VOLUNTEERS NEEDED FOR WALK THROUGH REGISTRATION We are in need of people to help with our Registration. This is a good way to get involved with the school, and meet other parents. You will also be able to get your childs’ class assignment early. (9:50 a.m on the 17th) Looking forward to a fun year!
REGISTRATION PACKET PICK UP In order to simplify Registration Day, you may pick up your registration paperwork early. Drive-through packet pick up will be on August 15th, from 7-10am and from 5:30-6:30pm. Drive through the kindergarten parking lot and have your family registration packet handed to you. This will afford you the opportunity to review all your paperwork and fill out your forms prior to getting in line on Wednesday. Please review the emergency contact card carefully to make sure the information is correct. Make corrections in red and sign the back of the sheet.
If you are unable to make the drive through on Monday, stop by the office and we will have your packet waiting for you. If you are not available to pick up your packet, you may contact the office to pick up & return your packet at a later date. Please note that registration packets contain confidential information and may only be picked up and returned by a student’s parent or legal guardian. Teacher assignments will be provided once the registration materials have been completed and returned either during or after registration.
REGISTRATION DAY For all new and returning families to obtain teacher assignments and return or complete necessary school forms. Registration Day will be on Wednesday, August 17th from 10am-noon and 5pm-6:30pm. ALL families may come to Valle Verde with your registration packet. Please make sure you have the signed emergency card(s). A couple of new items in your packet this year include your Homelink access information and an all-in-one Use Agreement Form. The Homelink gives you access to your child’s attendance, grades, etc. The All-in-One form needs to be signed and returned to the office at registration. Come through the office. There will be two lines by last name, A-L and M-Z. Trade your emergency card for your student(s) class assignment. From there, exit down the office hallway into the Staff lounge and pick up additional school information. As you exit into the quad, our PTA will have several booths set up. You will be able to purchase yearbooks and spirit wear, talk to our cafeteria manager, make donations, explore volunteer opportunities, learn about our onsite daycare and more.
ONLINE OPTION: Our online PTA registration site is back. Make it easy on yourself and go online to buy your spirit wear & yearbooks, sign up for the PTA and make your Boosters donation. These order forms are also included in your registration packets and can be turned in during walk thru registration. If you donate to boosters online, be sure to stop by the check-out table to get your VVE car magnet.
