Dr. Reynolds' Updates

September 2020

Dear Valley View Families,

We have had a great start of the 2020-21 school year. It has had its challenges with creating new systems and procedures, learning new tools and strategies, worldwide tech issues, but we managed everything that came our way. I am proud of the way our staff, teachers, students, and families have demonstrated grace, patience, understanding, adaptability and a growth-mindset. Everything we want our students to learn and use in their lives.

Thank you for making Valley View one of the best schools in California!


Go Eagles!

How to Support Student Learning at Home


Parents are a child’s first teachers and the home is a child’s first classroom. As key resources for learning and growth, parents help to shape a child’s social, emotional and physical development so that he/she can thrive in school and beyond.


Supporting student success starts with a shared agreement among families, schools and the community to work together and it involves committed actions to make it happen.

10 Tips for Parents


As a parent, you can do your part at home to reinforce this important family-school partnership. To help prepare your children for school readiness to stay on track and expand their learning opportunities:


  • Set up a daily family routine, including healthy eating and sleeping habits
  • Provide a place and time at home for homework
  • Check on assignments, homework and projects
  • Talk each day with your child about his/her activities
  • Promote literacy by reading to your child and by reading yourself
  • Limit and monitor TV watching, gaming, social media and computer time
  • Express high expectations and standards for your child’s learning
  • Attend parent-teacher conferences, Open House and Back-To-School events
  • Participate in decisions that affect your child’s education
  • Tap into community resources with visits to a library, museum, zoo or theater and encourage participation in after-school clubs, sports and art activities

Engaged parents are a key factor in helping students and schools succeed. With families, schools and communities working together as partners, student achievement is enhanced and children are better prepared to do well in school.
