Bruneau-Grand View School District News
In a small community like ours, area schools are often the center of the neighborhood. It’s where children and families alike gather for the betterment of the community. To that end, we have many family-friendly events and programs planned throughout the year. We also like to publicize the accomplishments of our students and staff. Stop by often to find out all the latest!
On April 23, 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 have been learning to be "victim-proof" through the curriculum and learning that their response to situations are their responsibility.
From the VictimProof website, "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."
To learn more about Tom Thelen, and his VictimProof program, please visit his speaker program.

As part of our comprehensive crisis response plan, BGV staff received training in the A.L.I.C.E. system this past fall. A.L.I.C.E. training provides preparation and planning for individuals and organizations on how to proactively respond to the threat of an aggressive intruder or active shooter. We invite you to read more about the A.L.I.C.E. process and training in this letter to all BGV parents.
