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.
