Dear Friends of Valley View,

We are already entering the holiday season and have so much to be thankful for here at VVES.  The students are growing emotionally, physically, and academically and are cared for deeply by our wonderful staff.   We also have many volunteers and visitors contributing to the education of our great students.  Valley View is a special place and we are extremely thankful for the time, effort, and resources that everyone gives us. 

The month of October we celebrated the character trait of responsibility.  With that said, it is my privilege to announce that the following students were named, Super Star Citizen of the Month:

Patrick Young, Reece Liermann, Aslynn Robbins, Sophia Jackson, Robert Kelsey, Claire Hoggan, Makai Wehner, Aaron Tadlock, Bailey Spencer, David Shiflett, Allison Carrington, Paige Sartell, Rylie Kimball, Eli Blackmore, Sydney Hinthorn, Alexis Vandecoevering, and Loren Huggins.  Please congratulate these very responsible students when you get a chance and look for their picture in the Nov. 17th Bonners Ferry Herald.

At VVES, we have some upcoming events that I would like to share with you. 

  • Wednesday, Nov. 9th-  VVES Thanksgiving Lunch!  If you plan to come please fill out the form that your child brought home and return it to school.  We look forward to eating lunch with you!
  • Thursday, Nov. 10th-  Veteran’s Day Celebration at the VVES flag!  If you know of a veteran please invite them to join us at 8:30am in front of the school.
  • Sunday, Nov. 20th- 2nd Annual Harvest Party-  Free Thanksgiving meal at the Middle School  from 3:00pm – 7:00pm.  Please RSVP with the Middle School for this event.

There is much more happening at our school and I would encourage you to visit us at our webpage for all upcoming events:

All the Best,

Mrs. Sheila Lavala has supported and taught students in Boundary County School District 101 for the past five years.  She has spent the last 3 years at Valley View Elementary School teaching students in the Title 1 program.  She plays a large role in our Title 1 room and is a leader within our great school.
The staff at VVES appreciate Ms. Lavala’s time, energy, and her positive attitude.  Another colleague stated, “she always puts students first and does a great job keeping them engaged.”  Mrs. Lavala is a wonderful team player who has a heart for all people and treats everyone with kindness.
Mrs. Lavala’s students like her because “she helps us with our work and makes it fun!”  Another student stated, “she makes me laugh while I’m learning.”
Mrs. Lavala has a husband and a son who is a senior at Bonners Ferry High School.  During her free time she enjoys watching her son play football and compete in pole vaulting in the spring.  She also enjoys gardening, organizing events for women throughout the inland northwest and working with her husband at Boundary Marital Arts.   
BCSD 101 is very lucky to have Mrs. Lavala within our district educating and supporting students.

Take a look at our school!
