Welcome back families! We hope that you had a warm and restful break and we are so excited to see everyone's smiling faces again.
Morning Safety Reminder
School starts at 8:48 am. Doors open at 8:38 am for Open Entry which gives students a chance to visit with friends and staff, and get organized for the day. All staff are supervising inside from 8:38 – 8:48 am. For safety reasons, it is important that students do not arrive early unless they are with a care giver.
No students before 8:38 am.
Bus Zone Reminder
The road directly in front of the school is zoned for busses. It is unsafe to park or drop students in the Bus Zone. When a vehicle is stopped or parked there, the busses are unable to safely park.
No stopping or parking in the Bus Zone.
Free Effective Parenting Course Hosted by Hull Services
How to help your kids improve their behaviour?
To get your kids to listen when you ask them to do something?
What consequences are appropriate and how to use them effectively?
How to avoid melt-downs?
You are not alone. Parenting is hardwork and complex but there are tools and strategies that can help you and your child have a more positive relationship and greater success.
Hull Services continues to partner with CBE to provide FREE, parenting courses through the Community Parent Education Program (CPEP). Valley View School will be hosting an in person course starting at 6:00 pm on the evening of January 26th. The course runs once a week for the duration of 8 evenings. The benefit of in-person classes is that parents with children aged 5 - 12 can attend together. The kids get to learn important skills in a fun and active manner in the children's group portion of the program.
