From Mrs. Palmer:
My favorite GPS moment happens every time I walk the halls and see students of all ages participating in activities and learning with a smile. I have worked in a variety of settings over the years, and not one compares to Grandview. Students are performing in the playground, singing in the Great Room, creating robotic arms in the makerspace, dancing and exercising to express their creativity, working cooperatively to master a new science skill or math equation, writing a creative essay or just absorbing information, all while participating in a sport or club. Grandview students are well-rounded and active participants of their learning. Those are my favorite moments . . . ALL of them!
