WELCOME BACK for the 2012-2013 school year at Valley View Elementary!
You are invited to our first PTA meeting in the VVE Library on Wednesday, August 22 at 8:05am. Our first meeting will feature an overview of the year ahead. Check us out! See what we're all about. Get connected! There's no better way to know what's happening at Valley View. PTA membership helps connect us: the school, the staff, the parents - one community.
Be sure to turn in your PTA Membership forms into the office, or come to any PTA meeting to drop them off. At the same time, why not drop off your Directory form, which we need in order to pass out the PTA Directories as soon as the classroom assignments are settled.
Also, please take a moment and fill out the new Volunteer Opportunities form.
Valley View culture has a long history of parental involvement. It's just part of what makes our community special. You can participate even if you can't come to meetings or be on campus during the day. Whether you have 30 minutes or a couple of hours, your ideas, your time, and your talents are truly needed. Whether it's gardening or building, sign-making or record-keeping, we could use your talents on campus as well as at-home projects to be used for events.
You've already signed up for our weekly newsletter. Now like us on Facebook!
Also, check out our website calendar for updates on what's happening at Valley View. Stay informed! Get involved! We can't do all that we do without YOU!
Here's to a fantastic new year!

Annual Fundraising Drive
Welcome back to Valley View and a whole new school year! As the dust settles after our first week back, I just wanted to remind you that an Annual Fund request was sent home in your welcome packet. Please consider a contribution to our school and our kids as PTA fundraisers support our library, TAs, school events, and campus maintenance. You may give with a check or online.
Our goal is to raise $20,000 with this fundraising campaign and every dollar counts. I hope to see you all at the PTA meeting next Wednesday!
