LETTER FROM HEAD OF SCHOOL:

We made it!

 

Happy summer time Valor Nation! I would like to take this opportunity to thank each of you for entrusting your children to our care this year! Thank you so much to each of you who have given so generously to make Valor Nation a reality! Thank you for your ongoing prayers, patience and grace as you helped us weather the challenges of a startup, growing and developing school! I feel so honored to have been a part of your family’s journey this year, and appreciate so much that I have had the opportunity to get a front row seat to your child’s growth. Together, we have witnessed numerous miracles on behalf of our global community. Together we have learned and sharpened one another.  

 

I pray your family has a fantastic summer of rest and relaxation, make lots of memories! I have the privilege of graduating my son from Valor this year, and I can tell you first hand the days feel long, but the years are so very short! Hug them and make memories this summer, you will be so glad you did!

 

We are eager to grow as a school into our next year! I will keep in touch over the summer to share all of our exciting plans for the future development. Both our school board and staff are already busy on plans for next year and beyond.  We will also be rolling out a Faith Journey 2.0 this summer as well. If you are not aware, I started a private Facebook Page the year we launched Valor and shared devotions and updates five days a week. If you would like to join this private group please send me an email (angie.taylor@valorschool.org) and I will add you into our private group.

 

Please share your Where in the World is Valor Nation photos with us for social media this summer. Where your Valor T-Shirt on your vacation and send us a picture with the location so we can post your pic to your social media. It is always fun to keep up with your family over the summer.

 

Many blessings and once again thank you for choosing Valor this year!

LETTER FROM HEAD OF SCHOOL:

Happy Birthday Valor Nation!

 

Just two short years ago, we joined together as a community and prayed God to do the miraculous and open doors for us to start a school! In those two years God has abundantly blessed our community and expanded His Kingdom through this community around the world! He has also made a way for us to have 3 schools in 3 countries! He has provided for our facility and needs. God has truly been good to us and so faithful!

 

I enjoyed celebrating Empowering Global Citizens day with you Friday! Our community truly has some world changers in the making! I loved getting to hear the hearts of our students as they shared about what they had learned and how they can contribute to the world with their gifts and strengths in an effective way! Thank you parents for all of your support, I know big projects like this take a village to complete and we are grateful for the way you have come alongside us to help make the project effective and meaningful for your child!

 

Our MAP scores are just starting to roll in and we are so encouraged by the growth we are seeing in so many of your students! You can be looking for your child’s reports to come home in the next couple of weeks and we get the testing closed out. As a staff we will utilize these scores to assess our curriculum choices for the fall, as well as our teacher professional development over the summer! We are eager to continue to learn and grow in providing your child a quality, meaningful education. I would love to encourage you to have your child continue to read and do Math over the summer months when and where possible. I am always surprised by the academic slump that can occur for our students over the summer. Your child will be well prepared for the fall as they keep strengthening their academic skills over the summer.

 

Finally, I would like to wish a very heartfelt congratulations to our 23 Valor Seniors, who will be graduating June 9. You are truly remarkable individuals, and bring me so much hope for our future as I have watched the way you have grown in your relationship to God, and using your strengths to add value to the world around you! We are proud to have you represent Valor as an alumni! Well Done! Everyone is welcome to join us for Valor’s very first Global Graduation! We are honored to have our South Korean students and their families joining us for this commencement.

 

Have a blessed weekend and thank you for being an important, vital part of Valor Nation!

MESSAGE FROM HEAD OF SCHOOL:

Hopefully everyone had the opportunity to see our wonderful students in action on Friday night at the all school awards night.  The students did an outstanding job performing, "Looking Up." I am always so encouraged when we get together to lift up the name of Jesus and celebrate all He has done for us personally and in our community.

Also, thank you for those of you who have had the opportunity to respond to our feedback survey. Your opinion matters to us. I personally have read the responses and look forward to sharing them with our school board so we can better serve your families in the years to come. If you have not had the chance to take the survey, please do so.

MESSAGE FROM HEAD OF SCHOOL:

Dear Valor Nation,

 

Just last week my family crossed a major milestone of watching our oldest child, Lauren graduate from college. What a thrilling moment it is for a parent to see their child accomplishing big things on their own; without mamma saying, is your homework done? As my husband and I contemplated the perfect gift for such a great accomplishment we ran through the usual ideas laptops, nice watch, monogrammed briefcase, money, etc… but nothing struck us as the perfect gift for our girl! Nothing seemed to capture all of our feelings of pride in a job well done, excitement and prayers for a big, bold future! It was then we realized if we were going to capture the power of this moment it was found in a connection of our hearts on a soul nourishing level, and nothing our money could buy would accomplish that. So we tossed all of our expensive gift ideas (whew) and went to the bookstore. Dad buying a favorite book from childhood and pouring his heart for his daughter  into words written down inside. Mom, found two books that have encouraged my faith and emboldened me to take the next steps of my journey following God. I wrote for her my belief in both her and an awesome, sovereign God who has designed a hope-filled future for her life. I assured her that through her success, failures and hardship that He would use it all to bring about her divine destiny already written out. Our family wept tears of joy and love as we exchanged gifts with her and took a moment to simply thank God for the joy He has given us in her! This my friends captured the power of that occasion for us like no fancy laptop would ever have done. This was a moment that fed our souls and knit our hearts closer together!

 

I share this with you because as a parent of three I understand how easy it is to get caught up in activities and comparisons of what others are doing and getting. The reality is, in 10 years the laptop would be obsolete (okay next year really), but our words and faith will remain. It has staying, eternal power and will be the truth that our daughter leans on in her journey into the adult world! Choose to capture the power of those special moments with your hearts, words of affirmation and encouragement. Choose to speak faith and life into the hardest moments for your child for this is what has sustaining, transformative power. Breath in the moment, put down your phones and capture it in your heart and minds, seal it into their heart and mind because they grow up so fast and those will moments will give life  and courage in the days ahead! Do not get caught into a trap thinking expensive vacations or gifts produce the quality of relationship we all long for. While gifts and vacations are awesome!! It always boils down to how we interact and speak into our children. Speak life, speak what matters most!

