Valentine has many exception programs that rely on PTA support and we look forward to your involvement in the Valentine community! This year, our teachers undertake the District-wide endeavor into the Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) program. In support, our theme this year is “Inspire, Imagine, and Achieve” as students experience new learning opportunities throughout the year.
VALENTINE PTA IN THE SCHOOL
ART – Each class attends regularly scheduled art lessons with a specialist and art supplies funded by the Valentine PTA. Students have the opportunity to participate in the National PTA Reflections art program. In the spring, an Art Festival showcases student artwork for family viewing.
MUSIC – Each class attends regularly scheduled music lessons with a Music Teacher and instruments funded by the Valentine PTA. Choir and Band are available to students, led by a music specialist. Students perform in the annual Holiday Performance, Spring Music Performances, May Day Program, and an optional talent show at the Fall Fair.
TECHNOLOGY –Valentine PTA funds classroom technology equipment, which include iPads and Chromebooks.
LIBRARY – Classes regularly attend the library and students can visit during lunch and before school on scheduled open library days. Valentine PTA funds the librarian, classroom subscriptions, new books and magazines.
CLASSROOM SUPPORT – Valentine PTA funds a Teacher Wish List, monies collected through registration. These monies are divided among the classrooms for educational supplies. Other classroom supports funded by PTA include Curriculum Lab fees, 5th grade reading trophies, computer, and P.E. equipment. Room parents also support teachers with many activities throughout the year.
