GREEN VALLEY'S "SCHOOL WIDE READ ALOUD" PROGRAM:
Every month Green Valley picks a book for its School Wide Read Aloud program (SWRA) - a unique non-curriculum initiative that was first introduced to Green Valley students, across all grades, about 10 years ago. Each chosen book touches upon an important theme, to help meet and address the social and emotional needs of students. As with any school initiative that falls outside of public funding, we rely on the financial support of the Green Valley community. Our goal is to raise $3,000 for SWRA this year.
DANVILLE PD NOW TICKETING IN FRONT LOT:

Please remember that the correct drop off for children is from the McCauley Road exit. Help keep the children safe (and avoid a ticket), by only dropping off and picking up in the back lot.
