Grand Valley Middle School



We have never been more excited to begin a school year! It is an exciting time to live, learn and grow at Grand Valley Middle School. This year brings some changes for our students, parents and community as we continue working towards creating a district where EVERY student is successful. TOGETHER, we will make 2018-2019 the greatest year yet!

Grand Valley Middle School Cardinals

GVMS has now joined the Cardinal Nation as we add to the unifying momentum of Garfield County School District #16. All students in grades 6-8 will receive a Grand Valley Cardinals T-shirt on August 23rd to wear on Friday, August 24th to celebrate this occasion. We join the Center for Family Learning (CFL), Bea Underwood Elementary (BUE) and Grand Valley High School (GVHS) as the Cardinals!


New Students to the District Only: Friday, August 10th (9:00 a.m. - 3:30 p.m.)

Parents and guardians only need to register their child if they are new to the district. If your child attended Bea Underwood Elementary as a 5th-grade student then we already have all your information.
