The Viking Voice

The Viking Voice

March 19~March 23, 2018

It takes every Viking to sail our ship.

Principal’s Message~The parent involvement at Valle Verde is exceptional!  Our school community has volunteer systems that set a high standard for what parent involvement should look like. 

This past Thursday, I attended,“The Wizard of Oz” Production and the show was amazing!  The program was a success because of the hard work and diligence of the students and the parent community at Valle Verde Elementary.  The annual productions are definitely a highlight for our students in the upper grades.  They want to participate in the Arts and they always love to showcase their talent.  It is always a pleasant surprise to see the students shine outside of the academic setting.  Our Valle Verde students have so much talent!

The performance supports our Goal #1, so I will repost the goal because it is definitely a part of the work around the goal, as it pertains to the parent community, our students and creativity. 

Goal #1: Staff, students, and parents will collectively build an inclusive environment that supports diversity, creativity, independence, and critical thinking for all stakeholders, while developing skills that will support college and career readiness.

The District LCAP Goal #3 is also aligned with parent involvement and I want to make sure that we are making connections to the LCAP Goal, as well.  

LCAP Goal #3: Parents, family, and community will be informed, engaged and empowered as partners with Mt. Diablo Unified to support student learning.

Thank you to the parent community for partnering with the teachers and staff to make a positive difference in our students’ lives.  Make sure to share your positive experiences on Great Schools website to spread the word!  As a school community we are moving in the right direction and we will continue to focus on addressing the academic, social, emotional needs of all students at Valle Verde Elementary.

BOY SCOUTS: Boy Scouts Troop 810 invites all interested 5th graders to come fishing with us on March 31. Heather Farms pond will be planting fish on March 30, and we were told a little secret on where the fish will be hiding, so this is the perfect opportunity to actually catch a fish.

When is the event? Saturday, March 31 from 11:00 am to 1:00 pm 

Where are we meeting? At Heather Farms pond, 301 N. San Carlos Drive, Walnut Creek.  We will be meeting at the building next to the pond.  Come look for a bunch of boys with fishing poles. 

What to bring? A fishing pole, tackle hooks, bait (little red fish eggs) - if you don't have any of these, don't worry, we will have extras, just let us know.

What will we be doing? Fishing, learning how to tie knots, cleaning and cooking the fish you catch - don't worry, we will have other food if no fish is caught!

Troop 810 Scouts enjoy weekly troop meetings, monthly camp outs that include canoeing, hiking and snow camping, a rigorous merit badge program, and numerous activities towards achieving the BSA's objectives of developing character, citizenship and personal fitness training.  Troop 810 was established in 1966 and has over 155 Eagle Scouts.  We meet most Tuesdays at Foothill Middle School at 7:30 pm.

For more information and to RSVP, please contact Dorene Soe at dalouie8@yahoo.com or 925-932-0733,  so that we can make sure we have enough equipment and just in case of weather, we can notify you if plans change. Please RSVP by March 24.