 

Be blessed!

 

Angie Taylor

MESSAGE FROM HEAD OF SCHOOL:

It is a busy month for Valor Nation! We have two major events with our White Knight Gala and the Sun Never Sets on Valor night. We also have some major competitions happening in underwater robotics, fine arts and track! I sure hope you and your family are able to jump in and enjoy some of these fantastic community events with us and experience first hand what makes Valor a great community to experience.

 

This last week I was blessed to hear from the Valor staff, students and a few parents about the impactful stories from missions week. I must say, I am truly in awe of how God so miraculously and graciously touched so many hearts and minds over the course of the last few weeks. There was life-changing encounters which we are eager to share with you at The Sun Never Sets on Valor Event, on April 23.

 

This Monday night is our Valor Consortium, at 7:00PM, as we are just beginning to make our plans for next year, I am eager to hear your thoughts on ways we can improve at Valor. We are eager to continue to grow and serve your family better  and need your help and feedback to do that. Please come ready to share your ideas and feel free to ask questions.

 

I have a $10 Starbucks gift card for the first 5 people who email me (angie.taylor@valorschool.org)  a quick video telling us why you love Valor. Feel free to have as much fun with it as you you want, or feel free to be as serious as you want. We would like to share these videos on our social media and web site. I am looking forward to seeing what fun ways your family can share the Valor love! If you are not following us on social media, I highly recommend it as we have made a huge effort to share more of our day to day world and Valor culture with our community.

 

Be blessed, this week, I hope to see you at one of our many events this month!

Holidays/happy-easter-signs-clip-art-happy-easter.jpg

In the year 312, just before his victory at the Battle of the Milvian Bridge won him the undisputed leadership of the Roman Empire, Constantine the Great had a heavenly vision of Christian symbols. That augury led him, a year later, to end all legal sanctions on the public profession of Christianity.

 

Or so a pious tradition has it.

 

But there’s a more mundane explanation for Constantine’s decision: He was a politician who had shrewdly decided to join the winning side. By the early 4th century, Christians likely counted for between a quarter and a half of the population of the Roman Empire, and their exponential growth seemed likely to continue.

 

How did this happen? How did a ragtag band of nobodies from the far edges of the Mediterranean world become such a dominant force in just two and a half centuries? The historical sociology of this extraordinary phenomenon has been explored by Rodney Stark of Baylor University, who argues that Christianity modeled a nobler way of life than what was on offer elsewhere in the rather brutal society of the day. In Christianity, women were respected as they weren’t in classical culture and played a critical role in bringing men to the faith and attracting converts. In an age of plagues, the readiness of Christians to care for all the sick, not just their own, was a factor, as was the impressive witness to faith of countless martyrs. Christianity also grew from within because Christians had larger families, a byproduct of their faith’s prohibition of contraception, abortion and infanticide.

 

For theologians who like to think that arguments won the day for the Christian faith, this sort of historical reconstruction is not particularly gratifying, but it makes a lot of human sense. Prof. Stark’s analysis still leaves us with a question, though: How did all that modeling of a compelling, alternative way of life get started? And that, in turn, brings us back to that gaggle of nobodies in the early first century A.D. and what happened to them.

 

What happened to them was the Easter Effect.

 

There is no accounting for the rise of Christianity without weighing the revolutionary effect on those nobodies of what they called “the Resurrection”: their encounter with the one whom they embraced as the Risen Lord, whom they first knew as the itinerant Jewish rabbi, Jesus of Nazareth, and who died an agonizing and shameful death on a Roman cross outside Jerusalem. As N.T. Wright, one of the Anglosphere’s pre-eminent biblical scholars, makes clear, that first generation answered the question of why they were Christians with a straightforward answer: because Jesus was raised from the dead.

 

Now that, as some disgruntled listeners once complained about Jesus’ preaching, is “a hard saying.” It was no less challenging two millennia ago than it is today. And one of the most striking things about the New Testament accounts of Easter, and what followed in the days immediately after Easter, is that the Gospel writers and editors carefully preserved the memory of the first Christians’ bafflement, skepticism and even fright about what had happened to their former teacher and what was happening to them.

In Mark’s gospel, Mary Magdalene and other women in Jesus’ entourage find his tomb empty and a young man sitting nearby telling them that “Jesus of Nazareth, who was crucified…has risen; he is not here.” But they had no idea what that was all about, “and went out and fled from the tomb…[and] said nothing to anyone, for they were afraid.”

 

Two disciples walking to Emmaus from Jerusalem on Easter afternoon haven’t a clue as to who’s talking with them along their way, interpreting the scriptures and explaining Jesus’ suffering as part of his messianic mission. They don’t even recognize who it is that sits down to supper with them until he breaks bread and asks a blessing: “…and their eyes were opened and they recognized him.” They high-tail it back to Jerusalem to tell the other friends of Jesus, who report that Peter has had a similarly strange experience, but when “Jesus himself stood among them…they were startled and frightened, and supposed that they saw a ghost.”

 

Some time later, Peter, John and others in Jesus’ core group are fishing on the Sea of Tiberias. “Jesus stood on the beach,” we are told, “yet the disciples did not know that it was Jesus.” At the very end of these post-Easter accounts, those whom we might expect to have been the first to grasp what was afoot are still skeptical. When that core group of Jesus’ followers goes back to Galilee, they see him, “but some doubted.”

