Hello Valley School Family,

We are embarking on the last half of our school year.  Our building is full of returning students and a solid number of new students.  Our goal is to meet all of our students where they are and to grow them as learners, both academically and as individuals ready for their life after high school.

On January 16, the MCVSD #51 Lunch Lizard (our cafeteria on wheels) will start serving Valley School students lunch on our campus.  WCCC high school students will also be able to get their lunches from the Lunch Lizard.  We are very pleased to welcome the Lunch Lizard, which will provide hot, nutritious food for our students.  Lunches will be available Monday through Thursday from 11:15 – 11:35.  If there is no school on Monday, the Lunch Lizard will be here Tuesday through Friday.

It is important to note that students MUST have their school ID and an established lunch account through the school district.  If students have been approved for Free/Reduced meals, they will be able to access that benefit through the Lunch Lizard.  No cash will be accepted at this time; however, we hope to have that available soon.  Information to help you set up a meal account or apply for Free/Reduced status is attached to this e-mail. 

Valley School has many educational and fun activities planned for semester 2.  You may find a list of those activities as we get them scheduled, as well as the permission slips for current trips, by clicking on the “Wednesday Drive” icon on the home page of our website. 

We plan our activities to offer students the opportunity to earn academic credit in several core areas at once through the exploration of the world around us.  We want them to experience learning outside of the traditional classroom to instill a love of learning and to value building relationships with peers and the adults that support them in their journey through high school.

Thank you for letting us be a part of your child’s life.  We want to partner with you to make the Valley School experience a positive and successful one.
