4 Tech Tips for Parents to Embrace Digital Technology

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

VALOR TIMES 

week ending:11/18/17

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!