 

This remarkable and deliberate recording of the first Christians’ incomprehension of what they insisted was the irreducible bottom line of their faith teaches us two things. First, it tells us that the early Christians were confident enough about what they called the Resurrection that (to borrow from Prof. Wright) they were prepared to say something like, “I know this sounds ridiculous, but it’s what happened.” And the second thing it tells us is that it took time for the first Christians to figure out what the events of Easter meant—not only for Jesus but for themselves. As they worked that out, their thinking about a lot of things changed profoundly, as Prof. Wright and Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI help us to understand in their biblical commentaries.

 

The way they thought about time and history changed. During Jesus’ public ministry, many of his followers shared in the Jewish messianic expectations of the time: God would soon work something grand for his people in Israel, liberating them from their oppressors and bringing about a new age in which (as Isaiah had prophesied) the nations would stream to the mountain of the Lord and history would end. The early Christians came to understand that the cataclysmic, world-redeeming act that God had promised had taken place at Easter. God’s Kingdom had come not at the end of time but within time—and that had changed the texture of both time and history. History continued, but those shaped by the Easter Effect became the people who knew how history was going to turn out. Because of that, they could live differently. The Easter Effect impelled them to bring a new standard of equality into the world and to embrace death as martyrs if necessary—because they knew, now, that death did not have the final word in the human story.

 

The way they thought about “resurrection” changed. Pious Jews taught by the reforming Pharisees of Jesus’ time believed in the resurrection of the dead. Easter taught the first Christians, who were all pious Jews, that this resurrection was not the resuscitation of a corpse, nor did it involve the decomposition of a corpse. Jesus’ tomb was empty, but the Risen Lord appeared to his disciples in a transformed body. Those who first experienced the Easter Effect would not have put it in these terms, but as their understanding of what had happened to Jesus and to themselves grew, they grasped that (as Benedict XVI put it in “Jesus of Nazareth–Holy Week”) there had been an “evolutionary leap” in the human condition. A new way of being had been encountered in the manifestly human but utterly different life of the one they met as the Risen Lord. That insight radically changed all those who embraced it.

 

Which brings us to the next manifestation of the Easter Effect among the first Christians: The way they thought about their responsibilities changed. What had happened to Jesus, they slowly began to grasp, was not just about their former teacher and friend; it was about all of them. His destiny was their destiny. So not only could they face opposition, scorn and even death with confidence; they could offer to others the truth and the fellowship they had been given. Indeed, they had to do so, to be faithful to what they had experienced. Christian mission is inconceivable without Easter. And that mission would eventually lead these sons and daughters of Abraham to the conviction that the promise that God had made to the People of Israel had been extended to those who were not sons and daughters of Abraham. Because of Easter, the gentiles, too, could be embraced in a relationship—a covenant—with the one God, which was embodied in righteous living.

 

The way they thought about worship and its temporal rhythms changed. For the Jews who were the first members of the Jesus movement, nothing was more sacrosanct than the Sabbath, the seventh day of rest and worship. The Sabbath was enshrined in creation, for God himself had rested on the seventh day. The Sabbath’s importance as a key behavioral marker of the People of God had been reaffirmed in the Ten Commandments. Yet these first Christians, all Jews, quickly fixed Sunday as the “Lord’s Day,” because Easter had been a Sunday. Benedict XVI draws out the crucial point here:

 

“Only an event that marked souls indelibly could bring about such a profound realignment of the religious culture of the week. Mere theological speculations could not have achieved this... [The] celebration of the Lord’s day, which was characteristic of the Christian community from the outset, is one of the most convincing proofs that something extraordinary happened [at Easter]—the discovery of the empty tomb and the encounter with the Risen Lord.”

Without the Easter Effect, there is really no explaining why there was a winning side—the Christian side—for Constantine the Great to choose. That effect, as Prof. Wright puts it, begins with, and is incomprehensible without, the first Christians’ conviction that “Jesus of Nazareth was raised bodily to a new sort of life, three days after his execution.” Recognizing that does not, of course, convince everyone. Nor does it end the mystery of Easter. The first Christians, like Christians today, cannot fully comprehend resurrected life: the life depicted in the Gospels of a transphysical body that can eat, drink and be touched but that also appears and disappears, unbothered by obstacles like doors and distance.

 

Nor does Easter mean that everything is always going to turn out just fine, for there is still work to be done in history. As Benedict XVI put it in his 2010 Easter message: “Easter does not work magic. Just as the Israelites found the desert awaiting them on the far side of the Red Sea, so the Church, after the Resurrection, always finds history filled with joy and hope, grief and anguish. And yet this history is changed…it is truly open to the future.”

 

Which perhaps offers one final insight into the question with which we began: How did the Jesus movement, beginning on the margins of civilization and led by people of seeming inconsequence, end up being what Constantine regarded as the winning side? However important the role of sociological factors in explaining why Christianity carried the day, there also was that curious and inexplicable joy that marked the early Christians, even as they were being marched off to execution. Was that joy simply delusion? Denial?

 

Perhaps it was the Easter Effect: the joy of people who had become convinced that they were witnesses to something inexplicable but nonetheless true. Something that gave a superabundance of meaning to life and that erased the fear of death. Something that had to be shared. Something with which to change the world.

MESSAGE FROM HEAD OF SCHOOL:

March is off to an epic start for Valor Nation! We are excited to share that we have enrolled 27 new students for the fall since March 1st,  here on the US campus, both our Korean and Philippines campuses are also experiencing an increase of families who are excited to join our movement! God has been so generous to align our path with families who are ready to help lift with us as we impact the world around us.

