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!
Let's Walk n' Roll!
We are excited for our Walk and Roll event on May 20! To bring even more awareness to safe routes to school, we are encouraging students and parents of Happy Valley Elementary and Happy Valley Middle School to ditch the car, truck, and SUV, and instead opt to walk or bike to class. The event includes an opportunity to pick up some fun giveaway items and there will be complimentary coffee, water, and pastries, all courtesy of Happy Valley Parks and Recreation and our other partners. Of course, Happy Valley Police deputies will also be on hand to greet students as they enter the school buildings and will be providing some fun items at the event as well.
The PTO, in close partnership with the City of Happy Valley, is pleased to unveil 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 hope to generate valuable conversations amongst community members 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, the City's Traffic and Public Safety Committee, and the Happy Valley Police Department for listening to our concerns and partnering with us on solutions. Please check our the City's and PTO's school safety campaign pages to learn more, and don't miss the safety video put together by our very own HV Middle School!

Happening Inside HVE
Kudos to HVE Students
A Day In the Life
If you are new to HVE kindergarten or first grade, we know that your experience has been limited by the pandemic. We've heard many parents and caregivers asking for more information about day-to-day classroom activities of our youngest students. In response, the PTO partnered with HVE's kindy and first grade teams to bring you short videos about your child's kindergarten and first grade day. Enjoy these peeks into the classroom.
