Valley Home School Math teacher Cory Reid held a very informative meeting regarding the new approach to Mathematics at the sixth grade level. Common Core, as it is known, will be more hands-on and in-depth. Rather than rushing through each lesson in order to meet standards, teachers will be able to slow down a bit in an effort to ensure that each student is learning and understanding the concept. Tests will now be taken online and are reported to be very difficult. Although there are challenges ahead we have high hopes that Common Core will bring positive results. We are ...

A very touching part of the evening came as everyone gathered round the tree and joined together in caroling as Wyatt Wucherer threw the switch that brought our community tree to life. The little tree glistened with lights all aglow, it seemed almost magical…what a special evening! The night was frosty cold outside as the warmth of our school gym ...

While they were busy playing games and enjoying refreshments they were stunned to hear a loud crash, almost as if someone had landed on top of the building. Before anyone could dash outside to see what all of the clatter was about the door flew open and in came a jolly old ...

We certainly need to mention the super snack bar run by school staff. It’s amazing how many hats one must wear in a small school setting.

It seemed more like a party among friends rather than a weekend yard sale! Our Valley Home Community Park was alive with friends, neighbors and folks who quickly became friends! This past Saturday the park played host to a very well-attended yard sale. The event raised much needed funds to maintain the park throughout the year. The day started off with a visit from TV station CW31 from Sacramento. TV reporter ‘Charity’ did a superb job of bringing excitement to what is to become an annual event for the park.

Our Valley Home MAC committee will be meeting tonight, January 16 at the Valley Home school. The meeting will start at 6:30 p.m. in the school library. These meetings are a wonderful way to keep the line between the residents and the county representatives. There will be reports of what has happened since last meeting, what is scheduled to happen in the near future and also an opportunity to report a problem that may need to be forwarded to the county leaders.
