One of the great things about Midvale Park is the strong partnership we have with Grijalva Elementary School under the leadership of Principal Chuck Bermudez. We hold all our meetings at the School (even when school isn't in session they come in to help us out), they help promote neighborhood events on the marquee, they have turned out several times to help clean Grijalva Park, they took on the East Egg Event this year, and of course last but not least, the students, teachers, and staff made the dedication of US Army Specialist Christopher J. Moon a very special day for everyone! Thanks Grijavla Elementary! Thanks to neighbors like you Midvale Park is a better place!
Our nearest school is Grijalva Elementary School 1795 W Drexel Rd
Terry Higuera has organized a school supply donation effort in response to the "free shotgun" giveway program that you may have read about in the news.
On Monday May 20th at 8:15AM the Midvale Park Neighborhood Association and TUSD along with a number dignitaries representing the military, Federal, State, and local governments and countless friends and neighbors will dedicate the multi-use field in Grijalva Park in honor of US Army Specialist Christopher J. Moon. The Moon family graciously consented to allow us to dedicate this field to their son who died as a result of hostile action in Afghanistan in 2010. We want this day to be a celebration of his life and achievements! Please plan to attend this very special event! The field is located at 1795 W Drexel Road behind Grijalva Elementary School - as part of the dedication Grijalva 5th Graders will take the field and play a game with their teachers.
