GJSHS 2019-2020 Registration Night

It's time to register for the 2019-2020 school year! Wednesday, May 1, from 6:00 - 7:30 p.m., incoming 8th - 12th grade students will meet with staff to review their 6-year plans, graduation requirements, and a-g requirements for CSU and UC schools. More information will be provided to students after spring break.

Kindergarten Roundup

Last Thursday, we saw many incoming TK and kindergarten students. Mrs. Marcher, our kindergarten teacher, greeted students and read them a story--they even got to keep the book! Students also received snacks from our IVES Parents' Club. Thank you to all of our staff and community volunteers that made it a successful event! If you know someone who might have missed the event and needs to register a TK or kindergarten student for next year, please contact Jennifer Martin in the IVES office for more information.

IVES Garden Program

Spring Greetings,

IVES Garden is growing this summer. We'll be moving into a bigger space closer to the playground and we've set a goal to build 2 veggie boxes per grade. Stay tuned for ways to support our small garden program throughout the end of the school year. Wednesdays are gardening days and clothes that can dig in are recommended. See you in the sunshine, Ramsey Harvey

Greenville Cy Hall Museum

Attention Maker Students!!!!

Greenville Cy Hall’s Museum is Hosting a Transportation Tea on May 11th and we’d love to have you help us make the day special.

We are looking for students to make models of transportation used in Indian Valley over the years---everything from snowshoes to trains and trucks. They should be small enough to fit on a table and there will be a prize for the best one. Deadline for entry is May 10th.

For more info please contact megupton@thestudy.us

Snow Days/School Closure

With all of the winter weather we have had in the last couple of months, we want to clarify closure/make up days for each community.

Greenville (all schools): One built in closure/make up day has been used to date, so school will be in session on Friday May 24th. If additional delayed starts are necessary, minimum days will be extended to regular hours.

Chester (all schools): All built in closure/make up days were used, so school will be in session on both Friday, April 12th and Friday May 24th. We will apply for a waiver from the state for the additional four days.

Portola (all schools): All built in closure/make up days were used, so school will be in session on both Friday, April 12th and Friday May 24th. We will apply for a waiver from the state for the additional day.

Quincy (all schools): One built in closure/make up day has been used to date, so school will be in session on Friday May 24th.

Are you receiving school announcements?

We are moving from School Messenger to Aeries Communication for school announcements.

IVES needs BOX TOPS!

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.
