Hello Hidden Valley Families!


Hooray! We hit our goal for fundraising with our annual Fun Run, led for THREE YEARS  by MIKE CASSIN & SANDRA MURTAGH, significantly supported in years past by JENNIFER HAMERSKI (who now serves an even more important role district-wide as the district NURSE, who spends one day on each of the campus every week). Please give a shout out to these people if you see them on campus- all live nearby and are always around. They are invaluable to our community!


Thank you to our Room Parents and other volunteers that planned all of the grade socials that were held last week, and to all of the parents that were able to attend. Look for another round of socials in the spring! These are a great way to meet other families. Consider this a friendly reminder to check in with your Room Parent (or teacher if you do not know who is room parent for your class(es)) to make sure that you are on the classroom contact list so that you don’t miss invitations to events like these!


Picture Day is this week! Yay! And Halloween is next week!! Please join us for the Halloween Parade on October 31 at 8:30am! It is one of the cutest days of the year!


Have a great week!

YES Parties with a Purpose

So you may be asking yourself, “what’s with these YES Parties with a Purpose events?” The YES Foundation is bringing back an old tradition that builds community, infuses joy, all while funding arts education at the RVSD.


The Parties with a Purpose events range from small to big, adult only, kids only, to family friendly. Parties are created and hosted by our RVSD families, solely funded by our RVSD families with ALL proceeds (every dollar spent on tickets!) donated to the YES Foundation enabling all of our children to benefit from the programs. If you’d like to host a cornhole match at a park, create a magical dinner party at your home, dress-up and rock out to a themed party at a venue or host a cookie making event or any other ideas that inspire you, please contact Susan Flandermeyer at and check out our website


Here are two Parties with a Purpose events happening this November!

We’re bringing back a legacy Party with a Purpose. Come out to Irish/British trivia night that celebrates the pub culture of these two countries with the theme, while the trivia portion covers all cultures!
