BOKS Program at Valleydale

Valleydale is glad to welcome back the BOKS program, Build Our Kids Success. BOKS is a before school health and fitness program designed for 2nd-5th graders with the purpose of waking up their brains so they are ready for their school day.  Studies show that kids who exercise see significant boosts in intelligence-test scores and core subjects at school.

Viking Ticket Reward Fridays

How can students participate in the monthly PBIS Ticket Reward Friday? It’s simple, just earn Viking Tickets for showing respect, solving problems and for making smart choices! No matter where students are on campus we are recognizing positive behavior. Every month students can exchange tickets to participate in special activities such as board games, Play-Doh, sports, Legos, computer activities, arts and crafts, and many more. Check out these pictures from our first event!

TK Students Learn About Shapes

From an early age, kids notice different shapes even if they don't yet know that the shapes have names. It takes longer for young children to learn the specific properties of each shape, such as the number of sides or how the shape looks. Valleydale TK and ETK students get lots of practice with shapes to help them solidify their understanding. That knowledge of shapes gives our Vikings an advantage in many areas of learning!

Spotlight on Valleydale

Establishing a College Going Culture

We are working hard towards getting all our students to think about going to college early! Our first step was to hang college and university flags in our cafeteria to get the conversations going. We believe that every student at Valleydale is college bound!

College Headed and Mighty Proud! CHAMP Program Comes to Valleydale

Valleydale Elementary has partnered with Azusa Pacific University through the CHAMP program; College Headed and Mighty Proud! This program introduces our fifth grade students to the idea of being college bound. Students experience activities designed to help them experience college life first-hand. Azusa Pacific University student mentors use the CHAMP curriculum to cover such topic as college admission, financial aid, and career exploration. This will be a rewarding experience for our students and will set the stage for future college success. Valleydale Vikings are College Headed and Mighty Proud!
