Principal’s Opening Message
Dear Grand View Families,
It is with great anticipation that I welcome you to the 2012-2013 School Year. As you already know, this will be the shortest summer break yet, as we are officially into the Early Start Calendar, with classes beginning on Tuesday, Aug. 14. This coming school year promises to be another milestone for Grand View, as we continue in our efforts to provide the best learning experience for all our students. I also look forward to working with our parents and community members to ensure everyone has a voice and an active role in shaping the future of our school.
In spite of the debilitating budget woes we have experienced the last few years, Grand View Boulevard Elementary School is steadfast in its commitment to continue improving the instructional programs and enrichment opportunities we offer our students. This is only possible due to the fact that we some of the brightest and most dedicated teachers and staff in the entire district. While our Dual Language Immersion Program continues to thrive, you can expect great things from our English Program this coming school year. Our English Program will now be known as the Learning Academy, which curriculum follows State and District mandates and policies, but with a focus on science and scientific inquiry. There will be information forthcoming to all stakeholders regarding the Learning Academy. On a different note, I am happy to inform you that we will continue hosting LAs BEST, Ready, Set, Go, as well as Youth Services, starting on Tuesday, August 14, 2012. Additionally, we will still be offering Enrich L.A., Mad Science, P.S. Arts, Samy’s Camera, as well as a host of Intervention opportunities that support and nurture learning in all its facets.
Needless to say, this promises to be an exciting year. I hope you are able to join us and partake of the wonderful things that will be taking place at Grand View. Once you set foot on our campus, you will agree that here at Grand View we are committed to educational excellence.
