Friends of Valley View,
The second half of the school year will move like the wind! Many activities and special projects mark the way to the end of the year. Your attention to these events will help your child succeed! After Spring Break, March 30-April 2, all 3rd, 4th and 5th grade students will take the Idaho State Standardized Assessment, the new ISAT by SBAC (Idaho State Achievement Test by Smarter Balance). Please follow the link on the right hand side of this web page to get a better understanding of this new requirement. Knowledge is power!
Included with this edition of the PPP is a Student Residency Mid-Year Check required by Title One and a VVES Family Survey. The Homeless Survey helps us identify students and families that need additional support. This information is kept very confidential. The Valley View Family Survey will provide great information to me for program growth and improvement. Please return these by February 12th.
March 2nd marks the anniversary of Dr. Seuss’ Birthday! March 2nd through the 5th is “Read Across America Week”, which will be celebrated throughout our great country. Many activities toward this celebration will occur. To prepare for this commemoration a “Book Exchange” will be held during all of February. Please donate previously read children’s books to exchange for a new/used book! On Monday, Green Eggs & Ham will be served for lunch. Tuesday, the Book Exchange will be held; all students will receive a new book. Wednesday is PJ Day when we all “get comfortable” with a good book! Thursday is the day of the VVES Winter Carnival. New games and activities will be held, along with traditional favorites. Pizza will be served!!! You will also have the opportunity to register to vote for the upcoming BCSD Levy, at this evening event. The Carnival is a Boundary County Community event!

Note: Parking Change—Due to the needs of a Valley View student, an area in the south parking lot will be designated as a “Handicap Loading Zone”. This will eliminate some parking areas in this “Staff Only” parking area. Parents, please use the parking lot area in front of the school to load and unload your child(ren). Thanks!!!
