Don’t cry because it’s over. Smile because it happened.

-Dr. Seuss

Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss!


Welcome to March, Hidden Valley Families! February hosted our STEM Fair and the annual Spell-A-Thon. Your support and participation raised $7,500! Fourth graders earned $1,025 for their camp fund! One class in each grade level earned a free recess because they had the highest number or words spelled correctly. They are: Mrs. Sibilla’s Kindergarten class, Mrs. Hults’s 1st grade class, Mrs. Young’s 2nd grade class, Mrs. Sullivan 3rd grade class, Mrs. Campos’s 4th grade class, and Mrs. Goodwin’s 5th grade class. Congratulations!! There was also one raffle winner in each grade level who won a Kindle. These participants earned $100 or more in donations. Congratulations to Rory C., Viviana M., Alexis W., Fiona E., Carlo M., and Anton G. Thank you to everyone who participated, donated, and volunteered to make this fundraiser a success!

Principal Gorton and Vice Principal Lanfranki Law are hosting a parent forum on Tuesday, March 7 from 6pm-6:30pm in the Multi-Use room. This is an opportunity to meet with them, ask questions, and discuss concerns. Immediately following this forum is a PFC social also being held in the Multi-Use room. We are looking for interested and dedicated people to help our PFC run smoothly and make decisions that will benefit our school. If this is appealing to you or know someone who would be interested, please, attend this social and/or contact a current Committee Chair or Executive Board member and check out our website for more information. Our monthly PFC meeting will start at 7pm. This month we vote on the salaries we commit to pay for every year. I hope to see you all this Tuesday, March 7th at 6pm.
