Results were announced for the “We’re Silly Over Reading” Coin Challenge that began Book Fair Week.  Each class brought in change for the privilege of silly-stringing Mrs. Metzger and their teachers.  8th Grade students brought in the most money so Mrs. Michelle Basler and Mrs. Jan Weiler, along with Mrs. Metzger will be silly-stringed in front of the entire school next week.

We encourage all students to keep reading over the summer to help prevent the “Summer Slide”.  All Valle students have been registered and are ready to go!
