Principal's Message

Kathleen Dor-Reid

March 29, 2018


Dear Families,


Spring break is next week!  We will be out early tomorrow, Friday, March 30 at 12:15pm, so please arrange for early pick up.  Students attending the Nature Bridge Field Trip will arrive back here by 12:15pm. Some students will be here for computer club with our volunteer dads, prearranged.  There are no other programs after school tomorrow that I know of.  If you have questions about any Millbrae Park and Rec programs that take place on our campus, please contact them at 650-289-2365 or check their website.  We do not have their schedules (other than public online access) or know what students are attending their programs.


Character Trait Assembly: Today our kindergarten students did a presentation on our Character Trait for March, Cooperation.  They cooperated beautifully creating a performance that to encouraged all students how important cooperation is!  Thank you to our parents who came to watch them perform!    



We are in need of new officers and chairs for the 2018-2019 school year!  If you’re thinking about getting more involved, this is the time!   The open positions are as follows:


Open Officer positions:





Recording Secretary


Open Chair positions: 






Joining the PTA board is a great way to provide YOUR valuable input for educational and enrichment programs that directly benefit Spring Valley kids and parents.  You also get to learn about how the PTA works together with the Millbrae School District, Millbrae Education Foundation and various other community groups.  If you’re hesitant about being a chair lead, please recruit an interested friend – we welcome Co-Chairs for all of the open chair positions!


If you have any questions at all about the open positions, please contact Karen Cheng: kmycheng22@gmail.com

Rotary Student of the Year:

Every year the Millbrae Rotary Club holds a luncheon to honor one student from each Millbrae school as student of the year.  The elementary schools chose a fifth grade student who exemplifies the Rotary motto of Service Above Self.  This year the student of the year for Spring Valley is Ethan Lee.  Despite his many health challenges during his elementary school years, Ethan persevered with a positive attitude.  He has also volunteered and supported other struggling students while determining to do his best as a student himself.  We are proud of him. The luncheon will be held on Tuesday, April 11th.
