Welcome to Valley View Middle School, we are looking forward to a fabulous school year.
Annual Food Drive Has Begun
The annual Valley View Food Drive started on Monday, November 25th and will run through December 17th. Please send in healthy boxed and canned foods. Food will be collected in student's first period classes. We will also be asking for donations at local grocery stores as well. Thank you for contributing to this very important community need.
Early dismissal scheduled at 10:30 a.m. for Friday, December 20th. Winter vacation starts on Monday, December 23rd. Students will return to school on Monday, January 6th.
Due to extremely full bus loads, no bus passes will be given on Fridays, the only exception is if your child is riding their own bus and getting off at a different stop.
Do You have a GPA of 3.4 or higher?
If you currently have a GPA of 3.4 or higher and all "A"'s in citizenship and plan on maintaining that for the school year, you may be eligible to join the National Junior Honor Society. In order to join you must also complete 4 hours of approved community service hours. Community Service hours are due Tuesday, April 1, 2014. Students will officially be notified by letter in early February.
Community service forms are to be turned in all together when a minimum of 4 hours is completed to Jackie Dalrymple. 8th graders who were initiated last year and have maintained their 3.4 GPA are still members in good standing. They must continue to maintain their GPA and are required to complete four more hours of community service this year (due on or before Tuesday, April 1, 2014). Those students initiated last year not involved in the ceremony a second time. We support our students in realizing the rewards of scholarship and service.
Opportunity To Earn Volunteer Hours
The annual Totem Falls PTO Santa Breakfast will be taking place soon and chair-person Dana Johnson would like to offer our National Honor Society students some volunteer hours. The event is taking place on Saturday, December 14th from 8am - 12pm and they are looking for servers, clean-up crew, Santa's helpers, and check-in helpers. Students who would like to help can sign-up at http://vols.pt/kpNB1p or by emailing Mrs. Johnson at email@example.com.
