Community Rock Garden
If your child is in a fully virtual classroom and has painted a rock for our Rock Garden, please bring your painted rock to any materials distribution and your teacher can collect them. On campus students can submit their rocks directly to their teacher. In case your child hasn't yet painted a rock and supplies are needed, reach out to Nila Boquin at email@example.com.

New Addition to the front of Valley!
This amazing mural on the front wall of the office building was created and donated by local muralist, Kristin Cervantes. Kristin has been a longtime volunteer for Valley’s ASES program and continued her generosity by bringing more color to the campus with a beautiful piece of artwork to motivate our school community. Please visit her Instagram page to see how it all came together and to show our appreciation!

Summer Reading Material
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

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 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). 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.
