Thank you to all of our parents who helped plan and run our Valentine’s Day Parties this past week! The students had a blast and truly enjoyed the time together! 

Please remember that school STARTS at 8 a.m., which means that students need to arrive prior to 8:00 a.m. in order to be ready for instruction to begin. Students can arrive starting at 7:45 a.m. and enter the building at 8:50, giving them time to unpack, chat with their friends and teachers, and get settled prior to instruction starting. If your child arrives at 8:00 a.m. or after, please be sure bring your child to the main entrance and come inside with him/her to sign your child in for the day. This is a safety measure for our students, as we need to make sure we know when students have arrived and can accurately account for them on our attendance in the morning. 

CogAT Assessments 

The CogAt Testing window for our 2nd – 5th Grade students opens next week. Parents with students in those two grades can access the official CogAT Assessment Letter for more details. Students completed practice tests in class to become familiar with the format of the test and the types of questions that they will be presented with during the assessment. I encourage parents to ensure that their child(ren) gets a good night sleep and has a healthy breakfast each day while the assessments are taking place. Our students will be testing on February 24th, 25th, and March 1st, with make-ups and other necessary sessions happening throughout the two weeks. 

5 Essentials Survey

Please click on the links below to a letter regarding an important survey for the parents of Grove Avenue School. The results of this survey will be included as a portion of our official School Report Card and school ranking next fall. As a result, your participation and input is important, as we need at least 20% of our parent population to participate. Students in grades four and five, as well as, the Grove Avenue Staff will be participating in the survey.


The survey will be open until the beginning of April, but please take a few minutes to complete the survey as soon as possible. It takes approximately 10 minutes to complete.

Due to the fact that our district office is located in Lake County, parents will need to choose Lake County at the login page in order to then access the Grove link. Links to the survey site are included in the letter! Please feel free to contact Mrs. Matthews directly with any questions regarding the survey.
