Valley Spirit Wear
New and affordable t-shirt and sweatshirt designs for the entire family to show their Valley Tiger spirit are available at https://valleyspirit.itemorder.com/sale. 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

Read-A-Thon has Begun! Read-A-Thon Log Sheets & Pledges Due October 10!
The 2023 Read-A-Thon has begun! Help your child log their minutes and collect pledges from September 25 to October 6. Half of the money they raise will go directly to the teachers for purchasing books for the classroom! Students will get to spend the other half at the Scholastic Book Fair that begins on October 16! Remember to turn in the packets and pledge money NO LATER THAN October 10. The classes (one from TK-2nd, one from 3rd-5th) that read the most minutes will win an extra recess with the Principal!​

Volunteers needed to tally Read-A-Thon Minutes on October 12
We need your help counting up the minutes from the Read-A-Thon on Thursday morning, October 12 in the MPR. Please click this link to sign up! Thank you so much!

Donate to the All For Books Campaign to help all our Tigers enjoy the book fair!
We are collecting donations and asking families to round up on their purchases at our upcoming book fair, October 16 – 20, to support our All For Books Campaign so that all students in our school can experience BookJoy. The money raised will go towards vouchers for some of our students in need and any remaining funds will be used to stock our school library. Better yet, Scholastic will match our All for Books donations one for one to use across the country to support other families and schools. Please check out this link for more information about the All for Books program. Please follow this link to donate. If you own a local business and would like to support our All for Books campaign, please contact Julie at julie.treasurer at gmail.com.

Valley Parents, PTA needs you!
There are a few positions that need to be filled to keep our PTA programs running smoothly for the 2023-24 school year.

Please contact us at valleypta@yahoo.com if you are interested in filling one of these positions or if you have any questions. We'd love to have you join us!
