A Message from the Director
July 23, 2014
Dear Students and Parents of Valley Academy,
We are looking forward to our third year at Valley Academy. We are excited for school to begin on Monday, August 11, 2014. Our first summer school was a huge success. The student teachers visiting from Korea were a great asset to our summer program, and we look forward to them returning during their winter break. Our first summer lunch program was also successful and attended by hundreds from the Hurricane community. We would like to thank Cory and Jill for their expertise in directing this program.
For the first time ever, Valley Academy will be offering bus service. Our two bus routes will be on our website soon and also included in an email home. We are hopeful that this will be an added incentive to attend Valley Academy, and a convenience to those that have been driving students each day.
We are excited to announce our new faculty and staff for the coming Year. Kandis White will be teaching 7/8th Language Arts, Jennifer Davis 3rd grade, and Karlene Young 1st grade. Ben Klepper is home from China and will be teaching our Spanish classes. Megan Romney is our new lunch worker, and Dayne Wood is working in maintenance.
On Friday August 8th, we will open our doors to parents and students for Meet Your Teacher Day. The following Thursday, August 14, 2015 will be our “Back to School Night.” This will be for parents only. We would like to take this opportunity to inform parents about policy, routines, schedules, calendaring and discuss how we plan to communicate with parents and school during the coming year.
We are very willing to hear from parents at this event, and lend our support to making this a positive and effective school year. We are very appreciative of all that you do. We look forward to working with you, that together we might create the most positive learning experience ever for your children.
