    GV Teacher/Staffer Spotlight

    Meet the great people that help make our school the wonderful place it is -- even from a distance!  

    Our Principal, Mrs Grim!

    Donna GrimDonna Grim has been in the field of education for 33 years, starting out as a teacher in 1st grade. Mrs. Grim has taught in many roles: Preschool, 1st, 2nd, 4th, 5th, 6th, 7th and 8th grades, and in GATE, Special Education and General Education.  17 years of that time, she has been a site administrator, too!  She began her career in Themalito/Oroville/Chico, then taught in Winters, CA for 14 years, then Woodland for a year, then all the way out to Los Alamos, NM for 6 years before coming to Green Valley as principal, where she has begun her 10th year in this role.

    Mrs. Grim finds that her favorite thing about her job is helping teachers and families figure out what works best for a child in his or her learning.  Putting the pieces together that allow for the "ah HA!" moments to take place makes her very happy and she gets a lot of satisfaction when those lightbulb moments happen.  Another source of pure pleasure for Mrs. Grim is when a child just cannot wait to share about their learning and realizations with her or others around -- the pure enthusiasm for exploration and learning simply cannot be matched by that of a child sharing his or her big discovery. 

    Ten years at GV has given Mrs. Grim a lot of amazing memories and she is not able to just pick only a few. She loves the Fall Festival, the GV Theater Company show and its Teacher Act, GV Field Day and all the individual class performances, plus the amazing school garden.  She is especially proud of the Colonial Days event that last year's 5th grade class put on almost completely by themselves, it was truly exceptional!

    Since the pandemic started, Mrs. Grim has found a renewed sense of appreciation for the work she is able to do with parents on behalf of supporting our students and staff, as well as gratitude for working with such an incredible group of educators.  In times that have been so tough for so many, Mrs. Grim is in awe of the dedication shown by our school community!  It really fills her heart and drives her to do even more to grow Green Valley.  Like many of us, Mrs. Grim has found the pandemic has allowed her to learn a lot of new technology-related things!  She considers herself as non-tech-y as a person can be, yet she has learned to do quite a lot.

    Mrs. Grim loves to be with her family, so her happy place is anywhere that is with them!  She also loves to ride her bike, go to the beach or hike in the mountains.  She is absolutely living for the moment when life can go back to normal and she can see the GV children on campus every day again -- she misses the students an awful lot!

    Mrs. Grim says, "To our GV kids, I would say you have an entire school who cannot wait to have you back together with us!  We love you and we love watching you grow and learn.  You are our sunshine!"

    Please make sure you come to the front parking lot of Green Valley on the dates listed above to collect important materials and work your student needs for remote learning -- or send a friend to grab it for you!  It's not just pens and crayons, but worksheets and other specific items your student's teacher has prepared for your child to work on at home in conjunction with the virtual teaching.  To save resources, please keep the green plastic bag you received at the last pick up and keep the personalized canvas bag that is to come, as they will be reused and swapped out for each other during each pick up date.  This will help teachers and staff to continue to prepare materials for your child!  gvsupplies


     

    Library Books

    Students/Parents,

    Are you looking for something good to read?  Our school library is still available to you--even though we are doing this very differently than we have in previous years.  So, why not learn how you can get access to actual books from your school library?  We have a Library bookswonderful selection of great books!  All you have to do is request library book holds (go to the Green Valley library webpage) and watch the video to learn how to request a hold or multiple holds for library books.  I'll process these holds and they will be ready at the grade level library curbside pickup (if the library books are available and holds were received by the deadline).  

    Library curbside pickup schedule for TK-2nd grades and 3rd-5th grades.  You may want to post this someplace visible so you have these important dates for the deadlines!
