Hi West Valley Families!

I hope your child had a great first week of school last week and enjoyed the solar eclipse viewing at school today! We are still in need of Room Parents, Flag Makers and Project Cornerstone Readers for many of our classes. We also need a handful of parents to help out with our Hospitality Committee. The teachers are counting on us to fill these positions so please consider signing up today.


Volunteer to be a Lead Room Parent or Room Parent for your child's class. Room Parents organize classroom parties and coordinate teacher appreciation events. The Lead Room Parent is the liaison between the classroom teacher and parents, and coordinates the efforts of the other room parents. For more info or to sign up, click here:

Volunteer to be a Walkathon Flag Maker for your child's class. Our annual Walkathon on October 7 will be a fun and festive event for the whole school community. As one of our Walkathon traditions, students take turns carrying their classroom flag around the track. We are seeking parent volunteers to make a flag for their child’s classroom. Specific instructions will be provided. For more info or to sign up, click here:

Volunteer to be a Project Cornerstone Reader for your child's class. Each month, Project Cornerstone volunteers read selected books and lead classroom activities and discussions with a focus on respect, peaceful conflict resolution, caring and friendship. Training, materials, and instructions are provided to allow volunteers to lead sessions with confidence! For more info or to sign up, click here:

Volunteer to help out on our Hospitality Committee.  This committee  is in charge of refreshments for our three morning informational WVPTO meetings this year, in addition to helping coordinate several teacher appreciation snacks and meals during the school year.
