Message from the Principal:

Dear Valley Cottage Families,

As we begin our 2019-2020 school year, I would like to express how honored I am to be the Principal of this wonderful school.  I look forward to working with you to help make this year and the many years to come, a positive experience for our children.  Here at Valley Cottage Elementary we are committed to providing an excellent education and a nurturing environment for students to learn and grow. We truly have the privilege of preparing our leaders for tomorrow.

 As we prepare for the upcoming school year, please know that my door is always open. I strongly believe that it will take all of us - parents, guardians, faculty and staff - working together to provide the supportive environment that our children need to reach their fullest potential.

 It is with great love and enthusiasm that I embark upon this journey with you. Please feel free to contact the main office or email me should you have any questions or concerns.

 With that, I anxiously anticipate the fall, for the opportunity to get to know you all.


Best Wishes,

 Lucrisha Addison-Harris
