While all sales will be handled online, the Big Frog storefront is located in Rancho Peñasquitos - not too far from Valley. You can pick up your order directly to avoid shipping charges.

Digital Box Tops 
All you need is your phone! Download the Box Tops app, shop as you normally would, then use the app to scan your store receipt within 14 days of purchase. The app will identify Box Tops products on your receipt and automatically credit our school's earnings online. Twice a year, our school will receive a check and can use that cash to buy whatever we need! Get more info at https://www.boxtops4education.com

Valley Parents, PTA needs you!
Our school would not have such an amazing community and wonderful activities without our PTA. Please consider joining the PTA board to help your child and all our children. This board position is for the 2024-2025 school year and can be done primarily from home and take only a few hours per month. Message Amy with interest or questions or email valleyroomparentcoordinator at gmail.com

Corresponding Secretary: Help the PTA stay on top of emails and other correspondence. This position can be done from home. You forward PTA emails to the appropriate board member and send thank you notes for donations we receive from the community. You need to be able to check email regularly. This is a great way to join the board and get to help your child's school!

GET READY! The PTA Annual Jog-a-thon Fundraiser starts Tuesday, February 27! 
Our PTA's most important and largest fundraiser of the year kicks off on Tuesday, February 27! Your students will participate in our kickoff assembly and flyers will be coming in your child's backpack. As in years past, there are time-sensitive actions that can earn your child FREE PRIZES just for participating! With the help of our Valley community, we look forward to another amazing and successful fundraiser!

Innovations Lab Update
We are moving forward with the first ever Innovation Lab (I lab) on Valley Elementary's campus! Through the hard work of Mrs. Ensberg and the Valley Elementary Educational Foundation, we received over $19,000 in grant funds to purchase science and technology equipment for the I lab - thank you OtterCares Foundation and Cal Coast Cares Foundation! 

Led by Mrs. Ensberg, a team of Valley teachers is working to design and align curriculum for the I lab, connecting to lessons currently underway at Valley such as Project Lead the Way, Benchmark and Mystery Science. The I lab curriculum will incorporate RIASEC career exploration and allow all Valley students a chance to explore future career opportunities through hands-on learning. 

By the end of this school year, we hope to have each Valley classroom experience at least one lesson in the I lab with regular monthly visits starting in the fall of 2024. We are excited to have STEAM Education opportunities elevated at Valley through the I lab. Stay tuned for more updates!

Hello Valley families, 
I’m Monica Landeros the 2023-2024 PTA president. This year marks my 10th year as a Valley Elementary parent. During my time here at Valley, I have been a PTA member, committee chair, and board member. I am a proud mother of three amazing children. My oldest son is a freshman at Poway High, my middle daughter is a 7th grader at Meadowbrook Middle School and my youngest son is a 3rd grader at Valley. I also work part-time as an instructional assistant and substitute teacher for the agriculture department at Poway High. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to be your leader and I vow to do my best!
