Summer Reading Program
Principal Pflueger Press
June 3rd Final Edition 2013-2014
Friends of Valley View,
On Thursday, the 5th of June, the school year will end at 12:20! BUT LEARNING DOES NOT END! This summer, please do the best you can to keep the written word in front of your children. Have your child read daily!!! Math games and writing activities will keep all of our students on an even keel. Like any body part, the brain will atrophy without exercise. Give your child the challenge they need to keep up with their peers or even move beyond.
This summer, the Valley View School Library will be open on Thursdays, June 19th to July 31st from 11:00-2:00. During this time, our library and computer lab will be available for current students. Lunch will be served! Debbie Pauls, Teresa Rae and Sheila Lavala will work with the school and community librarians to make this special summer program shine!
Written on the back of this letter, is a list of free educational Internet Sites. If you need a computer, please see the attached letter; this is a pretty good deal!!! If you do not have the Internet, the Public Library is at your disposal. The Boundary County Public Library is a special place!
Speaking of the Public Library:
Two notes to finish up with:
On behalf of the staff, I would like to thank you for another positive school year. We, at VVES, are looking forward to another great school year. Challenges make us stronger! I sincerely appreciate the trust this community has offered me. I look forward to leading this program deep into the 21st Century.
Respectfully submitted by,
Gary Pflueger, Principal
P.S. READ, READ & READ some more! Write letters and poems! Play math games! Play together, love each other, and stay positive! Stay healthy, exercise and eat well! Success begins in the home! Occasionally stop, hug your child and take a quick look for head lice (they really never go away).
Have a Great Summer! And remember………………..
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!
Have a Safe, Civil & Productive summer!!!
