Our Valley Home School students are looking forward to a fun filled week of activities. Starting off the week, Monday will offer them an exciting preview only of the gift items which will be available to purchase for family members at the much anticipated annual Valley Home PTC sponsored Christmas Store. The Christmas Store will feature a variety of gift items which are available for students to purchase for their family members. Not only are students able to purchase gift items for a nominal fee, but members of the Valley Home PTC will be on hand to wrap the selections for them, so that their purchases will be a mystery to family members until December 25th. This year the Store is located in the portable building next to the gym. The excitement of shopping for gift items is one of the biggest events for the students. What fun to be able to look and select special gift items for family members! The store will be open for the students Tuesday thru Thursday, from 8:30 a.m. until 2:00 p.m.

Valley Home PTC members would like to once again thank everyone for their continued support and are very grateful for your kind donations and help! The group has finished assembling the annual Holiday Food Baskets to be given to needy families and offer a big thank you to all for the canned food donations, your donations will help to make the Holiday a happy one for those in need!

Our students are gearing up for a fun filled last week of school prior to their two week vacation for Christmas and New Year’s break with their families! Class parties will be a prelude to the Holidays, which is always an exciting time for our students!

We understand that Mr. Tom’s ASP and Bonnie have worked diligently with the teachers and their students and we have received word that they have put together another wonderful Christmas Program this year. It will be held on Friday, December 17th at 7 p.m. in the Gym. You are invited to come and enjoy what our students have practiced to perform.

Even though our calendars are full of fun activities for the rest of the year, it is not too soon to grab on to a calendar for 2011 and plan to join our friends and neighbors for PTA’s “Start Your Day Off Right” Pancake Breakfast on Saturday, January 8, 2011. Delicious pancakes, bacon, sausage, eggs, juice, milk and coffee will be served. What a great way to start the New Year! What a great menu to start the New Year off right! Tickle your taste buds with this delicious breakfast priced at $3 per child and $6 for ages 12 and up. PTC says “Let your kitchen have a break and let us do all the work!”
