Welcome to Grass Valley Elementary School
Home of the Super Grass Valley Kids!

Our Mission:
To teach all students using the most highly effective learning designs

Our Vision:
To have all students become contributing members of society who are effective communicators, collaborators, and creative, critical thinkers

Our Learning Principles and Commitments:
The staff commits to conditions for powerful learning to guide decisions about our learning community. These decisions include those that guide staff in creating well-designed learning experiences to be maximally effective and engaging for all learners; and, includes common language that functions as criteria for a variety of school actions (designing curriculum, classroom observations, scheduling, professional learning, goal-setting). The GVES staff has developed our own learning principles and collective commitments to guide us in our mission, vision, and decision-making about curriculum planning and instruction.

Welcome to All Our Grass Valley ES Families
We have an amazing staff who is ready to go and provide students with a super education, and we have already created our blueprint to help us do that! We want families and the community to be partners with us in our students’ education as you will be an important part of troubleshooting our challenges and celebrating all of our successes.

Please look at the GVES Parent Handbook which gives important information for families to know for the entire school year.

Please read through our Curriculum Blueprint to see the learning foundations we will anchor to when designing and providing classroom instruction.

We look forward to partnering with our community and encourage you to come in and visit us. If you are interested in volunteering, please let us know because we would love to have you!
