Welcome! HVE PTO is a non-profit organization dedicated to enhancing the educational and social experiences of the young children of the Happy Valley Elementary and strengthening the connections between educators and families. We are staffed entirely by volunteers who work in close partnerships with school staff, as well as the entire HVE community. From rebuilding the school playground, to providing funding for additional instructional assistants, to offering classroom stipends and grade enrichment opportunities, the HVE PTO has a long history of meeting our school's needs. We rely entirely on donations of funds, time, and resources and could not fulfill our mission without the support and engagement of parents, caregivers, and teachers. Thank you!
Thank you for making 2021-22 a fabulous year, HVE family, despite the challenges of the pandemic. We were able to achieve so much for our kids, our school, and our entire community. Library books, musical instruments, art supplies, gaga ball on the playground, new rock wall in the gym, virtual and in-person field trips, grade assemblies, and a variety of spirit and community-building events throughout the year were all things that the PTO funded last year ABOVE AND BEYOND the budgeted expenses. Just imagine no PTO, no parent volunteers, and not having $61,600 put back into our school. Ask your kids about their favorite things this year. We bet a PTO-sponsored event or activity is on the list! 💙💛
We look forward to seeing you in September! In the meantime, please enjoy the summer break, stay safe, and fill up those blue bags so we can start the year strong.
The PTO, in close partnership with the City of Happy Valley, created the Take30! School Safety Campaign. Take30! is designed to encourage drivers and pedestrians to take an active role in establishing safe habits and routines when using the roads. By partnering together, we are committed to generating valuable conversations that decrease accidents and ensure healthy and safe road behaviors. To learn more about how Take30! came to be, check out the April issue of HV News. The PTO sends the warmest THANKS to the City of Happy Valley and the Happy Valley Police Department for listening to our concerns and partnering with us on solutions. On May 20, we jointly hosted our first Walk and Roll to School event that we hope further raised awareness about safety. A crosswalk safety enforcement operation followed.
