"Music Man" coming to Garden Grove for the 2014-2015 school year.

Music with an academic common core focus for all grade levels.  Craig Newton will be at Garden Grove for 10 sessions each semester. Lessons include: What's the connection between country and western music and an Irish jig? Where was the drum invented, and what music resulted from this? What was the 1850's equivalent of a rock concert?


These are some of the questions that Craig Newton answers or explores , as he carries the audience from the roots of American music -- English-Irish-Scottish folk songs -- to the present day scene of rock, pop, and more. To make the music come alive, Craig uses a variety of instruments including acoustic and electric guitars, mandolin, banjo, flute, tin whistle, harmonica, trombone, and others. Using sing-alongs and fun songs, Craig lets the audience experience the different styles of music that make up "American Music".

Thank you PTA!

Peaceful Playground

Peaceful Playground is a new program that was purchased with part of last year’s jog-a-thon money.  It has several components that have made it successful, and we believe that Garden Grove is the FIRST in Simi Valley to purchase the program rights.  Peaceful Playground is designed to put an end to most playground conflicts that take the fun out of games, while teaching students important life skills. Six key principles of a Peaceful Playground include:

  1. Teaching students a consistent universal set of rules so that there are fewer disagreements
  2. Teaching new games to all students so there are more choices. (Check out Four Corners!)
  3. Teaching all students skills to solve conflicts (walk/talk/rock, paper, scissors)
  4. Providing adequate equipment (new equipment has been purchased for each grade level)
  5. Providing universal consistent expectations and positive reinforcement for good sportsmanship
  6. Marking the playground with new age appropriate games (more to be completed soon)
