Greenvale Park offers many fun opportunities for parents and students. Here are our annual activities and events.
Greenvale Park Student Council is comprised of a group of students chosen by their peers to represent them in working to improve the school. Student council is for students in grades three through five. There are two representatives per class. Student council representatives are voted in during the fall, and they represent their class for the entire school year. The representatives are also ambassadors to a younger classroom (grades K-2). The staff contacts for student council are Ryan Driscoll and Carrie Rice, at Ryan.Driscoll@nfld.k12.mn.us and Carrie.Rice@nfld.k12.mn.us.
Student council meets on the first Friday of each month at 7:50 a.m. in the media center.
Parent Teacher Conference Nights: Take advantage of free childcare during conferences. This allows for a more relaxed and focused conversation between parents and teachers.
PTO Dance-a-Thon: Each fall Greenvale Park’s Parent Teacher Organization sponsors this popular fund-raiser. Families should look for a Dance-a-thon Donation Letter to come home with their student. The PTO is asking families to contribute any amount that works for your family. On Dance-a-thon Day, the whole school will dance a set amount of time for the amount of money that is raised. The event culminates with a Family Dance Night. These funds will be used to help students afford field trips, help teachers have supplies and books they need in classrooms and provide donations to specialists (music, media, PE and art).
Fabulous Fridays: GVP’s Parent Liaisons are hosting a parent-child breakfast once a month. Each grade level will be invited once during the year to eat breakfast before school together in the cafeteria. Once classes begin for students, parents are invited to stay and listen to a speaker and connect with other parents.
Critters and Company Family Night: On Tuesday, November 27, parents and children are invited to attend a presentation that will include live animals with lessons focused on making good choices.
Evening of the Arts is planned by students and staff for shortly before spring break. The school becomes a festive museum for an evening, with paintings, pottery and other art forms displayed by Greenvale Park students. Families are invited to enjoy the displays and participate in “make and take” activities such as origami, clay beads, book-mark making, mask making, foil art, and paper printing. Live student performances include poetry reading, instrumental and vocal music.
The Greenvale Grandstand: In late May, the school community hosts an outdoor talent show and family picnic.
