Welcome to Valley View from your PTSA
The VVMS Parent Teacher Student Association (PTSA) welcomes you to our school. Through your support, both financially and with your time, we raise funds, sponsor student events, provide educational items for students and equipment for staff, and supply grants to the school. The PTSA works with parents, teachers, students and administrators to continue the school’s tradition of excellence.
PTSA meetings are held the 2nd Wednesday of every other month, currently virtually through Zoom. We welcome everyone to join--your ideas, talents, and energy help us in a vital way. Please note meeting times and location are subject to change.
Together we can make a difference in the lives of our students and staff at Valley View. The three years of middle school go quickly – don’t wait to jump in and help! If you have any question or concerns, please contact a PTSA board member.

#3 I have to be a board member or chair a committee to join the PTSA.
You do not have to serve on the PTSA Board or chair a committee to join the PTSA. Your wonderful support will suffice!

There will be opportunities to get involved, but there is no pressure to volunteer.

Not only does membership put you in direct communication with other parents and teachers, it shows your child that you are interested and invested in their educational experience.
