Dear Spring Valley Families,

 

Thank you to everyone who turned out for the Board meeting on Tuesday, especially our 5th graders and our teacher Mrs. Mead- fantastic job! We have three big reminders for this weekend!

 

Bingo Night

Tonight is Bingo Night at Spring Valley!! Please see the attached flyer and come out to support.  Our fifth graders will be doing a fund raiser for concessions, so pizza and other food will be available.  Thank you to the Forman family for organizing this event all these many years! If you are here, please keep the following in mind for everyone’s safety. 

 

  • Parking is limited.  Please remember not to park in the red zone/drop off area.  It is the “fire lane” and must be kept open for emergency vehicles if needed.
  • This is a family event and all students must be accompanied by an adult. No childcare will be provided so please do not drop off students. 
  • There will be no supervision outdoors and it will be dark.  Please monitor your children to avoid accidents.

The first day of the project will be this Sunday, Feb 11.  9am-5pm.  Spring Valley Garden. Come for all or some of the time!  We really need a great turn out to make the work go by quickly.

Dear Spring Valley Families,

 

Thank you so very much to our PTA parents Jessica Hudson and Karen Cheng for organizing our last two parent seminars.  Together they put together a great team of panelists and organized the fantastic food and wonderful childcare.  Their efforts allowed us to provide a much needed resource to our families!  

 

Tonight the spotlight is on Spring Valley at the MESD Board Meeting at Millbrae City Hall.  This particular board meeting is an important one since we will be discussing funding opportunities for our district.  Please stop by if you can to support.  Our fifth graders will be presenting.
