2022-2023 School Year -- Home of the Raptors
Hello Valor Parents and Families! April 14, 2023
Happy April and we hope all is well! The return from spring break has not yet brought the warmer weather, but hopefully it'll be here soon. Here's another Newsletter edition so we can share about the events and happenings here at Valor.
As always, if you have questions or if we could help you with anything, please connect with us.
Important Dates for March and April
Spring Conferences - Thank You! And Quarter 4 Begins
Today marks the end of the Quarter 3. Following the Monday teacher work day, on Tuesday, April 17, we begin the Quarter 4, which is our final one of the school year.
The Next Family Movie Night - May 19
We had a nice turnout of students and families for our Movie Night in March. Coming up on May 19, we will host our second Movie Night. This time we'll be showing Coco with the audio in Spanish and subtitles in English. Family Movie Night is open to students, parents, siblings (if accompanied by a Valor parent), and our Valor staff.
Valor Music Concert and the Woodburn District Music Festival
Thank you to everyone who was able to attend our Valor Winter Concert and the WSD Music Festival recently. It was such a pleasure to listen to our students perform and see their growth. It was also incredible to see the progression from elementary to middle school and then the high school years.

WSD Parent – Student Handbook Link
The Woodburn School District has a Parent - Student Handbook that provides information on rules, policies, and expectations at all schools in the District. We provided these to everyone at parent conferences and also mailed them home to those who were unable to attend conferences. Additionally, here you can access a digital version of the handbook.
