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

Field Day May 25th - Volunteers Needed
The PTA is hosting Field Day for grades K-5 on 25 May from 8:00-11:30. In order to make this event a success, we need lots of volunteers. The only qualification to volunteer is to present a COVID vaccination card or negative PCR test taken within 3 days of the event . This is a really fun event for the kids. Please sign up for a station using this Sign Up Genius link and know that you will get to see your child when they compete at that station. You will sign in and out at the back gate. Please have your vaccination card or PCR test results with you. Also, please plan on staying until 11:30. Thank you! Questions? julie.treasurer at gmail.com

Hello, Valley Elementary Community! I am incredibly pleased to Welcome you to the 2021-22 school year! My name is Monica Valdez, and I am honored to begin my term as your PTA president. We have all experienced such unprecedented challenges over the course of the last year and a half; But, with our amazing teachers, staff, and parents, as well as our talented team of PTA Officers and Committee Chairs, I know we will make this a year to remember for our kids. This year we have chosen the theme “Be a part of the Magic” for our PTA. And, with the support and participation of our whole Valley Family it will undoubtedly be a Magical year for all.
The primary goals of the PTA are to keep our Valley community connected and strong, and to support our students, staff, and parents. In person events and volunteering opportunities will remain limited for the time being, but there are still many ways to get involved. First, join us by becoming a member of the PTA. A strong PTA membership is a sign of a committed and engaged community. Please click on the “Join PTA” link on the left side of this page to join. Second, email us at email@example.com and let us know if you have ideas on how to meet our goals of connecting and supporting our school community this year and can volunteer your time to help put those ideas into action. Third, you can support the PTA by participating in our fundraising efforts throughout the year (Charleston Wrap, Friends of Valley, and the Jog-A-Thon). As circumstances allow, the funds raised will help us fund field trips, host our many family events such as the welcome back dinner, Boogie Bash and Family dances to name a few. The funds also help support and train teachers, provide resources for students, support art projects and promote a healthy lifestyle with programs such as Tiger Trackers.
We have all endured so much, but the worst hopefully is behind us. I am confident that with the support of our amazing community we will build an incredible year for our children.