 

I am personally headed out of country with our India team. Our campus will be well taken care of under Rashell Linenberger’s (rashell.linenberger@valorschool.org)  protective eye, you can reach out to her in my absence should you need anything. Please make sure to join all of our teams in prayer and join our Facebook page to keep up to date on our journey! The reality is these experiences are life changing for staff and students. In addition to God’s miraculous work, another part of the reason for this life changing impact is that it is disruptive of our thoughts processes and patterns. Sometimes we fail to even recognize how much of our day is spent simply doing things out of habit, not because we have put great thought into it.  However, habits do not often produce the desired stretch and growth we long for ourselves and our kids. If we are going to continue to stretch and grow our minds we must consistently provide opportunities for cognitive dissonance to take place. Our mission trips provides this disruption in spades. Please make sure to join us when we return at our Sun Never Sets on Valor event, on April 23. You will have the opportunity to hear from our students, hear from our ministry partners around the world and see all that has been accomplished because of God’s faithful hand and your participation at Valor.

 

If you are not currently on our Valor Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/valorknights/, I definitely recommend you consider joining. We will be starting to share a weekly Vlog (video, blog) post about what is happening on the Valor culture and what makes us uniquely Valor.

 

On a personal note, I am starting a Brain Hack Blog on my personal FB page https://www.facebook.com/angie.taylor.399 . It is my hope to share some truth mixed with some ways to help us all become more effective in both our thinking and our faith!

 

We truly appreciates your prayers over the next week and look forward to sharing our testimonies with you when we return.

 

Blessings,

MESSAGE FROM HEAD OF SCHOOL:

In honor of our upcoming missions weeks I wanted to share a little with you about our why behind our missions.

 

Why We Do Missions?

 

“We are Christ’s ambassadors according to 2 Corinthians 5:20. God chose us to be his His representatives. He called us to go out, to proclaim the ‘good news’ – and to change the world. Living our faith privately was never meant to be an option.”

  • Richard Stearns, World Vision President

We have a life-changing message to share with the world. It is vital that our children are trained and equipped in the World and then given an opportunity to walk out the commands of the gospel. In James 1:22, He calls each of us to be doers of the word, not simply hearers. Mission trips give our students an excellent opportunity to put their faith into action. “You see that his faith and his actions were working together, and his faith was made complete by what he did.” James 2:22

 

The benefits of a mission trip are far-reaching and transformation in the lives of our students:

  1. The lives of our student, and often those they reach out to, are eternally impacted.
  2. We live in a “me” centered culture. A mission trip allows our students a larger perspective. The byproducts of this is often gratitude, a closer relationship with Jesus and servant leadership.
  3. Gaining a global perspective. This enhances our ability to train our students academically as they have a larger understanding of the world around them.

All students at Valor Christian School International will be on mission in the weeks to come. Each elementary class will have day trips, middle school will do local missions throughout the week, and in grades 9th – 12th students travel around the world. Your child’s participation as a student missionary will impact your whole family and have great impact for the Kingdom of God.

 

Blessings,

 

Angie Taylor

LETTER FROM HEAD OF SCHOOL:

Dear Valor Families,

 

March is perhaps my favorite month of our school year because we send our students all over the world. Yes, I am so excited to have our students experience culture and engage in mission, but beyond this is the life changing impact on each student who participates with us. There is something so powerful about students unplugging from social media, engaging in more focused prayer time and considering how he/she may add value to others. Helping our students learn to consider  how to add value to others is a mind shifting thought process. You may be surprised to understand that when we consider how we might add value to another, it actually improves our own self esteem. Why? Because, we start with the other person in mind, not one’s self. For example, when I understand that I can share the love of God or music with someone or simply demonstrate care for another. It automatically triggers my brain that I have something to offer of value, and therefore I am valuable. However, too often we start with a self focus and the thought process often leads us to compare ourselves, “I am not as good as someone else in speaking or singing and so therefore have no value to add”. It is a life brain hack that I hope to help instill in our students, consider how you may add value to others life. When I am at the grocery store or with my co-workers. I can add value by demonstrating I care about each person by simply engaging in conversation with them. Because, I seek to add value, I quickly move to a “I am valuable mindset”.  Studies are clear students who spend excessive time on social media are more depressed and anxious. I can assure you as an educator of 25 years, this is absolutely true. Looking to add value to others lives first  is actually a Biblical approach to the world, and has profound ramifications for our students who struggle in a self absorbed world.  (Philippians 2:3, I Cor. 13:4-7, Romans 12:10, Mark 12:31 and the list goes on). Through educational missions, I have watched countless students be transformed in their confidence. They are empowered with boldness in a new way simply because they sought to add value around the world. When we train our children with this mindset truly anything is possible!

 

We are making an intentional effort to step up our focus on prayer at Valor and would invite you to join us. Our staff is increasing our time spent in prayer with one another and in our classrooms. We will be starting a prayer group each Monday at 2 PM, right before carline. This is open for anyone who would like to pray or has special prayer requests. From the very foundations of Valor we have experienced God’s miraculous provision and it is our heart that we would always make this a central core of our culture.

 

Blessings on your week,

 

Angie Taylor

Message from the Head of School:

This last week we received confirmation from the AdvancEd Accrediting Commission that the recommendation for our full accreditation was approved! This is truly miraculous since all accrediting bodies require an organization to be in existence for two years before they can even begin the one to two year process to full accreditation. However, God gave us favor and opened the door for us to become accredited by the largest accreditation organization in the world.

 

God’s favor and grace on our school has been so evident from the very first moment we started sharing the vision to start a school. It is fitting that two years ago myself and a development  team began to dream and pray about what God wanted to do with our lives. Today, Valor and our two other Valor Global campuses stand to testify of the glory of God and His faithful hand of provision in just two short years!

 

It is our hope that all who are touched by our community worldwide would encounter the powerful love of an almighty creator and come to trust in His faithfulness for their own lives.

