A Message from Dr. Johnsen, Valley Principal
Welcome to Valley Elementary – a No Excuses University school!
At Valley we are very proud of our “scholars” – our 700 students who work hard every day to meet their academic goals and take their first steps towards college. Our classrooms are places where kids use scholarly language and scholarly behavior to think about important ideas and build their academic skills, while taking care of each other and having fun. Valley Tigers know that “No Excuses” is shorthand for “There are No Excuses for Poor Effort.” We give 100% effort every day in our learning and in our character development. We ask questions, we participate fully, and we work hard to meet our goals. Every Valley Tiger. Every day. No Excuses!
Our teaching staff is highly skilled and dedicated to meeting the academic and social needs of each student. And our support staff works hard to ensure that our learning facilities are in top shape for each day of learning. If you’ve been at Valley for a while, you know all of this. If you’re new to us, welcome – you’ll soon find that our school is a gem in PUSD and your kids will love it here!
Parents are key partners for the success of our students, and I hope that this website will help you find all the information you need to be an active participant in your child’s education. Here you will find information about our school’s dual language program, calendars, lunch menus and much more. Links to Compass Learning and other instructional supports are here as well. If you find any outdated information or see something missing, please let us know – we want to make sure that this site is as helpful to you as possible.
Let’s make 2014-15 the best school year ever! Go Tigers!!
Andy Johnsen, Ed.D.
