Here we are ….  halfway through the school year already!  To those of you who have joined us recently, we heartily welcome you.  To those who already know the routine, we take this opportunity to thank you for your dedication to your student’s education and for your involvement in and support of Valley Oaks.  A new semester is a great time to evaluate your student’s progress, to make adjustments to your courses of study, or simply to continue on the path that is taking you and your child where you want to go!  The staff at Valley Oaks is honored to be a part of your journey and want to help you in any way possible, so don’t hesitate to ask for assistance. 

Some of the events, activities, and educational opportunities coming your way during the second semester include the annual Science Fair, the recently reinstated Spelling Bee, History Camp, Farm Camp, Battle of the Books, Showcase of the Arts, lots more field trips, SBAC testing, physical fitness testing, two sessions of enrichment, Extravaganza, family picnic days, and drama performances!  Be sure to watch the website for updates, check for weekly emails, peruse the foyer for flyers, and ask your resource teacher about what’s coming up! 

We anticipate a productive and positive second semester and remind you that there are only 18 weeks more of school until summer vacation is here!  And yes, we, too, are having a hard time believing how quickly the year is flying!
