch instruction to move our students forward. We have the most dedicated, caring staff, working hard for our students every day. We thank you, families, for helping get your children into a routine to help with this smooth beginning to the year.

We are off to an amazing start!


In Partnership,

Mrs. Michelle Barsh

Beginning of the year testing has begun!

Teachers are working hard on beginning of the year assessments with your child. These tests also are repeated many times during the year to help monitor your child's progress. We are in full swing with our building/district NWEA Math and Reading testing, as well as other reading and math assessments. The best thing you can do is to encourage your child to give their best, have them get a good night's sleep, and continue to get them to school each day! Thank you for your support!

GOT BOOKS?!

BOOKS WANTED!

Send in books! Books you've read and are ready to let someone else read, books you are ready to send to a new home, and books that you are ready to part with!

We need books for our Grandview Bookies and Milk Book Swap evening!

Way to go Grandview Families! Shoparoo automatically restarts at the end of August, so a new year has just started. Let’s see how much we can raise this year!
