The Valley School

Life at Valley


by Lora Kolmer,  Director of Admissions and Community Relations

Quiet, shy, introverted: these are not words you would associate with Valley alumna Sally Roberts. In the middle of the summer, Sally stopped by Valley to visit her former school and see all the changes that had taken place in the ten years since she had graduated.


After days and (for some) weeks of wearing pajamas inside out and backwards and sleeping with spoons under pillows, the snow finally arrived in Seattle. And there could not have been a more magical setting on the Valley campus for the All-School Sing performance that took place on a snow filled Friday morning in the Big Room!
