Greetings Valley students and families,
I feel it's safe to say that fall has officially arrived! Sweatshirts, turning leaves and shorter days are upon us and that means we are moving well through the first semester. At Valley, a sense of normalcy and predictability have settled in and things are going well.
Take care of each other this weekend, and make sure to appreciate the beauty of the colors of nature for the next few weeks before all the trees are bare.
ValleyFest is tomorrow and we are still recruiting volunteers. With over 400 shifts that need filled, we're looking for lots of people – here is the signup link: http://bit.ly/ValleyFest23
Please feel free to send this signup link to older siblings, extended family, friends and alumni of Valley. The jobs are not difficult – no experience is necessary.
