OUR CORE BELIEFS
As we move forward one of our goals is to improve upon our positive school culture where teachers love to teach and children love to learn. In working towards this we have had collaborative discussions in which we developed our Core Beliefs. Our core beliefs serve as a code of ethics or guiding light for the way professionals in this district will deal with discipline problems. This is a living document that we will continue to have discussions around and will guide us in our daily decisions.

Dear Pleasant Valley Families,
Thank you for a wonderful first week of school! We are off to a terrific start, thanks to everyone working together to make that happen! It is fun seeing the excitement from all of the students coming back to school. We are well on our way to fulfilling our school mission to “provide academically rigorous curriculum by promoting and challenging the intellectual, creative, physical, and social development of middle school students.” One way to strive toward this is to remember our school motto of…
“Cooperation and teamwork…ALWAYS!”
I also wanted to provide you with a few reminders that will help provide our students with a safe and positive learning environment. The following information is in our Student/Parent Handbook, but I wanted to highlight some important items:
T reat others respectfully
W e expect success
O bligation to act responsibly
L ive safely
F riends support each other
We hope you will join us Tuesday, August 18 for Back to School Night. More information about the evening will be sent out separately.
I do look forward to working together to make each day “a great day to be at PV!”
TDAP BOOSTER-ATTENTION 6TH GRADE PARENTS
If you are a parent of a 6th grader, please make sure your child gets the Tdap Booster Shot before starting 7th grade in the fall of 2014. The Tdap vaccine is required for all 7th graders to enter school in the fall. The school office will need proof of immunization once the shot has been administered.
According to a new state law, all 7th grade students in California will be required to receive a Tdap booster shot before starting school in their 7th grade year. The Tdap booster is a combination of the Tetnus, Diptheria, and Pertussis (Whooping Cough) vaccines and will be important in helping to protect our students from illness. Please bring proof of immunization to the school office as soon as possible to avoid your child being excluded from school at the start of their 7th grade year.
Please direct any questions to the Gold Oak Union School District Nurse: Tammy VanWarmerdam at (530) 957-7553.
