The Board of Directors announced today that the new campus site that has been purchased, cleaned, painted, and furnished will hold a second Open House for those who may not have been able to attend the first one, held on Thursday, July 10th. At the first Open House it is estimated that between 250 and 300 parents, students, prospective students, grandparents, and other interested persons attended.
The location, called “the Norwoodville site” of Grand View Christian School is located at E. 29th and Broadway, located in the NE Metro Des Moines area. The Board of Directors officially purchased the site in the middle of June 2014.
A Second Open House has been planned for Thursday, July 24, 2014 from 6:30 to 8:00 p.m. Tours will be available by faculty, administrative staff, Board members, and volunteers to see the refreshed rooms and the different areas of the school for the grades Pre-K through Grade 12. Refreshments will be served for those who attend. All interested parents, prospective and current students, their friends and neighbors of Grand View Christian School are invited to visit, ask questions, take a tour, and get information.
