We need to have at least 19 PTA members at the meeting in order to approve changes to our bylaws* and vote in our nominating committee. No nominations will happen at the meeting (so you don’t have worry about showing up and leaving as a new nominee). If you joined PTA, you are a voting member and we need you! Come enjoy some coffee and pastries while hearing about what’s happening at Valley.

Parent Information Meeting on District Bond Measure
The Valley PTA invites you to a parent informational meeting with PUSD Superintendent, Dr. Marian Kim Phelps, and School Board President, Dr. Darshana Patel, on Wednesday, January 15th, in the Valley MPR from 6:30-8:00pm. Dr. Phelps and Dr. Patel will be discussing the new school bond measure (Measure P) that will be on the March 3, 2020 ballot. If passed, this bond measure would generate $448 million dollars to repair and upgrade the aging schools in our district by raising property taxes. Join us to learn more about what this bond measure means for our school.
Calling all Padawans and their favorite adults: join us for the family dances! Both dances will take place in the Valley MPR from 7:00-8:30 pm.

The cost is $10 per ADULT and includes a photo booth session and a dessert. Come with a Star Wars costume or just dress to impress.

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!
