Crayola ColorCycle

Do you have dried out markers at home????   Grandview and Gould are now participating in Crayola ColorCycle – an amazing new program devised to turn used markers into energy!   

The markers will be sent to a facility where they will be converted into clean fuel. This fuel can be used to power vehicles, heat homes, cook meals and more!  Crayola ColorCycle program can keep tons of plastic out of landfills each year.

Please help support our efforts by sending your kids in with any used markers laying around your house – even non-Crayola brands of markers, dry erase markers or highlighters will be accepted. 

Drop-off boxes will be located at both schools for your child to deposit the markers.

Please email info@ncpartnership.org with any questions.

Books & Beyond

Books & Beyond's "Universe of Stories" program has come to an end for 2018.  The bulletin board by the library is filled with stars evidencing all the reading that took place over the last three months. Congratulations to Ms. Veneziano’s second grade class for having the most students to reach Level 9!  About two thirds of the students in her class reached Level 9, earning an ice cream party generously donated by Sip N Swirl!  A special shout-out to also recognize the valiant efforts of both Ms. Doyen's kindergarten class and Mrs. Newman's and Mrs. Jones' second grade class, each of which had about half of their students reach Level 9.  These classes also have earned a small party to celebrate their efforts and success.  This year, 92% of the 386 students at Grandview participated in the program, and a whopping 101 students reached Level 9!  These are great results and we are proud of all our students for their hard work and participation!  A special thank you to all of the parents for your encouragement of this program! We wanted to give a special thank you to all of the teachers. We know that this program and so many others would not work as well as they do without their help and encouragement to all of our children.
