The Grand Canyon staff welcomes you to the 2019-2020 school year!
I am very excited about the great opportunities in this new school year. The staff and I are steadfastly continuing to work toward our goal of being the number one school district in the State of Arizona. We have all our staff in place and are ready to take our school district forward and upward.
Great things are happening at every level! We are very excited to have a new Pre-K program beginning in early September, coordinated by Dr. Karen Lehman. We are excited to have new teachers in First Grade, Second Grade, Elementary Art, MS History, MS ELA, K-12 Music, and HS Science and PE. Additionally, we have skilled new coaches in MS Soccer and HS Volleyball to carry on the winning tradition of the Grand Canyon Phantoms.
As your new principal, I am honored and excited to lead the school. I have a long history within the Grand Canyon School District. Last but not least, we have a dedicated, knowledgeable and experienced leadership team ready to take the Grand Canyon Schools to new heights of achievement.
This last week we have had teacher orientation and professional development for the faculty. The first day of school is August 5, 2019. The Open House scheduled for Tuesday August 13th with more details to come soon. Please use the website as a resource to see what is happening within our schools and district. We are immensely proud of the work our students and staff do every day!
We are looking forward to seeing everyone on the first day to begin the journey together!
Matthew Yost, Principal
Hello, I’m Hap Maxwell, GCHS Class of 1968. My sister Jeannine Maxwell, Class of 1965 (pictured in the summer snow to the right) along with my good friend Judy Lee Walker, class of 1979, are working with Superintendent Shonny Bria and Principal Matt Yost to mobilize alumni in support of ongoing efforts to bring high-speed internet to the school.
For some background on the high speed internet project, see this short synopsis, or checkout this presentation for the gory details.
The image below is the beginning of our alumni association, that's Matt Yost, the new incoming principle on the left, Judy Lee Walker next, then John Quinn and I'm on the right.
We hope to have a Grand Canyon School Alumni Association up and running in a little while, and will be reaching out to all the Alumni we know about in the near future. If you haven't heard from me, and would like to be included, please contact the school at the contact information at the bottom of this page.