 

Please know that I pray for our families often. We are raising our children together in a challenging world, but we can be confident that the God of the universe has great wisdom that He generously grants us as we ask. God is for you, and if God is for you, what can stand against you? Please do feel free to share your prayer request with us, and please pray for us as we look ahead to our bright future together.

 

I’ll leave you with a quote from our accreditation report:

“The results of the school’s continuous improvement process to date are impressive.  Given that this is only year two for VCSI, the progress made is nothing short of extraordinary.  Clearly, the school’s commitment to continuous improvement has already achieved a number of positive results.  After year one, VCSI retained 98% of their staff, re-enrolled 95% of their students, and student enrollment growth was 30%. Given the strong leadership
(administration and Board), commitment of all stakeholders, and positive beginnings to date, VCSI is well positioned to continue to improve in future years.”

Letter from Head of School:

Last weekend reminded me of how determined I am to equip and empower a generation of students to be transformers of culture. Whether you supported the women’s march or not, it is abundantly clear our nation is desperate for a new generation of leaders who will speak truth with love. A new generation who will pave the road with social justice and action, not simply rants filled with hate for those who differ in opinion. We long for leaders who will be image bearers of Christ reaching the lost and setting captives free. We must model this behavior in our homes and in our words. We must set the standard of love and grace both in our home and in our school! Please know this is my faithful prayer. I pray God will embolden us as we draw near to Him to carry His name with grace on our lips to a world which is longing for hope. Valor is changing apathy into impact!

 

This Monday, is the night! Valor Nation Faith Journey and Open House @ 7 PM. I hope that you and your family will make every effort to be there. Bring your friends who may be interested in Valor and earn a 10% referral discount for each student you refer who enrolls.

 

February 1st, we will begin to re-enroll our Valor families. You will have sibling preference for your children who may not attend yet. You and your family will have the month of February to confirm your space for Fall of 2018. In March, we will open enrollment to the public. We recommend you re-enroll in February as we have already begun to have applications for March come in. We will be publishing our fall tuition rates and re-enrollment fees January 30, 2018.

 

May God bless you richly this week! I am eager to share with you Monday about the many miracles we have experienced as a community this year, and to share with you our plans for the future.

 

Blessings,

 

Angie Taylor

Head Of School:

Greetings from S  Korea,

 

Our trip has been incredibly productive so far! Yesterday, the school board and I participated in our Valor Korea’s Open House. What a joy to experience first hand the students and staff who share in our mission. It is our hope to bring our worlds together in even greater ways. In the same way the Valor USA’s  story was an inspiring faith journey of God’s miraculous provision. Valor Korea can also boast of comparable miracles in their opening and the provision from God in their first year. What is abundantly clear, is that God is establishing the work of our hands! We are excited to share more about this journey with you at our Open House on Monday, January 29 @ 7 PM.

 

The Valor School Board has been busy at work strategically planning out our growth and journey, to ensure our longevity and strength as a school. We are excited to share more of our plan with you soon.

 

I checked in on the Valor campus this week, and was quickly reminded how I am grateful for the strength of our staff to lead and love our students! They do not miss a beat! 

 

A big shout out to our Varsity Boy’s basketball team on two big wins on our home court this week! We are so proud of you guys!

 

I’ll be back to campus next week and look forward to plugging back into our home community!

 

God is definitely on the move all over the world and using our Valor mission in exciting ways!

 

Blessings,

Angie Taylor

DETAILS TO FOLLOW

Message from Head of School:

What a tremendous privilege to celebrate Martin Luther King Jrs’  birthday. He defined the epitome of innovation. He took a problem and dreamed how he might contribute to improve the world for others. That is the  innovative essence of what Valor hopes to create within our students, an ability to look at the world and dream of ways to improve it for others. We pray our students have the courage to implement those dreams. May we all learn and model how Dr King worked with such diligence to improve the world in such a peaceful innovative way!

 

This upcoming week the Valor School Board and myself will be in South Korea. It is our pleasure to join and support their efforts on our Valor campus there. Currently, we have one of our US students studying for 12 weeks in S Korea. It is exciting to see this dream all unfold. We are in awe of God’s gracious hand as He has provided for each step of this journey!

 

Join me and invite your friends to our Faith Journey and Open House! Our future is bright and we are excited to share it with you!

 

Have a blessed week, and Happy Birthday Dr King Jr, thank you for all your efforts to transform our world!

Message from Head of School:

Happy New Year Dear Friends!

 

I am filled with eager anticipation for 2018! We have witnessed such tremendous grace and provision in 2017. I am truly excited to build on what has been started. We will be sharing on January 29th about all of our miracles and school accomplishments which have occurred so far for us this year, highlighting our legacy donors and volunteers, as well as sharing about our future.  Bring an adult friend who currently does not have children who attend Valor to this event and receive some free Valor Swag.

 

The reason Valor has had the success early on is because many of us donated our time, talent and resource to this effort. We really are a community on mission! I think Margaret Mead puts it well when she said:

 

Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it's the only thing that ever has.

 

We will need you in the months and years ahead to help guide, strengthen and support our mission. We simply cannot do it without  you and the favor of God on us!

 

Here are some ways for you to consider how to come along side us in the months ahead.

  • Pray

Please pray over our staff and students. May we walk and grow in the wisdom and favor of God each day.

  • Volunteer

We have many opportunities from the One 2 One development committees to day to day help on the campus. Let us know your talents and we will find a place for you.

  • Donate

Every dollar donated helps us accomplish our mission and expand both our student’s academic programs as well as our missions outreach.

  • Refer us to your friends!

 Did you know you can receive a 10% referral discount on one tuition for each student who you refer to Valor?

 

We are going into a very busy season on our campus with Re-enrollment in February and open enrollment in March. Please watch for more information soon. Our spaces are limited and we do expect to fill so please make sure your child is on the list and their friends are here as well!

