SCHOLASTIC BOOK FAIR and READ-A-THON PLEDGES
Valley PTA's Read-a-thon was very successful at getting our kids excited about reading! The Scholastic Book Fair will be in the Library the week starting October 21st. Parents are welcome before and after school too! Students will be visiting the book fair during their regular library times. Contact your child's teacher for exact schedule. Students who collected Read-a-thon pledges will redeem their vouchers (held in the library) to purchase books at the book fair. Join us as a volunteer at the book fair! https://www.signupgenius.com/go/20F0A48AFA72EA6FF2-2019

Hello, and welcome to the 2019/2020 school year at Valley Elementary! My name is Heather Schmalbach and I am honored to be your new PTA president. Our very talented and dedicated team of Officers and Committee Chairs has already been working hard to make this a fantastic year.
One of the primary missions of the Valley PTA is to build our school community by facilitating volunteer opportunities for our parents, supporting our Valley teachers and staff, and planning fun family events that lead to positive, lasting memories for our Valley Tigers.
A strong PTA is formed with high parent involvement. It speaks of a great school community committed to a great education and experiences for our children. We are parents who work full-time, part-time, or are available to volunteer during the day. Some of us have little ones and take on projects that can be completed at home (hopefully during naptime!). Some love to plan big events, while others would rather help in the classroom. One of us enjoys auditing the PTA’s finances! Whatever your passion, skill set, or availability, we welcome you to join the PTA and support your school. Together, we can do great things for our children!
