Letter from Mrs. Davis about Upper Grade Award Assemblies

Dear Valley View Vikings,

Happy New Year and welcome back to school. This year, all of Westside Schools who have implemented standards based grading, are also implementing new academic award categories that best align with the new grading system. The new standards based grading award categories are as follows:

Academic Honors: This award is issued to students who demonstrate mastery of the standards by earning a “3” or “4” in ALL academic content areas.

High Honors: This award is issued to students who demonstrate mastery of standards by earning a “3” or “4” in all academic content areas AND demonstrate exemplary skills, by earning a “3” or “4” in College and Career Readiness.

Westside Scholar: Westside Union School District grants this recognition to students who meet or exceed standards in English Language Arts, or Mathematics. Determination is bases on the annual California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress (state assessment).

Students receiving any of the awards will be recognized at 4th-6th awards assemblies scheduled on January 30, 31 and February 1, 2019.  Teachers will notify parents, if your child is receiving an award at an assembly and a phone invitation sent by school administration.

Wednesday, January 30, 2019          8:00 am-8:45 am    5th grade Honors Assembly

Thursday, January 31, 2019              8:00 am-8:45 am    6th grade Honors AND Mrs. Scanlon’s 4th grade class

Friday, February 1, 2019                    8:00 am-8:45 am    4th grade Principal and Honor Roll (Burrows and Certonio)

One additional category is the Content Achievement Award: Fourth through sixth grade students earn this award when demonstrating mastery of standards, by earning a “3” or “4”, in any one or more content areas including College and Career Readiness. Students will receive this award in their classroom by their teacher this year.

Thank you for your support, and have a great second semester, Vikings!

Rebecca Davis, Principal

Welcome to Valley View Elementary!

Dear Parents, Students and Families,

Welcome back to another school year at “the best elementary school” in the Antelope Valley. In January, we celebrate Valley View’s 60th birthday as a school dedicated to learning. We are a school community committed to students in order to inspire learning. We spark curiosity and inspire our students to develop skills in critical thinking, communication, collaboration, and creativity. Like Vikings, we passionately take care of our family, doing whatever it takes to create a learning environment conducive for student learning. We are relentless in engaging students, and fearless in trying new strategies to reach our students in their learning journey. We are loyal to our all in our school community, which includes ALL… staff, students and families. We persevere in serving our community, and we model persistence in knowing that learning is a process and that mistakes are okay. We learn, make mistakes and keep on trying. We are warriors in education!

Excited about the year! Rebecca Davis, Principal
