Possible Name Change for IVES

During the past several weeks as we are working on Measure B projects around campus, we have been designing a new electronic marquee. During the design process, a discussion arose of changing the name of Indian Valley Elementary School back to Greenville Elementary School. We have received staff input, but would like your input as well. Please use this link to a survey to tell us your thoughts: https://goo.gl/forms/uCojPjqXdez54Vcp2. Responses will be accepted through February 12.

Staff Feature

This week's staff feature is Mr. Brian Scott. Mr. Scott teaches Spanish at Chester J/S High School in the mornings and then Greenville J/S High School in the afternoons. Not only is he our Spanish teacher, but Mr. Scott is also the academic counselor for GJSHS. Mr. Scott helps students with class schedule changes and also makes sure that students are enrolling in the classes they need for high school graduation. This past week was School Counselor Appreciation Week and we definitely appreciate all that Mr. Scott does for students at GJSHS!


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.
