What a beautiful summer we have experienced this year!  Sunshine and more sunshine to enjoy days of laughter, friendship and adventure.  Although it is hard to believe, the holidays are half over and many of us are thinking about returning to school in the fall.    The office will be open beginning August 29th at 9:00 am.   Registrations for the new school year may be done on-line through our website. Please feel free to contact us at the school after August 29th, if you have any questions or concerns.

Please remember that students will go back to their previous year’s classroom for the first few days of school.  New students will come to the office and then we will guide them through the routines of a new start.   This year’s Kindergarten students will begin their school journey during the second week of school.

We look forward to seeing all of you!

Take care,


We have had a garden that grows not just aphids….but lots and lots of vegetables and even sunflowers.

This summer, our garden will be watered by a family each week who have kindly volunteered.

Thank you families for keeping our garden growing. We can’t wait to see it in September!

(Please visit our garden page under programs to see how this all got started)

What a wonderful day for everyone at Happy Valley! Our staff decided to join on our students in play during recess ” flash mob” style. The students couldn’t believe their eyes! What were all these adults doing on the slides, monkey bars, swing sets, playing tetherball and skipping?”

There were smiles ear to ear for everyone as we spent time connecting and continuing to build relationships. The question from the students as they left the playground-“Are you guys coming out to play tomorrow?”.

Enjoy your summer playing with your children- we know we sure did!

What a perfect way to end the school year.

Take care and we will see you in September!



Macartney and Liam had the wonderful opportunity to record voiceovers for the exhibits at the Artstarts Gallery.  They were required to rehearse up to five scripts each and then spend time at a local studio working with professional recording artists.  Their work will be published on the Artstarts website within the next few weeks.  Stay tuned for their blog posting!IMG_20160509_110310
