One of the most important institutions in our society is public education. Of the approximately 55 million K-12 aged children in the United States, it is estimated that 90 percent are enrolled in public schools. Second only to parenting, the longstanding institution of public education will have the greatest influence on America’s future.
In Colorado, we’ve experienced an ongoing discussion around the adequacy of resources for our public schools with mixed results.
Students and families throughout our communities will be able to access free lunches this summer. Meals will be provided to any child under the age of 18. Adults with a child will be able to eat at "no charge" until funding dollars run out.
Meals will be provided at Countryside Village, Roth Rock Dell Park, Kanemoto Park, Carr Park and the Longmont Youth Center. Please review the flyer for days, times and activities.
As we plan for the inaugural year of Grand View Elementary, we welcome information about our learners' needs and learning styles. If your learner(s) will be attending GVE, we would love to know more about how we can best serve them through instruction, classroom environment, and social and emotional considerations.
If you would like to speak to Principal McNeill regarding any additional issues, please contact Kari Sturn, at 303-702-8000 to schedule an appointment prior to August 3rd.
Grand View Elementary has an exciting summer coming up! Check out our list of upcoming events. We'll continue to update it as more dates and time are added. We look forward to welcoming you, our community, into your building and preparing for the new school year with lots of fun community events.
Grand View Elementary's final Community Night will take place on Tuesday, May 8 from 5:00 - 7:00pm at the Wyndham Hill Clubhouse. We would love to see current and future community members attend. The format will give Grand View staff the opportunity to get to know our future learners better and will also allow families to learn more about Grand View.
The Grand View Elementary Leadership Team has been working diligently to develop a foundation through our Mission, Vision and Core Value statements that reflect our belief that GVE will empower students to pursue their dreams by fueling a passion for learning and achieving their full potential. We will provide engaging, individualized instruction in a positive, learner-centered community that prepares our students for the challenges of growing up in a global society.
Thank you for your continued partnership and unwavering support which has contributed significantly to student achievement and success. I am deeply appreciative of our community, as you have consistently demonstrated your value for public education through the generous passage of several mill levy overrides and bond initiatives, among many other ways that you have strengthened our schools. Together with our excellent teachers and staff, our students are receiving the benefit of an outstanding education.
As we move closer to the end of another outstanding year in St. Vrain Valley Schools, I want to take a moment to recognize the achievements and growth we have seen across our system. In the coming weeks, we will be championing the thousands of students who will be transitioning to kindergarten, middle school, high school or graduating with their St. Vrain Valley Schools diploma. It is through our outstanding educators, dedicated parents and unwavering community support that we have seen our students and schools excel to the highest levels of achievement.
