A Message From the Principal
The cold weather and snow has definitely settled in. Please remember to send your children to school dressed appropriately. We do go outside throughout the winter months when the temperature allows. If your family is in need of winter clothing (boots, snow pants, and coats) please let me or your child’s classroom teacher know. We have a supply of clothing donated from our PTO and teachers for children to borrow or keep.
Please consider joining our active PTO by attending their next meeting on Wednesday, December 11th in the Gorham School Library. The PTO meets every month, however they rotate between the Valley and Gorham buildings for the meetings.
December is a busy month, please make sure to keep these dates in mind:
• December 6th – K-2nd Grade Report Cards go home in backpacks
• December 9th – Board Meeting 6:30 PM High School Library
• December 11th – PTO Meeting in Gorham School Library 6PM
• December 23rd – January 3rd Winter Recess. (Return to school on Monday, January 6th)
Each grade level have different themed ELA topic for the month of December: Kindergarten classes are talking about their five senses, First Grade are completing a Teddy Bear mini unit and continuing their family unit by talking about and sharing family traditions, Second Grade are learning about winter holiday traditions around the world.
During the two week holiday recess I hope each of you make special family memories and please read to and with your child.
As always, if you have any questions or concerns I can help you with, please call the Valley Office at (585) 554-3115
