Dear Hidden Valley Families,


Is it really October already?! They say time flies when you’re having fun. Like, our Back-To-School BBQ that was fun, right?! A huge THANK YOU to Dolores Escorcio, Kristina Ruiz, and Erin Martin for managing and coordinating this event. To the volunteers behind the scenes and those who were on the frontline, THANK YOU! This community event was a success because of you and because of our amazing Hidden Valley Community who attended.


Thank you to Sakura Barrientos for coordinating our clean-up day and for being our Campus Beautification Chair. It is a tough (and sometimes dirty) job that you do with such pride! Principal Gorton surprised us with his smoothies. Such a special treat! Thank you to all who came out and helped us keep our campus beautiful.


Our Apex Fun Run has come to an end. Be on the lookout for final numbers coming soon. Congratulations to 5th grade for working hard and earning money for your camp fees! Thank you to our AMAZING community for supporting this! Nicole Peters, thanks for managing this new and exciting fundraiser! Your dedication is appreciated!


October houses a PFC community event we’re calling Carn-o-ween this year. It requires a lot of volunteers and has always been tons of fun. If you have time, sign up to help, come down for some fun Halloween activities, enter the costume contest, or begin training to win the pie eating contest! We look forward to seeing you in your costumes on Friday, October 28th from 5:30pm-8:30pm.


During the last week of the month, we are celebrating Red Ribbon Week. Let’s show our school spirit and dress as the theme of the day.


You can get more information on these events as well as others by attending our PFC meetings on the first Tuesday of every month in the Library at 7pm or by checking us out on our website: or on our Facebook page: Parent Faculty Club at Hidden Valley Elementary.
