Principal’s Message: 

This week's message is all about celebrating our students and giving "Shout Outs". I believe that it is imperative to celebrate our students for their excellence in academic areas and attendance. We typically honor students during our Character Trait Assemblies monthly, so recognition at the district level is quite an accomplishment worth sharing with our school community. Please join me in celebrating the following students for their excellence: Avery E., Mayowa A., Bryson M., and Ian P. received excellence awards this past week and we are so proud of them. There is greatness in each of our students and we have to not only cultivate that greatness but celebrate it often. 

I also want to thank our students for saving their Vikings all year to spend time with me! Students either attended, "Movie with the Principal" or "Pizza with Principal Perkins" or both. I will never take for granted that students want to enjoy a movie or pizza with the principal. That is incredible! Movie with the Principal was held this week and students were flexible with their schedules. Make sure to ask them about it... It's a long story, but a long story short. They were ready for the movie and we had to watch the movie the following day. "Toy Story 4" was a pretty good choice and with 5th-grade student support it was a success! Now I know for certain that a group of 5th graders that took the initiative to help me out during the movie are ready for bigger things, like middle school. I have to thank Carson, Paree, Addilyn, and Liliana for their help this week. It’s countdown time so I’m gonna make sure to let the 5th grade students know that I appreciate them. They are the best! 

Let me also thank our Kindergarten parents for their assistance with supervision during the Kindergarten lunch schedule. We will continue to discuss opportunities for parent volunteers so that our students have the best learning experience here at Valle Verde. I know we have volunteers supporting all areas at Valle Verde so whether you are facilitating learning stations or supporting events, you are making a difference and we are grateful for all that you do!  

Our final School Site Council meeting was on the calendar and I had to postpone it until Monday, May 22, 2023, at 3:00pm. The meeting will be held via Zoom. Please see the details below. Thank you.

Our Fifth grade promotion celebration has been changed to June 1 at 8:30am . Please mark your calendars.



Effective April 10, 2023, if a student is chronically absent, the parent/guardian must provide medical verification for future absences to be excused.  Once a student is identified as chronically absent they will be required to follow these procedures until the end of this school year.  Chronic absenteeism means that a student has missed 10 percent or more of school days(to date) due to absences for any reason—excused, unexcused absences, and suspensions.  Absences can cause students to have difficulty learning to read by their third-grade benchmark assessments, affect academic achievement in middle school, or affect student motivation to do the work required to graduate from high school.



We have had a lot of illness on campus and just want to remind parents that the following conditions need to be reported to the office: covid, lice, pink eye, strep throat, and hand, foot, and mouth disease. This is for the safety of all our students. If you are not sure about when it is safe to return for any condition, please call the office. Thank you for your cooperation. 



We have had a number of Chromebooks come through the office that are damaged or destroyed. Most of these have NOT had insurance on them. A new Chromebook costs $250, making the insurance more than affordable. Please click here for more information and please call our office with any questions.



Just a reminder that absences must be cleared through the office within 72 hours of the absence. You may email the teachers as well, but absences are not cleared by teachers. We have also had many students showing up tardy lately and not checking in at the office. Once the teacher has submitted attendance, they can’t go back and change it, so if your student does not have a tardy slip from Ms. Tracy or Ms. Debi, they will stay marked absent. You may clear an absence by calling the attendance hotline at 925-682-8000 ext 7505, emailing, or calling the office. 



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.
