American Heart Association's Go Red Campaign comes to Valley View
The American Heart Association’s Go Red for Women is about raising awareness and ending heart disease in women. Each year, 1 in 3 women die of heart disease and stroke. But this statistic can be changed since 80% of cardiac events can be prevented with education and lifestyle changes. National Wear Red Day is the first Friday in February, a day to raise our voice, know our cardiovascular risk, and take action to live longer, healthier lives. Get involved or help by donating money that supports educational programs as well as critical research to discover scientific knowledge about cardiovascular health.
Valley View Middle School’s goal is to raise $1000.00, click on the link and make a change.

Are you on a variance, or need one?
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).
