Principal's February Newsletter
Dear Hidden Valley Community,
It’s hard to believe we are half way through winter and heading towards spring. February is a short month, but it will be filled with plenty of learning, and fun activities. Please look for information throughout the month from your child’s teacher, in the PFC Monday Memos, and on the Hidden Valley website at http://hves-mdusd-ca.schoolloop.com/.
We still have room for parents and/or guardians to join our Loving Solutions parent education class. Childcare is available. You can pick up a flyer and registration form in the office, or just come to the library on Wednesday, February 8th to enroll in the class.
Please join me in welcoming two new staff members to Hidden Valley. Jessica Hersh will be providing intervention support for our Kindergarten classes. Armael Malinis will join us as a Social Work intern. Both Jessica and Armael bring valuable experience and lots of positive energy to Hidden Valley. We are very fortunate to have them with us.
During the week of February 14-17 we will be participating in Random Acts of Kindness Week. Activities are planned for students and staff that will focus on kindness. Be sure to ask your child about the activities they do with their teacher and classmates. I encourage you to take the time to talk with your child about kindness, making sure that s/he understands that kindness means being helpful and generous, and that it comes from the heart.
Throughout the month of February, our morning announcements will include quotes from famous African Americans to celebrate African American History month. Please follow us on Twitter @hvehawks to learn more about the individuals who are being celebrated, along with the many other exciting things that are happening at Hidden Valley.
Thank you for entrusting us with your child or children. It is our pleasure and privilege to teach and spend time with them each day. We appreciate all you do to support your child’s success at Hidden Valley.
Rich Gorton, Principal
