From the Principal

What is a growth mindset? The Big Life Journal describes a growth mindset as:
At GVA-DC, we love how growth mindsets embrace failure and mistakes for the opportunity they provide to learn and get better!!
Early Pick-up
  • If you need to pick up students early from school near the end of the day, please pick them up by 3:00 pm. The closer it is to 3:30 pm the more difficult/disruptive it is to call students out of class.
ENCORE Pick-up
  • If your student is participating in ENCORE classes this quarter, we ask that you pick them up in their ENCORE classrooms each evening. 
  • Parents/Guardians can enter through the rear door (nearest the playground) and proceed up to assigned classrooms. Room numbers are posted on both the front and rear door. 
  • Students that are also enrolled in Innovation Learning will be escorted to the IL classrooms at the conclusion of ENCORE by their teachers.
  • Pizza Hut Pizza Day has moved from Tuesdays to Mondays (every week). 
Adult French Classes at GVA-DC
Sylvie Deloge from the Alliance Fran├žaise will be teaching French classes for adults at Global Village Academy beginning the week of September 24th and ending December 10th. The two classes being offered are:
  • French A1.1 (for complete beginners) on Mondays from 6:00 to 8:30 pm.

Registration information will be forthcoming.
