Valley's 3rd Annual Online Auction is here!
Looking for a fun family outing near or far? Or to sign your student up for a new class or camp?! The Valley PTA's online auction has something for everyone at bargain prices. The auction opened Feb 22nd at 9 AM and will close at 9 PM on Wed Feb 26th. Pick-up for winning bids will be at Art in the Valley (or by special arrangement). Auction rules and bidding instructions were emailed out on Friday Feb 21st. We are hoping to raise enough money to buy new school library books!
Student Musicians needed!
We are looking for Valley student-musicians who would like to perform during a 10-minute slot at Art In the Valley on Friday, February 28th. The piano will be available, but students are welcome to bring other instruments as well. Singers are welcome, too! This is background music, so it's a perfect opportunity for a student who might not want to have all eyes on him/her. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if your student is interested. Spots are filled on a first-come basis.
Please Help With Art In The Valley!
Please consider signing up to help with Art in the Valley. We have had very few sign-ups for this and we need many hands to make it a success. For those that helped with Auction donations, thank you! If you plan on helping mount or pin artwork, thank you! There are many small shifts that need filling on the night of Art in the Valley. If you can help for 30-60 minutes on the night-of Friday, February 28th whether it be set-up, art/dessert table supervision, clean-up, etc. Please sign up here. Thank you! It's going to be a great night!
Mark your calendar: Spring Pictures, February 24, 2020
Spring Pictures will be taken on Monday, February 24th, right after we return from break. The pictures will be taken by Sumner Photography, who did the school portraits at the beginning of the school year. Please send a note with your student that Monday if you would like them to participate. Please direct any questions to the front office.
Art in the Valley—Save the Date 2/28
This fun event is Friday, 2/28 from 6:30 – 8:00pm at Valley. Every student at Valley will have their artwork displayed in the MPR and you can buy gift items made from their art. Perfect gift ideas for Mother’s Day and Father’s Day. You can enjoy delicious desserts, listen to music and make your own art. Our annual event will likely include a small silent auction (dependent on donations). Bring the whole family for an evening of fun, art and fundraising! Tickets are $2—includes dessert and drink. Children 3 and under are free.
Keep Clipping those Box Tops!
All clipped box tops must be turned in by February 28th. The Box Top App can be used for the duration of the school year. We are just about half way to our $800 goal. Please continue to clip and scan so we can watch Mr. Ceceña play Bean Boozled when we hit our goal. To learn more about the Box Top App and how to scan grocery receipts, go to www.boxtops4education.com.

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!
