The school year is already moving quickly!  We will hold the first set of Parent/Teacher Conferences this month. Our goal and the district expectation is that teachers meet with 100% of parents.  You should receive an email from your child’s teacherwith information on signing up for conferences through Sign Up Genius.  If you have any questions regarding conferences, please contact your child’s teacher.                                                                        

We will hold our first quarter Student Recognition Assemblies on October 28th.  Parents are invited to attend.  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!
