Hello Valleycliffe Families:


This first week has been a great start to the new school year.  It was nice to meet many of you on the playground in the morning before the children went off to class.  I have been especially impressed with how many students have come up to me to have some really nice conversations; they have been very welcoming.  I feel so lucky to have joined this wonderful school family.


Today the students moved to their new classrooms.  Thank you to all the staff that worked very hard to engineer complex learning environments with a considerable amount of care.  Please remember that change can be difficult for some; please give your child time to settle in to their new class.  If you have any concerns around how to make your child more comfortable with the change, please reach out to their classroom teacher.



  • Please have your child stay home if they are not feeling well. Thank you for continuing to monitor for any cold/flu/covid symptoms each day.
  • Please send your child with a water bottle each day.  Next week looks warm and dry.
