Volunteer Thank You 6/10

FROM RHONDA STEINBERG It is time for our teachers to thank each parent volunteer for the amazing number of hours given to make Grand View the "Happiest Place on Earth." If you have volunteered in the classroom, in the library, in the science lab, on a field trip, for a PTA event, or for a grade level extravaganza then you have earned a free ticket for our Annual Parent Volunteer Thank You get together. A light breakfast will be served and child care will be provided on the upper playground.
For: EVERY Parent Volunteer

Sad News - How You Can Help

GRAND VIEW UNITES TO HELP CROSSING GUARD IN TIME OF LOSS Our kind, caring, and beloved crossing guard Ms. Kay, who is stationed at 24th and Bell, recently suffered the unexpected death of her ex-husband. Several parents have expressed concern and interest in helping offset the untimely financial burden for Ms. Kay who now is the sole supporter of their 15-year-old son. Ms. Kay is a part of our Grand View family and we hope you will consider a donation to help out. The box will be in the front office and your kind donations will be delivered to Ms. Kay on Wednesday, 6/10. Questions? Contact Jessica Black.

School Supplies for 2015-16

ORDER ONLINE BY 6/30 Visit 1st Day School Supplies, Locate Grand View and select your child's grade for NEXT YEAR. Kits will be mailed to your home in a reusable bag for your child to bring on their first day of school. 6/30 is the firm final date to place an order. Questions? Email Kristen Lukas.

Classroom Emergency Kits for 2015-16

DEADLINE TO ORDER 9/15  Every student must have an emergency kit at school. EDP students need two kits: one for the classroom and one for the EDP room. And for peace of mind, some families order extra kits to keep at home and in the car. Order online at moreprepared.com. Kits have a 5-year shelf life, so order only if you don't have yours from last year to send with your child in the fall. Kits will be delivered to your child's classroom in late September. Questions? Email Kristen Lukas.
