Dear Great Valley Community Members,

As we enter the spring, I am excited to not only look back on the great work that’s already happened this school year, but also ahead at the wonderful things to come! There is certainly no shortage of exciting events and happenings in our schools. From musicals and concerts, to art shows and athletic events, our students continue to showcase their abilities and achievements at all levels.

The School Board recently decided to implement a full-day kindergarten program in Great Valley that will begin next school year. The Board considered a number of factors in making its decision, including our enrollment, our facilities, our finances, and the potential impact on our youngest learners. Certainly, a full-day program will allow us to provide students with an even stronger foundation in critical literacy skills and social and emotional learning. I am grateful for our community’s involvement in our forums and at School Board meetings, and for the input provided through email and surveys. We look forward to building upon our already excellent kindergarten program to further engage our youngest learners in deeper learning that is developmentally appropriate and even better prepares them for later academic success.

The District has also begun work to study the long-term needs of our district from a facilities standpoint. As you’ve probably noticed in the community, our population is growing! That growth certainly impacts our schools. Over the next year, the District will work with an architectural firm and a demographer to assess our needs for the future and to develop plans that support our community.

If the cold weather has kept you away these last few months, I hope that the spring allows you time to visit our schools. There are many student productions, athletic events, and special opportunities that shouldn’t be missed. I know all of us in Great Valley School District look forward to welcoming you!

Enthusiastically,

Regina Speaker Palubinsky, Ed.D.
