Face Masks for our Future
A group of Valley alumni have kindly created a GoFundMe to raise funds to buy a face mask for each Valley student. The first $500 raised will be matched by a Valley Alum family. The hope is to raise the funds quickly in order to get masks to students returning to campus in October. To donate or share the link, visit gf.me/u/yy3n43

PTA Membership Drive
Calling all Valley families! The time is now to join the Valley PTA because Adventure Awaits! Even though this school year is not like most, we still promise to bring as much fun as possible. We are also still supporting our wonderful teachers and staff, so every little bit helps. Follow the link below to join, Adventure Awaits! https://jointotem.com/ca/poway/valley-elementary-pta
Box Tops for Education (BTFE)
Recently, BTFE has moved from clipping box tops to a digital program which requires you to scan your grocery receipts onto the BTFE app. The app will scan your receipt for participating products and then award the money to Valley PTA. It is a very simple way to raise money for our school all year long. If you haven't already downloaded the app, please do so and start scanning your receipts. You can also email receipts from online purchases to get credit. See the BTFE website for more information: www.boxtops4education.com

Hello, Valley Elementary parents! Welcome to the 2020-21 school year! My name is Heather Schmalbach and this will be my second year as your Valley PTA president. At Valley, we are fortunate to have amazing teachers, staff, and parents. Together, I know we will find new and creative ways to make this a successful – and memorable! – year for our kids. The challenges are real, but as a community we have many strengths. We have chosen the theme “Adventure Awaits” for the PTA this year. I hope you will agree it is a perfect fit! An adventure involves the exploration of unknown territory, which is exactly what we face this school year. It can be intimidating, but thankfully we are not alone on this particular adventure.
The primary goals of the PTA this year will be to keep our Valley community connected and strong, and to support our students, staff, and parents. Although current health guidance restrict volunteers on campus, there are still 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, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org 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). While our in-person family events are on hold thru December, funds raised will still go toward supporting teachers, providing resources for students, maintaining the running of the PTA, and funding events once circumstances allow.
One thing about this year remains unchanged from every other year we have been a PTA at Valley… by working together, we can accomplish great things for our children.
