Friends of Valley View,
Reading is the most important skill you can teach a child! Of all the skills children learn, it is the one you can influence the most. We invite you to visit our Scholastic Book Fair and experience a celebration of reading that provides families the opportunity to get involved in a universal mission: encouraging kids to open a world of possibilities!
Our Scholastic Book Fair theme is: Sir Readalot’s Castle: Enter the Kingdom of Books! This theme surrounds our students in a celebration of reading with hundreds of fun, engaging, affordable books for them to discover. Giving kids access to good books and the opportunity to choose their own books will motivate them to read more. Like most acquired skills, the more kids practice reading, the better they’ll get.
Reading is vital to every child’s success, and raising kids as readers means getting involved while they’re young. Now is the time! Since there will never be a substitute for a parent’s direct involvement in a child’s education, please make plans to visit our Book Fair. I will plan to see you there!
Book Fair Dates: October 13-16
Shopping Hours: 8:00-4:30 Monday – Wednesday & 8:00-
Special Events: Family Night & Free Dinner Thursday,
Oct. 16 beginning at 5:00
Before you visit the Book Fair be sure to download the FREE Book Fairs App to help you find the right books for your child. For more information, visit: scholastic.com/apps/bookfairs. If you’re all booked up during Book Fair Week, be sure to visit the Book Fair online at scholastic.com/fair.
Finally, I know and understand communication issues! Miscommunication causes 99% of the World’s problems. I came across the following website that might be of service: http://www.simplesimonandco.com/2014/08/25-ways-ask-kids-school-today-without-asking-school-today.html The basic theme and idea is listed below. I wish I had this list when my kids were young. Enjoy!

Gary Pflueger, Principal
In closing, a poem in support of the Book Fair:
The more you read, the more you know,
The more you know, the smarter you grow,
The smarter you grow, the stronger your voice
When speaking your mind or making a choice!
Please do not drive to the back of our building before or after school. This area is for staff parking and bus pickup/drop off only. This is a student safety issue!
Take a look at our school!
