Holiday Edition                        

December 10, 2014

Friends of Valley View,

Well, that was certainly a fast year! When we return from our Holiday Break, our year will nearly be half over, or should I say “Half Full”! We have come a long way and, as we all know, we have a long way to go. This last week before Christmas Break is very active. On Monday night, the School Board will meet at 6:00 at Valley View. Our Student Council will present a report explaining the selected community service projects and school pride activities.

On the 17th, the VVES Christmas Program will be held in the BFHS Auditorium, at 6:00 PM. The Kindergarten, 4th and 5th grade students will give us the gift of music under the direction of Mr. David Carpenter. Punch and cookies will be served! On our final day before vacation, we will hold the VVES Geography Bee finals, at 2:00 to determine who will go to the State Championships.

Classified Employee of the Month

Mrs. Darla Evans is a member of the 1989 graduating class of Bonners Ferry High School. Since this time she has investeddarla.jpg in the children of Boundary County. Darla came to Valley View Elementary School nine years ago, after running a day care center in Moyie Springs. Her first job at VVES was an AmeriCorp position; this challenging position provides reading support for the at-risk student population. The skills she showed in this temporary position landed her a full-time career in the Life Skills Department at Valley View, where she has been for the last seven years.

Life Skills, in our public school, is for students with disabilities who need additional support in their social, behavioral and/or academic development. This is not work for the weary! It is a very hard job! Darla is a distinguished employee; she enjoys the students and they clearly respond to her attention! The students make tremendous gains under her guidance with the support of Matt Dinning, the certified member of the team. Darla enjoys the challenge. It is said best in her own words, “I am continually inspired and humbled by my students! They persist to make improvement, in spite of their challenges.” Darla is truly a beautiful person, inside and out! 

Darla is an avid outdoorswoman. Hunting, camping, kayaking, cross-country skiing are among her pass time activities. She has been married to her husband Doug, for 23 years. They have been blessed with two wonderful boys: Brenden is 19 years old and serving in the U.S. Army and Mat, 22 years, is headed to Graduate School at the University of Great Falls.
