Welcome June ~ the final month of the school year!
It is the time of year life speeds up, and timelines rush toward us whether we are ready or not. However, many important dates remain on your calendar. Please take note.
Thank you Coaches!
We have just finished our basketball season! We are proud of the commitment and dedication of our players. They played hard and represented Valley Creek well. Thank you to the coaches of our four teams, especially our parents, Mr. Hornberger and Mr. Bromley; we couldn't have run all teams without your unwavering support. Thank you for your time and dedicated commitment. You are appreciated.

June 6, Thermopylae
We are proud our Thermopylae race is returning to its pre-COVID glory, with seventeen schools participating this year.
Thermopylae is a 5.07 km, 20 obstacles, two mud pit course built to challenge middle school students. Our Thermopylae teams have trained throughout the year to prepare for this gruelling event. As the creator and founder, Mike Maher, is moving on from Valley Creek next year, this is an even more unique historical event. This event will begin in our backfield at 4:00 pm, Tuesday, June 6. If you would like to volunteer, please get in touch with Mr. Maher – at firstname.lastname@example.org.
