VOLUNTEER(S) NEEDED TO MANAGE BEFORE & AFTER SCHOOL ENRICHMENT PROGRAM:
GV parents, we need your help! For the last 4 years Michelle Duffield has done an amazing job spearheading Green Valley's Before & After School Enrichment Program. During this time, more than 300 families have taken advantage of the program to expose their child to languages, the arts, athletics, carpentry, science and much more.
Michelle is now officially retiring from the chair position and is looking for a new volunteer (or volunteers) to step forward to run the program. With the start of school fast approaching, we need to fill her position ASAP in order to have Enrichment classes this fall.
Green Valley Enrichment is it’s own program and reports directly to the front office. You will work under Debbie McCabe and Donna Grim. There are no meetings to attend and all programming is done from your home or office via email and phone calls. The role requires approximately 15 hours per session (fall, spring and summer) and involves coordinating classes with instructors, sending out and receiving contracts, updating the website and class schedule and opening registration.
If you are interested, please email Michelle.
5th GRADE UNVEILS TILE PROJECT:
Did you know that the 5th grade tile projects that you see displayed near the courtyard are part of a long-standing tradition that goes back more than 25 years? This year's tile project was "Oh the Places You'll Go" and you can check out a video of the unveiling by clicking here. Better yet, come see it for yourself!
GREEN VALLEY WINS ANOTHER AWARD!:
Green Valley has been chosen by Educational Results Partnership (ERP) and the Campaign for Business and Education Excellence (CBEE) as a 2015 California Honor Roll recipient! The California Honor Roll is part of a national effort known for its extensive and rigorous analysis of student achievement in public schools. Our school stood above other schools in the state because of our success in getting students to higher levels of achievement and beyond.
CONGRATULATIONS BREE LIGON!:
On May 7th, Green Valley's very own Bree Ligon (from Ms. Robinson's class) won the 5th Grade category of the 2016 SRVUSD Speech Contest. This is the first time in over twenty years that a Green Valley student has won! Congratulations also go to Christopher Lee (from Ms. Maher's class) for competing in the district competition as well. Both students had five minutes to discuss what they would do if they "Ruled the World."
