A message from your Principal
It is my pleasure to welcome you to Valley School! Our staff takes very seriously the job we have
working with children and partnering with parents and guardians to deliver high quality education.
We want to give students every opportunity that we can to help them be successful.
The Valley School serves students in grades K-8, taking them on an academically rigorous journey
through the Core Knowledge curriculum and Saxon Math while emphasizing citizenship and creativity.
Time is intentionally built into the daily schedule to provide one-on-one instruction and learning
help when and where needed. Student progress is gauged against the student’s own work rather than
his or her classmates and intrinsic motivation strategies are incorporated into the curricular model.
Students have numerous opportunities to develop skills essential to their success. We support
students in developing self-management and control through Positive Behavioral Interventions and
Supports (PBIS) and Sound Discipline. These programs are guidelines for our consistent school-wide
discipline work and in our efforts of teaching students important self-management behavior. Valley
School also provides up-to-date technology throughout the school including the use of Smartboards,
iPads, desktop and laptop computers to support student learning. Additionally, all students have
the opportunity to participate in Art, Music and P.E.
Parents are essential partners in our efforts to continually improve. We encourage parent
involvement in improvement planning, participating in events that the school sponsors, and working
with staff in supporting each child’s educational journey. We have numerous opportunities for
parents to become more directly involved with school. We have annual back-to-school Open House,
fall and spring student-led conferences, music programs and drama productions, and parent
involvement meetings throughout the school year to mention a few.
Please feel free to contact me if you would like more information about Valley School. I look
forward to visiting with you!
Valley School Principal
