8-MINUTE EXERCISE ROUTINE  We begin our daily exercise routine 9/3.  Parents may watch the first day, but thereafter must exit the campus after dropping off children if there is no other business to conduct at school.  Thank you for respecting our instructional day.

API SCORES A SOURCE OF PRIDE AT GV  Our National Green Ribbon Award and our stellar test scores have prompted the U.S. Dept. of Education to tour our school on 9/16.  You should each take pride in being an integral member of our fabulous school.
