Principal's Message

Dear Families,

As our school year winds to a close, there are many wonderful activities planned including concerts, trips and moving up ceremonies. We hope that you will be able to attend those events that are applicable to your child or children. These events allow us to celebrate the accomplishments of the year and build our final memories for this school year. To those families whose only or last child will be off to the Middle School next year, please remember that you will always be part of the Valley Cottage Family. We thank you for sharing your children with us. This year’s fifth grade will always hold a special place in my heart.
