Life at Valley

Medieval Revelry

Medieval Revelry Third Grade went back in time to 1276 visiting the village of Camlann in Carnation. They saw typical village buildings and learned about the daily life of a medieval villager. They saw the Forge and learned how a blacksmith heated and shaped iron to make pots, pans, and arrow heads. They ate a ploughmans lunch on a 'trencher' (a piece of bread used as a plate) while Roger, the tour guide, played the lute to them. They also got to meet Murial the sheep, who provides the wool for the village spinner and weavers.
Growing into our Potential

Growing into our Potential Maintaining the intimate setting and the close-knit community that are the hallmarks of Valley, 2015 brings a campus expansion that bolsters innovation in teaching and enrichment activities for the entire school. The campus refurbishing project will establish newer, larger classrooms; create a library learning center to enrich the student experience; improve effectiveness with a fully-functional administrative hub; and provide a cohesive master plan for Valley’s future.
Dissection Investigation

Dissection Investigation Students dissected pig hearts in 2nd grade this week! Children used their senses to explore the hearts while they learned what it does for a body. Currently 2nd graders at Valley School are studying the human body. Three amazing parent volunteers brought in the pig hearts to dissect in small groups with the children in this exciting hands on experience.