 

Also in March, we will be sending our high school students on missions trips to the Philippines, Haiti, India  and downtown Portland. Our students can still use your support and prayers as they embark on this life changing endeavor. If you have yard work, house work or babysitting that needs done we have a number of missions bound students looking for some extra work. Please give the office a call.

 

I am excited to be back in school and gather our community again! I’ve truly missed your family and look forward to the development work we have begun in growing Valor into a school which transforms culture!

Message from Head of School:  

Dear Valor Nation,

 

Now that we have a successful accreditation under our belt, I look forward to having more time to focus on building a rich community and culture. Valor was founded by teachers, parents and students all focused on one mission. Now that we have made it through our first year and achieved accreditation, it is important that we transition to the next step on our Faith Journey together. I look forward to establishing community habits and traditions which root our school deeply in faith and endearing traditions, while continuing to grow and stretch to be the school of the future full of innovation and global competencies.

 

I would like to invite you to spend some time with us each Monday morning (8am-9am) to enjoy coffee from our Student Council coffee bar, and build relationship through  sharing your challenges,  successes and the hopes your family is experiencing. There is no set agenda or presentation during this time, it is simply an opportunity for us to connect and learn more about one another.

 

As we look ahead to January please makes plans to join me January 29, for our school’s Faith Journey and  Open House. I will be sharing with our families and your friends where we have been (there have been a lot of miracles and our story is pretty amazing) and where we are headed. This will be an excellent opportunity to invite your friends and future Valor students to hear about our school and take a tour.

 

Here are some ways for you to consider how to come alongside Valor  in the months ahead.

  • Pray

Pray for wisdom for the school board and staff

Pray for protection for our students and campus

Pray for provision for each and every financial need

Pray for growth

  • Volunteer

We have many opportunities from the development committees to day to day help on the campus. Let us know your talents and we will find a place for you.

  • Donate

Every dollar donated helps us accomplish our mission and expand both our student’s academic programs as well as our missions outreach.

  • Refer us to your friends!
  • Did you know you can receive a 10% referral discount on a tuition for each student who you refer to Valor?

Be blessed and please know I am praying faithfully for your family!

Letter from Head of School:

Happy Thanksgiving Valor Nation!

 

We have so much to be thankful for this year!  As you know we had our AdvancEd Accreditation visit this week on November 13 & 14.  I am so pleased to announce the Accreditation Team has recommended Valor for the full accreditation for five years! This was the best possible outcome for our visit! This recommendation will go to the AdvancEd Accreditation Commission in January for final confirmation. We have every reason to believe this commission will give final approval for our school to be accredited. This is a major victory and accomplishment for our school. Please help me congratulate and thank the Valor staff and school board for their tireless efforts to accomplish this significant goal in such a short time frame! I am so proud of each of them and grateful for their diligence to serve Valor in this capacity. I would also like to give a special thanks to all of the parents who showed up to be interviewed by the accreditation team this week! We had one of the best parent turnouts the team had ever seen. I look forward to sharing our final accreditation report with you once it has been returned.

 

We look forward to seeing you this Monday, November 20 at Parent/Teacher Conferences! This is such a valuable time to connect with your child’s teacher and make sure we are all working well together for your child’s greatest success. If you will not be able to attend on Monday, please consider scheduling an alternative time with our staff. We always find student’s are the most successful when we work closely with their parents.

 

I am truly thankful for our Valor community as we go into this Thanksgiving Break, you are champions who make a difference in our world! Thank you for your sacrificial giving to our community through volunteering and/or donating! Together, we are a force to be reckoned with and a light to our world!

 

Thankful for you,

Angie Taylor

Letter from the Head of School:

Hello Lovely Valor Famlies:

What an exciting few weeks we have had on our campus. It was so fun to see our kinders celebrate the creation of the universe through the Creation Pageant last Friday. I loved seeing the creativity that went into each homemade costume to share this miraculous story. What I particularly appreciated was the brilliant reminder that we serve an all powerful God who spoke the world into existence, is there anything too difficult for our God? Perhaps Mark Batterson says it best in the conclusion of our Forty Day Challenge, “Prayer is the difference between appointments and divine appointments. Prayer is the difference between good ideas and God-ideas. Prayer is the difference between the favor of God and the luck of the draw. Prayer is the difference between closed doors and open doors. Prayer is the difference between possible and impossible. Prayer is the difference between the best we can do and the best God can do. I hope you were as encouraged as I was through this challenge. Please know our staff consistently pray for you and your family! We appreciate so much that you are a part of our community and we hope to be a blessing to your family’s world.

 

Monday our accreditation review starts! When you see our staff this week please help me thank them and love on them by giving them a shout out and pat on the back. They have worked incredibly hard to get our school to this accreditation review. I am so proud of the brilliant job they have done! An extra word of blessing or even a coffee would be so appreciated! I will share our results with you as soon as we receive them back from AdvancEd.

 

Our basketball teams are in full swing again! Check out the Valor sports page on our website for updated game information! Show your school pride and support a Valor athlete by cheering them on!

 

Thank you for sharing the Valor Faith journey with us, we are so grateful!

 

Angie Taylor

Letter from Head of School:

Thank you so much for joining us for our Fall program and Open House. This is always such a special night for our community to come together to enjoy the beauty and hard work of our children. It also provides us a great opportunity to be reminded about all of the important work that is happening around the world, because of your participation with Valor! We serve a brilliant God who hung the universe in place, and yet knows each one of our children by name and personality. What a privilege to share the gift of His extravagant love with our children and other children all around the world!

 

I am convinced that Valor’s model of enlarging our students’ perspective about the world around them, and empowering them to effectively contribute to that world is a key to their future success and happiness. I recently read an excellent article along these lines that I thought you may enjoy https://www.crosswalk.com/family/parenting/raise-unselfish-children-in-a-self-absorbed-world-11579072.html.

