Book Release Event

Courage isn’t just for superheroes, as Grandhaven Elementary Learning Resource Center students found out. On Friday, May 23, teacher Jolene Heinrich read from the new children’s book The Boy Who Learned Upside Down to help her struggling students identify themselves as courageous learners and engage them in a series of innovative “I CAN!” exercises inspired by the book, written by a local author. Jolene Heinrich’s students each received a free copy of Boy donated by The Standard Charitable Foundation of Portland.
Students from McMinnville High School’s Media Arts Program videotaped the event, producing a video to raise awareness about the struggles and success of children with barriers to learning.

Touch a Truck Event

In celebration of the 2014 National Public Works Week, the McMinnville Public Works Department brought their trucks to Grandhaven for the Touch a Truck event. The Kindergarteners learned about the various trucks and how they are used to keep our streets and parks safe and useable. They also learned that water is a limited resource and how the Public Works Department keeps our water safe and clean.
The weather cooperated and the Kindergartners had a fantastic time climbing aboard all of the big trucks. Thank you McMinnville Public works Department! Slide Show
