Welcome To Valley Academy
March 20, 2016
We have some wonderful students at Valley Academy, and many highly qualified teachers. I am proud of their performance, and their dedication to Valley’s mission. We are making great gains academically and have seen our Visual and Performing Arts classes grow and develop into some very outstanding and exceptional courses.
I appreciate your support as parents. Having you involved in your child’s learning is vital to their success, and to the success of Valley Academy. Thank you for all of your efforts, your participation and involvement in their education.
We are looking forward to our 5th year at Valley Academy. We continue to enroll new students and have openings in most of our grades K-8th.
Our state funding is figured on the average daily attendance, and some on overall enrollment. Please make every effort to see that your children are at school each day, and on time. The start to a successful day is when all students are present in the classroom and ready for announcements, teacher instructions, and to hear the schedule for their school day.
We have hired a new faculty member in our music department. Mrs. Nancy Guymon has been teaching at Valley Academy for the past week. Nancy is an amazing music teacher with several degrees, and years of experience. Her resume is impressive, with experience at the university level, K-12, and also trained in the Beverly Taylor Sorenson Arts Learning Program. This program was created in 2009 to enhance the social, emotional, academic and arts learning of students in kindergarten through grade six by integrating arts teaching and learning into other core subject areas and providing professional learning for positions that support arts education. She is available to meet with you and extends an open invitation to you to observe her and the students as she provides rich arts integrated learning for students.
We look forward to our Arts Night on April 11th, 2016, at 7:00 pm.
Our Visual Arts teacher Lori Wrankle, our students and teachers have created some amazing Art. We are excited to share with you their work and the positive impact the arts have on student learning. We are fortunate to have Lori’s expertise and her vision for the arts that she brings to Valley Academy.
It is my personal goal to keep our students safe, happy and in a learning environment where they will thrive. I will provide your children with caring and competent teachers, and will make myself available to listen to your concerns and ideas. I will leave my door open for productive, and meaningful communication. I will not allow for unprofessional conduct, and will do all I can to eliminate the hear say and gossip that would tear down, or destroy Valley Academy employees, or its mission.
Once again, this is your school, your children, and we are so excited you have made it your choice for a quality education.
Director Valley Academy Charter School.
