Back to School for Grandview Schools
The Grandview C-4 School District aims to ramp up community involvement through several partnerships and new initiatives this year.
- Cornerstones of Care offers social and emotional health screenings for 3rd-5th graders (with parental permission). Other grade levels will be added in the 2018-19 school year.
- Caring for Kids is a new partnership that helps coordinate community volunteers.
- Grow Your Own Initiative links local businesses with high school students through internships, mentoring, scholarships and job training.
- Reader Leaders encourages parents and community members to read to students in the classroom for one hour per month.
Additional volunteers and businesses are needed–contact the district for more information.
The fine arts programming for students will be receiving nearly $50,000 in musical instruments this year.
The district completed several bond projects this summer including new canopies at Meadowmere Elementary, new windows and shades at the Grandview Assistance Program, fire alarm upgrades at Martin City K-8, parking lot improvements at Butcher-Greene Elementary, and a partial roof replacement at High Grove Early Childhood.
The South Kansas City Alliance recently selected the district to receive the Outstanding Educational Achievement Program Award for Project Lead the Way! The award recognizes efforts made to provide all students access to STEM education.
