Belvidere 5th Grader Wins School Spelling Bee

Congratulations to the winner of the Belvidere Spelling Bee!  Clint Schmidt spelled his way to gold Tuesday night, with the winning word “neigh.”  He’s been a student at Belvidere since Kindergarten.  Luke Foster, a 5th grader, took second place in the event.  He was followed by Austin Willis who placed third.  Good luck to Schmidt, who will now go on to the Jackson County Bee, held early next spring. Great effort by all 18 contestants!  

Meadowmere PTA Honored with 2014 Missouri PTA Parent Education & Involvement Award

Meadowmere’s PTA’s effort to promote the national STEM initiative last school year, with its annual Science Night went unnoticed. The organization was recently recognized by the National PTA and awarded the 2014 Missouri PTA Parent Education and Involvement Award.

Meadowemere Elementary PTA Science Night had activity booths pertaining to Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Aerodynamics, Electricity and Robotics. The national organization recognized the event as an excellent example of how PTA’s can make a difference in children’s lives.

This initiative has started Meadowmere’s PTA members on a path to bring much more science to our school and community!

GC-4 Trivia Night a Huge Success!

Not only was there plenty of fun to be had at this year's Trivia Night, but enough money was raised to help continue the mission of the Grandview Education Foundation.  This year’s event raised the most money out of any Trivia Night GEF has had so far and it has the GC-4 community to thank for it.  More than $9800 was raised.  GEF uses the funds to support Innovative Teaching and Staff Grants, scholarships to GHS graduating seniors and other special events.

Congratulations to the winners:
 1st place-Got Brains?
 2nd place-Natural Disasters
 GC4 History Trivia winner-Pam Pinkerton

Thank you to all the sponsors, participants and GHS class of ’85 alum KMBZ’s Krista Martin Klaus and class of ’85 alum Greg Martinette who were honorary emcees!
