Peaceful Playground is at Garden Grove!
Peaceful Playground is a playground system that is designed to put an end to most playground conflicts. Peaceful Playground teaches students important life skills using these six key principles:
SVUSD does not discriminate on the basis of age, gender, sexual orientation, ethnic group, race, ancestry, national origin, religion, color or disability in any program or activity.
Bullying Definition-- The actions of a student are INTENTIONAL, REPEATED, and HURTFUL acts, words, or other behavior which occurs in a relationship where there is an IMBALANCE OF POWER.
Please know that the teachers and administration take "bullying" incidents very seriously. And want to remind you that there is a difference between playground conflicts and "bullying".

GOLDEN PAW AWARDS
Garden Grove is proud of the weekly classroom awards earned by students that exemplify the philosophy of Garden Grove IMPACT Academy. Student recipients are eligible for a monthly drawing to earn "Time with the Principal" and a "Golden Paw Spirit Stick".Students who demonstrate exemplar behavior in one of 4 categories weekly are able to earn a Golden Paw Award – Teachers will give tickets weekly, and students come to the office and put their ticket in the appropriate container.
Every month one recipient from each of the four categories is randomly chosen to spend time with the Principal and they receive the Golden Paw Spirit Stick and their name on the web page.
