GREEN VALLEY 2018 SPELLING BEE:

Green Valley is excited to announce its first spelling bee! This bee is a qualifier for the East Bay Times Spelling Bee, as well as the Scripps National Spelling Bee.  All students in grades 1-5 are able to participate in their class bee, which will take place by the end of January.  The top student from each class will then be invited to participate in the school-wide bee, which is set for February 15th at 3:30 pm. If your child is interested they should study their grade level list (see links below). However, please keep in mind that the lists will advance to the next grade level until there is 1 top student from each class. The top winner will advance to the East Bay Times/National Spelling Bee and will need to be familiar with words from all lists through grade 8. For questions and additional information, please email Jyoti Gandhi.

WHY YOU SHOULD ONLY PICK UP/DROP OFF IN BACK LOT:

Ever since the beginning of the school year, we have reminded parents to follow parking, drop off, and pick up rules. These rules include how cars should only use the back lot for drop-off and pick-up, because the front lot is exclusively for school buses at the start and end of each school day. Unfortunately, despite the reminders, the front lot is still being used by some parents and caregivers, and it has now impacted some of our students. Children on the GV-9 bus were delayed more than 90 minutes recently, after a car hit their bus while it was picking up students in the front lot. The students had to remain on board the bus for California Highway Patrol, per protocol. Those 90 minutes were extremely stressful - not only for the children (some of whom were visibly upset), but also the parents waiting for them to come home. 

This was an accident that should never have happened. So, if not for any other reason, please help keep our children safe by adhering to our parking, drop off and pick up rules. Only park in the back lot. Always use the crosswalk when walking your children to and from the back lot. And please wait for your children in the courtyard (versus school hallways). Thank you for your cooperation!

 

GREEN VALLEY RUN CLUB RESUMES MARCH 2ND:

Run Club will meet every Friday at 8-8:30 am on the school blacktop, starting March 2nd. The Run Club is a PTA sponsored club for all Green Valley students, parents, and staff that want to participate, and is designed to provide a positive and healthy opportunity to develop a routine of physical exercise while having fun! Run, skip, walk, leap, or hop as many laps as you can! To register your student, please complete the permission slip during Green Valley registration or fill out the form available in the front office. We are hoping to have at least two parents join us each Friday. You do not have to be a runner to help, but you just might become one! For questions please email Coach Matt.

 

LUNCH WITH YOUR CHILD: 

We are always in need of supervisory help during lunch recess and this school year is no different. Grades 1-3 have lunch/recess from 11:45am-12:30pm and Grades 4-5 have lunch/recess from 12:35pm-1:20pm. If you are able to help on any given day, please sign up by clicking here. Be aware that all Green Valley Elementary volunteers need to register through the San Ramon Valley Unified School District's Volunteer Management System before they can help at school.
