Weekly Update – October 31, 2019

Dear Families,

We hope you have a great Halloween. Please review our website for staying safe on Halloween https://sd48valleycliffe.org/.

It is our District Implementation Day tomorrow so there is no school for students. We will see everyone on Monday!


Hotdog day November 12th
Hotdog orders are now placed on the hot lunch website. The order cut of this Friday. Make sure you place your orders so we don’t have sad kids on hotdog day. If you’re not already registered, here’s how to get started…Go to Valleycliffe Hot Lunches: https://valleycliffepac.hotlunches.net
Click on “Click Here to Register” (last year’s accounts have been deleted so you will need to register fresh for this year).  Enter Access Code VCHL

Please park in appropriate spaces. We need room for our bikes and the middle of the lot gets too congested. We appreciate your support on this.

Can you help us out?

Katrina Doherty is looking for Altoid Tins for a project, please drop at her class if you have any.

PAC Carnival is in need of candy for next spring. You can bring your candy overflow and extras to the office and we make sure it gets put to good use!

Dear Families,

On Tuesday, October 22nd we had visitors from the board office come check out all of the great learning we are doing around our school goals of critical thinking and connection. It was a great chance for us to look at all of the wonderful activities we are engaging in. Please come check out our hall displays to see the visible learning at VCE.
