    Valley View Elementary School donated over 500 lbs of food to the Interfaith Food Pantry for the holiday season! Co-teachers, John Larkin and Amy Falk helped facilitate this food drive. (Mr. Larkin, who is not in this picture, was busy kicking off the food drive by running the Marine Corps Marathon in Washington D.C.) Valley View takes pride in giving back to our local communities and providing food to those who may be less fortunate. Have a happy and healthy Thanksgiving!

  • 150 Dear Parents and Guardians, As noted in a recent letter, Valley View parents have reported several cases of pneumonia.  The children who became ill were not clustered in a grade level but were scattered throughout the building.  To date all children are back in school and no new cases were reported today.  Additionally, our School Nurse has been in direct contact with the local and state Health Departments and our Cleaning Services. All appropriate protocols are in place.  As is requested when children exhibit cold, flu, or pneumonia symptoms (a cough, running nose and fever), please keep them home until 24 hours fever free without fever-reducing medicine.  When in doubt…a visit to your primary care provider is always advised.  Thank you,  Dr. Kennedy,  Principal / Debra Barmore,  School Nurse

    Friday, October 19th, Fireman A.J. came to Valley View to talk to Miss Profeta’s, Mrs. Warfield’s, and Mrs. Golini’s class about fire safety. The students came up with many questions to ask the fireman before he came. The students loved talking to about fire safety with the fireman. We all got chief badges and some of our friends got to try on fireman gear. We had a wonderful time and we thank Fireman A.J. for coming to talk to us!

    On September 27, almost 60 of Valley View's 5th graders participated in the national Exercise US event in honor of National Childhood Obesity Awareness Month.  Children in the United States exercised for 10 continuous hours as schools signed up for 15-minute time slots throughout the day.  Valley View kicked off the event from 8 am to 8:15 am.  When they finished at 8:15 am, new schools started their 15-minute portion from 8:15 am to 8:30 am.  This pattern continued for 10 hours until the event concluded with schools on the west coast.  The event was organized at our school by Mr. Saunders, our Physical Education Teacher.  Great job to all our 5th-grade participants.
