The Mar Vista Neighborhood Association donated $300 to Grand View Elementary School in Mar Vista so that teachers can buy student project materials and teacher supplies.

Grand View is at 3951 Grand View Blvd., Mar Vista, and is part of the Los Angeles Unified School District.

The Mar Vista Neighborhood Association “has become a benefactor to Grand View in assisting the school to become one of the finest in the area,” said Susan Black-Feinstein, director of the neighborhood association.

“With help from the community, as well as parent and teacher involvement and bond measures that are coming to fruition, Grand View is becoming an even more enriched learning environment under the leadership of principal Ruben Valles,” she said.

The 2005-2006 academic year, began Tuesday, September 6th. Valles is beginning his third year as school principal.