 

Can you believe we are almost into November? This will be a big month for our community! November 13 &14, we will host our final accreditation review with an eight person team from AdvancEd. We have been preparing for over a year for this visit, and our staff is very excited to have this part of the process completed. We will be sharing our results with our community as soon as we have received them from AdvancEd.

 

Please make every effort to join us for Parent/Teacher Conferences November 20. We are eager to collaborate with you for your child’s greatest success. It is important that you share with our teachers how you are feeling about the level of your child’s academics. Are they being challenged? Is the level of work she/he is being given too difficult? These are incredibly valuable conversations to have with your teacher. We want to make sure we are meeting your child right at the point of learning and will need your help for optimal success to place.

 

We wish you a very blessed weekend of rest! Enjoy these final, beautiful fall days with your family!

 

Blessings,

Angie Taylor

Letter from Head of School:

School/draw-the-circle-40-day-prayer-challenge-2016.jpg 

Are you enjoying the forty day prayer challenge with us? The book we are reading, Draw the Circle, by Mark Batterson, has been both challenging and affirming for the course of our school! Our hope is that our students would gain understanding that our faith is not something we simply speak about, but our faith is something we act upon and trust God to demonstrate His greatness through our lives. It has been exciting to hear the ways God is showing up and demonstrating that He hears us as we pray and stand on His promises.

 

Next week is our Valor School Program Go! This is a great opportunity to share about the Valor community with your friends and family. Come and meet our students from around the world through our One 2 One initiative. Our program will be brief allowing you time to enjoy the experience of your child’s classroom and see what we have been learning this year. The program starts at 7:00 PM.

 

Our staff has spent the last few weeks analyzing student MAP scores in order to better support our student learning on our campus. Your child’s teacher will be sharing this information with you soon, along with target growth goals to make sure we are helping your child grow to their fullest potential this school year!

 

Shout out to our middle school volleyball team for making into the playoffs. We are proud of your determination and winning attitudes on the court!

 

We pray you have a blessed weekend with your family and look forward to having our whole community on the campus next Friday night!

Message from Head of School: Angie Taylor

Happy Friday the 13th Valor Nation! I am so glad we know in whom we can trust and superstition has no place for us on this day. In fact, I am eagerly anticipating God to move mountains upon our behalf today! He is able to accomplish far more than we could even think to ask Him (Ephesians 3:20), we simply need to step out in Faith! Why do I generally start most letters or end most programs speaking about Faith? Because, the very school your kids are enrolled in was all an act of bold faith! God met us in such huge ways last year, that I can only offer you this hope that He is faithful to do what He promises! You can trust Him! I am so passionate about this because we live in such a chaotic world full of fear which can suck the very life out of us if we spend our time and energy focused there. It is my goal and greatest desire to consistently offer Hope for a good future. The Word tells us that Christ came to set the captives free and bind up the wounds of the broken-hearted. That is a message that we all need. Be blessed this weekend, I hope you are enjoying the Forty Day Prayer Challenge with us! Wow, what an inspiring book.

 

Here are a couple important updates for you as we look towards next week:

 

Attendance

If your child is going to be absent for any reason please reach out to us through

          attendance@valorschool.org for any illness, prearranged absence or tardiness. T

          In order to receive homework or in class work please reach out via email to the

          teacher directly.

 

Our flu season is upon us early this year and there are a few key elements which

         will help keep our community to healthier.

  1. Please remind your child about the importance of handwashing with soap and water.
  2. Please keep your child home from school if he/she has a fever or has vomited within the past 24 hours before the school day.

 

JOG-A-THON Update:  We should have grand totals for you in next week’s newsletter. Here is what we do know, we ran 2335 laps, highest was 23 laps.

 

 

College Applications: Please keep our 20 Seniors in prayer as they have started

                                   Submitting their applications for college entrance. Pray for

                                   Peace, direction, and favor for every student.

 

Blessings,

 

Angie Taylor

Message from Head of School:

Dear Families:

 

Valor Nation prayer challenge is off to an amazing first week! We have over 80 people who have joined our challenge and we are excited to see how God will move on our behalf.  It is not too late to jump into our Forty Day Prayer Challenge, we are reading the book Draw the Circle by Mark Batterson. If you have not found our Forty Day prayer group on FB, you can find the link on our Valor Christian School International FB page.

 

I would also like to share with you that we have joined hands with a new ministry for our One 2 One initiative. In addition to sponsoring students in Haiti and the Philippines, we have added students in South Korea and Kenya. Each ministry we work with is well vetted, and all of our One 2 One dollars goes to ensure students are educated. We have recently started a One 2 One task force to help us integrate our global community. You can see our official launch of this team at our Fall Program on October 27.

 

Please know our hearts have been heavy with yours in the face of the Las Vegas tragedy. As we join in prayer, we also look for ways to create greater security on our own campus. Our school board has been assessing our own security and continue to look to make improvements as we see is appropriate, please know that safety is our top priority. We need each family to help with this. Please make sure doors are closed well when exiting and entering the building. Please alert a Valor staff member immediately if you see someone or something which poses a safety risk on our campus. We care deeply about our security and need your help.


This week on October 12 &13 we will have professional development days for our staff to work through student MAP scores and prepare for our accreditation. Also next week, Living Hope Fellowship will be hosting Flourish, A Women’s Conference on October 13 & 14 and the women of Valor have been invited. I will have the privilege of sharing in one of the break out sessions and would love to have you join me. To find more information you can log in to http://www.thisishope.com/flourish/

 

Our jog-a-thon was a huge success thanks to Colbie Lusted! Colbie has gone above and beyond to plan, organize and implement our new play space. She has also played a significant role in securing the funds for it. Colbie, Valor is so grateful for you! You are truly amazing! THANK YOU to Valor Nation for all you have done to help raise funds, you are such a blessing! We will let you know how much we raised in the weeks to come.

