Fundraising

The school plans to hold three main fundraisers this school year in hopes of generating $100,000 of additional revenue for the school, the majority of which we will use for staff salaries.

The annual Fall Fest (Halloween carnival) is a family-friendly event held outdoors with fun games, food, and an auction. Our goal is to raise $15,000.

The annual Gala is an adults-only event with dinner, dancing, and an auction in the spring at a location TBD. Our goal is to raise $40,000.

For our annual fund, we will acknowledge donations of $250 or more by adding the donor's name to a brick which we will place along the wall near the basketball courts. We will acknowledge donations of $100 to $249 by adding the donor's name to the large VPS sign located on the hillside near carpool. Our goal is to have 100% participation and raise $45,000. Since July, we have raised more than $30,000. Please visit our donations website to help support our fundraising efforts.

Annual Goals

Goal-setting is an important endeavor for any school. It helps to keep everyone focused and moving in the same direction with a common purpose. Valley Prep has two main goals this year:

  1. Continue to improve the curriculum
  2. Ensure financial stability

In the weeks to come, we will be exploring these two goals in greater detail. Throughout the year, please let us know how we're doing in meeting these goals.  

Experiential Learning/Overnight Field Trips

Fourth grade through eighth grade families: experiential learning (i.e. overnight field trips) is an important part of Valley Prep's overall program. We are excited that all of our trips are likely to happen this year. Please note that some important due dates are upcoming.We encourage fourth through eighth grade parents to review the information in our experiential learning program document.
