Welcome to Valley View Middle School, we are looking forward to a fabulous school year.
Below are important district links and information to help you prepare. We encourage families to print out and familiarize themselves with this important information:
Valley View Middle School invites all incoming 7th grade students and their parents to the Valley View Middle School 7th Grade Orientation at 7 p.m. on Monday, March 23rd, 2015 in the Valley View Middle School gym. Come for an evening to tour Valley View Middle School, meet staff and ask questions. If you are not able to attend click here for the evening's presentation.
7th Grade Summer Reading Project
The Valley View Language Arts Department requires a summer reading project for all incoming seventh graders. The following items will help you achieve your goal for a successful start to your 7th grade year!
If your student is brand new to Snohomish School District, or is returning to the district, a completed registration packet will need to be turned in to our office in order to enroll your student. All completed packets will also need the supporting documents listed below. If you need additional information about registration, please contact Mrs. Galusha, Registrar at 360-563-4239 or firstname.lastname@example.org
(Student immunizations must be up-to-date before the student may attend school.)
If you need to register your child for the remainder of the 2014-2015 school year please contact Mrs. Galusha at 360-563-4239.
We are currently accepting Choice Transfers (variances) and In-District Transfers for the 2015-16 school year. If your student is on an In-District or Choice Transfer (variance from another district) please complete a new form for the 2015-16 school year. All decisions are based on capacity. Please ensure your students continued attendance by completing an application, if you have not already done so. This is an annual requirement. In-District Transfer forms can be found on the website at sno.wednet.edu or at the district office. If you live outside of the Snohomish School District, please go to your home district and request a Choice Transfer. If you have questions, please contact Maxine Marshall, Enrollment & Skyward Services at 360-563-7240.
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.
If you currently have a GPA of 3.4 or higher and maintain it 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 Wednesday, April 1st, 2015. Students will officially be notified by letter in mid-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 4 more hours of community service this year (due on or before Wednesday, April 1st, 2015). 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.

College Success Foundation - College Bound Scholarship guides low-income 7th and 8th graders on the path to a college education by offering the promise of tuition when the student reaches college age if the student keeps up his or her grades and stays crime-free. The College Success Foundation, in partnership with the state of Washington, the Higher Education Coordinating Board (HECB), and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, actively works with students and families throughout the state to get them to sign up and provide college readiness support in selected school districts.
