VVISD Calendar Updates

Due to the two-day winter storm, the district will have to make up instructional time. State law requires school districts to measure instructional time in minutes. We must make up enough instructional minutes to account for the loss from the storm. One of the days missed will be covered by extra minutes in our school day and the other day will be covered on April 29. April 29 was originally scheduled as a bad weather day. This day will now operate as a regular school day. Students will attend classes, and staff will work as normal.

Red River Promise

In January, over 40 Valley View ISD students pledged to the Red River Promise Program. Students have until March 1st to complete their pledges, application, and FAFSA.

Principal's Book of the Month

In September, Mrs. Nelson began the Principal's Book of the Month Program. Each month local businesses or community members sponsor the book of the month. The sponsorship includes the purchasing of the selected book for each classroom and the library. Each book is labeled with the sponsor's information and the sponsorship is announced on our website and our social media platforms. If you would like to sponsor the Principal's Book of the Month please contact Mrs. Nelson at 940-726-3659.

We would like to say Thank You to First United Bank for being the February sponsor for the Principal of the Month Program. The February book is Chrysanthemum.

Fourth Grade Leadership Leauge

Valley View Elementary School has started a Fourth Grade Leadership League. The Leadership League is a leadership team (similar to the student council) with the purpose of promoting and developing existing leadership qualities in our fourth-grade students. Students were nominated for the Leadership League by the elementary staff, then the elementary administration reviewed and selected the participants. Over the next few months, the Leadership League will participate in on-campus activities and service projects. Congratulations to the following fourth-grade students who were selected:

Victoria Ahmed, Haide Aguilera, Damian Arvizu, Jaden Carroll, Brecken Darby, Haley Davis, Marle Davis, Delaney Ford, Bryan Luna, Kayle Maldonado, Tristan Singleton, and Addie Truhe.
