Election Day is Tuesday, April 2, 2019 - just two weeks away. On the ballot for voters living within school district boundaries is a school bond issue for $7.5 Million. Passage would allow us to do the following work at Grain Valley North Middle School

  1. Add three science lab classrooms (larger than standard-sized classrooms).
  2. Add ten standard-sized classrooms.
  3. Add a smaller classroom to be used for special education or other specialized instruction.
  4. Add a new open area/collaboration space.
  5. Add space for the district technology department to make room at our district office, which is also at capacity. This additional space can be converted to two standard-sized classrooms in the future.
  6. Convert two existing smaller classrooms into a larger instructional space for drama class.
  7. Add student restrooms.
  8. Add 52 parking spaces, primarily to the east side of the school.
  9. Equip all new classrooms.

One additional project being planned as an alternative bid associated with this school bond issue is the replacement of the artificial turf at the high school stadium. The current turf has exceeded its anticipated life expectancy and is due for replacement. (Image represents one possible look for the new turf.)



Passage of this bond issue does not require raising the district tax levy rate.

Volunteers needed for Grain Valley Assistance Council Moving Day
Individuals, families, and groups are invited to help the Grain Valley Assistance Council (GVAC) on their moving day on Saturday, March 30! GVAC is an affiliate of Community Services League of Jackson County serving adults and children in need within the Grain Valley Schools district boundaries.  The non-profit organization provides food, clothing and other assistance to those who financially qualify.

GVAC will be moving from the First Baptist Church of Grain Valley to their new location across the street to the east on March 30 beginning at 9:00 am. The new facility will allow GVAC to better serve patrons of Grain Valley as they will have a larger clothes closet, more room for food storage and a dedicated space for their work express coach.

If you would like to volunteer to help Grain Valley Assistance Council on their moving day, please be in the parking lot of the First Baptist Church of Grain Valley (207 W Walnut Street) at 9:00 am on March 30th.  Everyone is welcome to participate!

Volunteers needed to help build beds for kids

"No kid sleeps on the floor in our town!

Sleep in Heavenly Peace is a local non-profit organization that provides permanent suitable beds and bedding for children who would otherwise be sleeping on couches or even the floor.  Through volunteers and generous donations, bunk beds are built, assembled and delivered to these children.

Volunteers are needed to help build beds on March 30th from 8:00 am to 3:00 pm at Blue Springs Christian Church. If you, your family, or your organization would like to volunteer to help build beds for kids in need, please email us at news@gvr5.net by the end of the day on Friday, March 22.  Please include the following information in your email:

  • your contact name
  • your phone number
  • the number of people volunteering
  • how many volunteers are under 18.  (We will send you a liability waiver for kids to have a parent sign and bring with them to the build day.) 

This is an excellent opportunity for high school students to complete a few service hours.
