The school year is already moving quickly!  We will hold the first set of Parent/Teacher Conferences this month.  The district expectation is that teachers meet with 100% of parents.  We would prefer to meet with parents on site, however if you prefer to have a Zoom meeting, you can let the teacher know.  Please watch for an email from your child’s teacher the week of October 4th with information on signing up for conferences through Sign Up Genius.  If you have any questions regarding conferences, please contact your child’s teacher.                                                                        

As we continue to try and keep everyone safe at school, this quarter teachers will present each student with a Lifeskill Award in the classroom instead of a ceremony.  Our students are already using so many Lifeskills every day.  One of my favorite things about Spring Valley is how the kids and staff all work together.  SV is my happy place!
