Saturday, Oct. 2, marked a very special day, one everyone has been waiting a long time to see happen - the official ribbon cutting for the new Grandview High School. Following a ceremony filled with local dignitaries and school officials, hundreds of people streamed into the building to take part in self-guided tours and for many, to take their first look at the new building. People had a chance to visit classrooms, see the school's two gyms and its amazing auditorium, as well as visit specialty spaces like the robotics classroom, the weight room and the sparkling new family and consumer sciences room.

We are excited to announce that we are starting a new program in the district – Cultivating Kindness! Cultivating Kindness aims to recognize employees for the impact they have made through amazing customer service and communication.
We know our staff is amazing and that we have people who are always willing to go the extra mile for our students and their families. We want to recognize these people and the impact their actions have on our school district and community as a whole.
Every month – October through May – we will recognize three employees. Employees will be nominated by their peers or people in the community. You can nominiate someone using the Google Form linked below, by clicking the nominiation button in the GSD app or by filling out a physical nominiation form at your school.
Every month we will accept nominations through the 15th of that month. Then our Cultivating Kindness Committee will go through the nominations and select three people to be honored at the second school board meeting of that month.
We are excited to launch this new program and hear the stories of how our employees are making an impact on the lives of our families.
We will present our first Cultivating Kindness Awards during the Oct. 26 school board meeting. We will be accepting nominations for the October award through Friday, Oct. 15.
