The first day of school might be just behind us, but it's never too late for students to start thinking about their future. Students at Grandview Middle School have a chance to apply for a scholarship that could pay for up to four years of college tuition.
The Grandview School Board appointed a new member on Monday night. Dr. Richard Van Kirk was appointed school director for district two. It's a position previously held by Zulma Ochoa, who left the position in June when she moved out of the area.
With students heading back to school it’s time for freshly sharpened pencils, crisp pieces of paper and rows of colorful crayons, but it’s also time to start thinking about student safety. This year teachers and staff of the Grandview School District are coming back from summer vacation ready for anything.
This year the Grandview School District hired more than 25 new teachers for the 2014-2015 school year. New teachers are busy setting up their classrooms at every school and at nearly every grade level. The list of new hires includes everyone from math and special education teachers to kindergarten and science teachers.
The Grandview School District recently received a $122,000 grant, along with the Toppenish, Wapato and Zillah districts, which will pay for mentoring for all of the district’s new teachers.
