Families

Valley School Families

The Valley School encourages parents/guardians to participate in the life of the school in a variety of ways. They may choose to assist on field trips, during special events, and occasionally in the classroom. We welcome their contributions in areas where they feel they have a particular interest or expertise. Most importantly, we need parents to work together with the staff to ensure the happiness and progress of their child.
 

Families at Valley - F@V (formerly Community Alliance of Parents - CAP)

Cultivating pride, communication, and connection within the Valley School community.
 
Families@Valley is a volunteer-run collective driving a spirit of involvement and inclusion to nurture Valley’s unique community. An organization for and of anyone helping raise a child at Valley, F@V is a critical communication link between Valley families, Admin, Faculty, and Staff in support of school events, activities, education, and more.
 
- Our mantra/shorthand for F@V is “nurturer of the community, organizer of support, keeper of traditions".
