Hi West Valley Families!

Welcome (almost) back to virtual learning! I hope this email finds you safe and healthy as we continue to navigate these challenging times! As you know, this Wednesday class assignments will be posted. Once you know what class your child(ren) are in, it is very important that you please log into Konstella and do the following:

1. Reassign your child(ren) to their new class by clicking here: https://www.konstella.com/app/settings/children. Click “Join Classroom” to assign your child(ren) to their new classroom and “Add Child” if you have a new child starting at WV. This is very important as you will not receive classroom/grade specific news or emails from your room parents or WVPTO if your child is not linked to the appropriate classroom.

2. Review the Committees you are currently signed up for and make any necessary changes by clicking on that committee link. Having accurate committee member info will help the WVPTO and committee chairs know what positions still need to be filled for this school year. Please review/edit your current committees here: https://www.konstella.com/app/settings/roles

3. Volunteer to be a Lead Room Parent for your child's class. Lead Room Parents will organize virtual classroom events, coordinate teacher appreciation gifts and be the liaison between the classroom teacher and other parents.  Given our current distance learning we will start out the school year with just two lead room parents per class. We are also still looking for a School Wide Room Parent Lead to manage all the individual classroom parents. For more info or to sign up click here: https://www.konstella.com/app/school/52ed386b03642fe28f2b79f5/committees/5352deaee4b01f5e8e2345df

4. Volunteer to be a Virtual 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, caring and friendship. Training, materials, and instructions are provided to allow volunteers to lead sessions with confidence! We are still looking for a schoolwide lead to manage all the individual class volunteers and run the program at WV. For more info or to sign up click here: https://www.konstella.com/app/school/52ed386b03642fe28f2b79f5/committees/53e3082ce4b085daa146ae99

Do you know a new family starting at West Valley? If so, please share Konstella with them so they can receive news from the WVPTO and connect with the families in their child's class.

Questions? Contact  WVPTO Communications Director Marissa Levy at mlevyrealtor@gmail.com or simply reply to this email.

Be on the lookout for an email regarding WV Spirit Wear orders next week.

Finally, don't forget to attend the virtual Welcome Coffee & Presentation by Principal Bernstein this Thursday, August 16th from 8:00-8:30am.

Thank you for your help getting this new, virtual year off to a great start! Go Wildcats!
