welcome back

Hello Hawk Families,


It’s been a wonderful first 4 days of school! To all of our returning families and those new to our learning community, we welcome you with open arms and look forward to a joyful, curiosity filled year ahead with growth in our knowledge, skills, friendships, and self.

As parents, guardians, and staff members at Hidden Valley, we have been given the beautiful gift of caring for others, of creating a world for young people to know they are important, valued, and safe. We spend important time these first weeks of school to support building connections for and with our students and hope to do so with you as well, in our intake conferences, our upcoming Back to School Night presentations and with school events being planned for the future.


If you have any questions, always feel free to reach out to me at


In Education Together,



Hello Hidden Valley Families!

Welcome back! We are excited to meet our new families and reconnect with our veteran families! The PTO hopes that everyone had a great summer!
Over the summer, the PTO was hard at work preparing for any awesome year. One of our main projects was to revamp the PTO website. We enlisted the help of a local high school student, Zoe Tran, to program the new site. It was beneficial for everyone. The PTO ended up with a beautiful, user-friendly website and Zoe earned some great experience for her resume. We couldn’t be happier.
Check it out:
Use it to find answers to almost all of your questions! If it doesn’t answer your question, feel free to email us anytime at
It’s that time of year again - we need your help! Below you will find a list of volunteer roles that are open, and a complete list of all roles is available on the PTO website. If something looks like a fit for you, let us know! You can always email us, track us down on campus, or find us on Back to School Night on August 31. We want you!
