Principal’s Message: 

 

We closed out the week in shape! Thanks to the Fabulous Fun Run, we were able to get exercise and raise money at the same time! Our students weren't the only ones that enjoyed themselves because our parents joined in on all the fun! A huge thank you goes out to Nicole and Liz and their amazing team of parents who not only organized the event but made the "Fun Run 2022" come to life. Parents were dressed in costumes, working at water stations, and more. We even had a cool playlist that kept the students in Fun Run mode while earning bracelets for each lap. I earned three for my three laps and I enjoyed the conversations that were sparked when students saw them. I'm pretty sure you didn't have to ask your child how many laps they ran because that was probably all they talked about when they got home. We had a great time! Now it's time to get ready for the next event and I believe you received a flyer for it yesterday. 

 

As we approach October, it's time to get ready for conferences, Harvest Carnival, and on Monday, it's National Custodian’s Day! Douglas and Ervin, you're the best so we salute you! Thank you for keeping our school immaculate! Let's make it special for them with a nice note or card to show our appreciation! 

 

We are also in the process of revisiting our SPSA goals and what has been accomplished this year. Did we meet our goals and how do we know? We also have to ask ourselves, do we need to change our goals? How do we know? Please complete the survey to give feedback on how we are doing. The link for the survey can be found here. Thank you.  

 

Lastly, make sure to put the Pastries with Principal Perkins on your calendar. We will meet Friday, October 14, at 8:30 am, instead of this Friday. Please see the invite and zoom link below.

Mignon Perkins is inviting you to a scheduled Zoom meeting.

CRAYON INITIATIVE

 

3rd grader Sean McCallum recently kicked off our school crayon recycling project for the new school year! The project was initiated, and led, last year by Sean at Valle Verde. Over the summer he made our delivery to The Crayon Initiative and wanted to let our Viking Families know that together we collected 85 pounds of crayons! Way to go! For our new families, the old and broken crayons we recycle are melted down and made into new boxes of crayons that are distributed to pediatric hospitals across the United States. This ensures they will not end up in our landfills. The waxy crayon wrappers are also shredded and used in fireplace log production. Each classroom at Valle Verde has a crayon collection box, and a yellow collection bin is also located in the front office. Each classroom can dump their crayons into the bin in the main office when their box gets full. Keep up the great work Vikings! Let’s see if we can collect even more crayons this year! 

 

INDEPENDENT STUDY CONTRACTS

 

Independent Study Contracts are good for a minimum of 3 and a maximum of 14 days. You are also not allowed more than 14 days for the entire school year. If you would like to request an independent study contract for your child, email Tracy mirandat@mdusd.org at least TWO weeks before your departure date. She will prepare the contracts for the teachers. Contracts requested with less than two weeks notice, may be denied. 

 

VOLUNTEERING ON CAMPUS

 

If you plan on volunteering on campus this year, you must be cleared by the district office prior to signing up for any activity. Volunteering Instructions can be found on the VVE website, and the district website. You must have fingerprints and an up to date TB test to be cleared by the district office. There are no exceptions to this rule. If you do not have access to a printer, Fingerprint Clearance packets are in the office. This process can take up to  2-3 weeks so plan accordingly. 

 

DRIVING ON A FIELD TRIP:

 

If you are volunteering to drive on a field trip, all of the above has to be completed first. We will then need you to complete the “Chaperone Agreement/Transportation of Students in Privately Owned Vehicles” form which is available in the office. This form requests your name, driver’s license number, address, phone number, make and model of vehicle, auto license number AND a copy of your Declarations page of your insurance. (This is not the same as your insurance card. The Declarations page lists the coverages you have on your vehicle.) We MUST have a copy of these forms on file in order for you to drive. To save time, please make sure your coverage has these minimums: 

  • Bodily Injury Liability: Each individual-$100,000, Total Each Accident-$300,00

  • Property Damage Liability: Total Each Accident-$25,000

  • Medical Payments Each Individual-$5,000

  • Uninsured Motorist Coverage: Each Individual-$30,000, Total Each Accident-$60,000

OR

  • Combined Single Limit: $300,000; Medical Payments Each Individual-$5,000

  • Uninsured Motorist Coverage: Each Individual-$30,000; Total Each Accident-$60,000.

Medical Payments are often not on current policies but you can add it to your policy for a few extra dollars. This must be on your policy in order to be a volunteer driver. Thank you, in advance, for your understanding and patience.
