Community Use of Schools
COMMUNITY USE IS CURRENTLY ON HOLD DUE TO COVID-19
Valley View Public School is proud of the many community partnerships we have established in order to support learning. Our long list of community partners includes, but is not limited to, the Sudbury and District Health Unit, the Laurentian Faculty of Education, the Greater Sudbury Police Service and many others.
Children learn best when the significant adults in their lives — parents, teachers, and other family and community members — work together to encourage and support them. The meaningful involvement of parents and support from the community are essential.
All the experiences children have, both in and out of school, help shape their sense that someone cares about them, their feelings of self-worth and competency, their understanding of the world around them, and their beliefs.
As teachers implement curricula based on real-world problems and information, community partners make valuable contributions by sharing first-hand information about work, hobbies, history, and other personal experiences.
Together, we are better!
Volunteer opportunities at Valley View P.S. are almost limitless. Whether it’s a one-time event, like supervising a class trip, or an ongoing commitment, like coaching a school basketball team, we have a role for just about everyone. If you have some time that you can donate to our school, your assistance is greatly appreciated by staff and students.
As per the Rainbow District School Board policy, all volunteers who work with children must have a recent criminal background check. Please don’t let this requirement deter you as in most cases we will reimburse this expense. Ensuring your children’s safety is always a priority.
Please contact the main office, the principal or your child’s teacher if you would like to volunteer.
Thanks for lending a hand.
