2022 Grand Valley State University Charter Schools Office Core Values Award
I am happy to announce that we were the recipients of the 2022 Grand Valley State University Charter Schools Office Core Values Award. The GVSU CSO Office has five core values: inquiry, inclusive and equitable community, innovation, integrity, and international perspectives. For 2022, the award was presented for the value of innovation. Greenspire won for its work as a pilot school for a new teacher evaluation model in the state called the Michigan Transformational Evaluation Model (8E). We are honored to win this award ?



As the weather warms, please make sure students have appropriate clothes on when coming to school.  While we do spend a significant amount of time outdoors and it can get hot like this week, clothing must be appropriate for school.  

Community Surveys
Beginning last year, we created surveys to send to our community members each spring.  Students, teachers, staff, and parents/guardians are asked to complete these surveys so that we can continue to improve Greenspire and examine trends over time.  

Early next week in a separate email, parents/guardians will be sent the parent/guardian edition of the Climate and Culture Survey.  We ask that you complete the survey by Friday, May 27th and that you only submit one response per parent/guardian.  We thank you for your time and appreciate your feedback.  

Positivity Project
This week’s trait is Teamwork.  Please see the attached letter to families.
