“Backup” Lunch Supervisor Needed

Every once in a while, we are in need of a “backup” lunch supervisor when ours cannot make it.  (It is a paid position). One would have to fill out some application forms and have a police check completed.  If you are interested in the position, please contact the school at 519-752-1422.

Thank you!

As the new acting principal at Grandview, I would like to express my gratitude for the great welcome I have received from students, staff and the parents I have met.  I know it is not easy to lose a principal near the end of the year, especially one like Mr. Leadbetter.  However, he and I have met several times, and continue to do so, to make the transition as successful as possible.

I am a Brantford person, born and raised here and a product of our school system.  I grew up in Eagle Place and went to the now defunct schools of King Edward and Joseph Brant.  I have been in education since 1982. (some students have already come up to me and said that I taught his/her parents…at least no grandparents yet!)  I officially retired as a principal from Banbury a couple of years ago, but have continued to fill in for principals since then, most recently at Major Ballachey before Christmas. I am happily married to Shelley, also a retired teacher, and have two “kids” who are making their way in the world.

My door is almost always open, and ready to problem solve beside you on issues that arise. Looking forward to meeting you!

puzzle pathway

Hello everyone! Thanks to all who have donated to our Puzzle piece pathway campaign so far! We have raised $154.00 since April 3rd, which brings our Snoezelen room fundraising amount to $6,154 i n just 5 months!

The puzzle pieces are now making their way upstairs to the intermediates, with Red colour house leading the pack. Let’s see if we can make it all the way back to the ASD room by the end of April 🙂

May Day!!! May Day!!!

Sad News!

As many of you may have heard from your children when they came home from school today, I will be starting as principal of Russell Reid School beginning on Friday, April 13. I would like to thank students and parents for your support over the past four years at Grandview. I have truly enjoyed my time here where I have built many great relationships. I am leaving the school in very capable hands with the new principal Rod Bowers who will be here until the end of the year. I’m wishing each and every student all the best in their present and future endeavours.

Thank you Grandview!