 

Have a blessed weekend with your family!

Dear Families


Our accreditation review is quickly approaching and we could use your help. AdvancEd would like to hear from our families about your opinions on the school. Please take a moment to take our survey for AdvancEd, we truly value your honest feedback and look forward to growing and learning how we best can serve our community. If you took this survey last week, thank you we have received your responses, no need to take it again.

 

http://eprovesurveys.advanc-ed.org/surveys/#/action/33658/52539

 

Just a reminder about our two challenges:

 

The Valor School Board would like to invite you to join us in the forty day prayer challenge, starting on October 1st. We will be reading the book and praying through, “Draw the Circle, the Forty Day Prayer Challenge” by Mark Batterson. We have a number of our high school students who have also chosen to take this challenge with us. We are asking for staff and families to join us in this life changing endeavor.  To participate in the challenge with us, send us an email and let us know you are taking the challenge, purchase your book online, and then commit to forty mornings to prayer and journal, starting October 1.

 

The second challenge that has been given is regarding the jog-a-thon. We have a good friend of Valor that has pledged to match up to $10,000 for our jog-a-thon. Please help us unleash the full $10,000 by participating in this fundraiser. Let us know if you need more information to help us reach this goal!

 

We wish you a blessed weekend!

Letter from Head of School: Angie Taylor

Happy Friday Valor Nation! I pray you have had a productive week and get some well deserved relaxation with your family.  As year two is well underway God has patiently reminded me of our continual need for Him. This vision is the Lord’s and our success is established through Him for His glory.  We are all in need of His grace and His provision daily. His mercies are truly new every morning. Each morning I consistently pray one of my favorite verses over Valor families. The passage is found in the Message Bible in Ephesians 3:

 

14-19 My response is to get down on my knees before the Father, this magnificent Father who parcels out all heaven and earth. I ask him to strengthen you by his Spirit—not a brute strength but a glorious inner strength—that Christ will live in you as you open the door and invite him in. And I ask him that with both feet planted firmly on love, you’ll be able to take in with all followers of Jesus the extravagant dimensions of Christ’s love. Reach out and experience the breadth! Test its length! Plumb the depths! Rise to the heights! Live full lives, full in the fullness of God.

20-21 God can do anything, you know—far more than you could ever imagine or guess or request in your wildest dreams! He does it not by pushing us around but by working within us, his Spirit deeply and gently within us.

Our journey as parents is the most exhilarating, important task any of us have on our plate. Frankly, it is too challenging and important to just go it alone. However, we can trust that God has a divine plan and purpose for every individual life and wants to unlock the mysteries of each heart. It is such a privilege to walk alongside you in this journey and see what God will do.

 

As we look to the week ahead we can use some volunteers to help us spread bark dust around the campus in our efforts to begin to beautify our space. Please let lisa.osborn@valorschool.org know if you can help. We will also be rolling out the information for our jog-a-thon fundraiser coming soon, which will go to help us continue our innovative play development.

 

Have you discovered our Student Council Coffee Bar in the school lobby yet? It is open every morning! You can support Valor Nation and kick start your day with a specialty coffee that will rival any local coffee shop. Plus, our student council members are the friendliest baristas in town.

 

Please see our school sports calendar to see how you can support Valor Nation Sports! Sports Calendar

 

Have a blessed weekend, and see you Monday!

VALOR TIMES WEEKLY

WE: 9/30/17

 

Message from Head of School:Logos/Angie.jpeg

Did you see it yet? Our playground is starting to take shape and our students are so excited! You can help us complete our playground by participating in the the Jog-a-thon this year. We have received a $10,000 matching donation pledge! We have a friend of Valor who is willing to give our school $10,000 for our playground development if we can match this amount. Please consider digging deep and help us unleash this generous donation.

 

One thing that made this school a spectacular community was the “all in” attitude of our staff, students and families last year! As we begin this new year please know that Valor’s success is still completely dependent upon God’s gracious favor and your help lifting as a volunteer, or as a giver! It is pretty hard to believe that Valor is well into our second year, and God has richly blessed the work of our hands. However, our work has only begun!

 

We are excited to announce that we are adding students to our One 2 One mission in Kenya, Africa. We will be partnering with Justus Amunga’s orphanage and school to enable his orphans to receive an education. Please come to our school fall program on October 27, 2017 @ 7 PM to meet our new scholarship recipients online and hear more about the way we are developing our relationships on a global scale. Please consider how you may partner with Valor and help us transform an apathetic culture into one that has profound global impact. Are you all in?

 

Next week I will be pulling away to the high school retreat with our high school staff and students. Please pray for our staff, students and speakers as we take time to connect with God and each other. Michael Badriaki, author of the book “When Helping Works” will be our guest speaker. Mr. Badriaki grew up in Uganda and has a profound testimony to share about the way God used his education to impact the kingdom.

 

Please take a moment to take our next survey for AdvancEd, we truly value your honest feedback and look forward to growing and learning how we best can serve our community.

Elementary Update:

The rainy season is upon us! Please make sure your kiddo is coming to school with attire appropriate for the rain! We do have indoor recess options but when there is a light sprinkle we often prefer for the kids to be outside and playing! So please make sure they come to school in their rain gear!

 

Please remember elementary students can be dropped off at the Valor entrance, where they will be escorted upstairs to the library (7:30-8:00 is free-of-charge). At 8:00am, when teacher's doors open, they will be walked to their classroom by a staff member. We would hate to see kiddos waiting in the rain so please feel free to utilize this option! So come on inside and stay dry!
