On Thursday, May 17, our campus was full of school spirit, color, and fun! This year's color run went smoothly and was even on KIVI Channel 6 News!

Tom Thelen Visits Grand View

On May 9, Grand View Elementary had the honor of hosting Author Tom Thelen to our school for an assembly. Tom Thelen is the author of Victimproof, which is part of the curriculum we use during community groups. Students are learning to be "victim-proof" through the curriculum and learning that their response to situations is their responsibility.

From their website: "Tom Thelen is one of America’s top anti-bullying speakers. He has spoken at over 500 schools, colleges, and youth organizations teaching students how to break free from the victim mindset and how to stand up to bullying. Tom has been on FOX, PBS, CBS, The National Honor Society, and The National Association of Student Councils.

As an anti-bullying speaker, Tom gives students practical strategies to “be the change” on their campus. His message takes them on a journey through his own life story including an intervention program he experienced as a teen and how he learned to make positive life choices. Tom is a gifted motivator who relates to teens with stories that touch the heart and make them laugh. His high-energy school assembly programs create a defining moment for schools and provide an experience students never forget. Tom lives in Michigan with his wife Casie and their four children." 

We invite you to learn more about Tom Thelen.

Grand View Elementary Read Week

Grand View Elementary was able to offer the second annual read week this school year after students "read around the hallway”. This year, students again participated in reading buddies, a book buffet, dress up days, and much more!

The bulletin board contest resulted in first place going to Mr. Meyers' class with a Pokémon theme, second place going to Ms. Davis' class with a gingerbread man theme, and third place to Mrs. Malika's class with a Harry Potter theme. 

Last Day Of School

The last day of school is on Thursday, May 24. It's been a wonderful school year, and we wish everyone a safe and enjoyable summer!

5th Grade Transition Plan

At the request of the Bruneau-Grand View (BGV) community, a review of research was conducted in 2016, to help the BGV School District make a data-based decision regarding the educational environment for 6th grade students in the BGV School District and facilitate a discussion regarding best practices.

Across the country, many students experience a significant drop in achievement during their first year of middle school, regardless of whether they transition in 5th, 6th, or 7th grade (Cook, 2007; Lockwood, 2010). The reasons for this drop are numerous, but studies indicate that there are key activities that can promote positive transitions between the elementary and middle school setting.

In the spring of 2016, BGV staff and administration reviewed current literature, met with community members, and worked in teams to identify key areas of focus in order to facilitate a healthy transition from 5th to 6th grade (from elementary school to middle school). Please take a moment to review our 5th grade transition plan for complete details.
