FROM PRINCIPAL’S DESK
Dear Mustang Families,
Welcome! We have many exciting school activities planned for the year, always returning to our vision:
Valley View Elementary prepares our students to be well-rounded individuals both academically and personally. Our students, staff, and parents work together to provide a safe, positive environment that fosters respect, independence, and a love of learning while valuing diversity.
Our school community works effectively because all of us — teacher, staff, parents, and students — make a commitment to being safe, being respectful, and being responsible. Our goal is to ensure that all students do their best in the classroom, on the playground, and in everything we do.
Our parent information handbook has been prepared as a resource for you, to acquaint you with the routine schedules, procedures and programs of Valley View. Please check it out on the Valley View website: https://www.wccusd.net/valleyview . Be sure to read the headlines, follow announcements, and check the school calendar which is linked to our website. If you have a question or need additional information, please don’t hesitate to a call the school office.
I truly believe that Valley View is a wonderful family in which to be a part. That means that if you have any concerns or questions, I count on you to let me know.
Welcome back! I wish you all a happy and productive year!
Ann Marie Marinakis, Principa
