    Green Valley Teacher/Staffer Spotlight: Have you checked out the school website lately? All the fresh updates and clean links there are thanks to our latest staff addition, Technology Instructional Aide, Courtney Rudberg. Read on to learn more about the lovely lady filling in this key GV role.

    Mrs. Rudberg has been working with kids since 2006, but she has been in her role at GV for about 6 months, beginning in December 2020. She has enjoyed working in a few of the classrooms, including TK and 3rd Grade. She really loves to work with kids, from seeing the joy on their faces when the complete a task or learn something new, to being the one they will go to with questions or for help.

    In her time at GV, she's really relished her time with the TK kids, to the point of having sore cheeks at the end of class from smiling so much! Her favorite GV memory to date has been being on campus to welcome back the hybrid students, alongside our amazing and cheerful mascot, Gus! Remote teaching has been pretty tricky, but has also been fun. One time, she was working with the TK kids to paint a rocket for "R" week, and noticed a student holding her paintbrush with her toes! So impressive but also so hilarious! As things start to approach some normalcy with school days, Mrs. Rudberg cannot wait to give the kids a big hug or play real tag on the playground!

    Mrs. Rudberg loves to listen to music, especially by the water - her dream concert would be to hear The Beatles play on the beach! Mrs. Rudberg wants GV to know: "Thank you Green Valley! This has been the most rewarding job and I am so blessed to be apart of the GV community. Go Colts!"

    Pick up days are Thursdays and Fridays between 10:30 am - 3:45 pm. Please make sure you come to the front parking lot of Green Valley on the dates listed above to collect important materials and work your student needs for remote learning -- or send a friend to grab it for you!  It's not just pens and crayons, but worksheets and other specific items your student's teacher has prepared for your child to work on at home in conjunction with the virtual teaching.  To save resources, please keep the green plastic bag you received at the last pick up and keep the personalized canvas bag that is to come, as they will be reused and swapped out for each other during each pick up date.  This will help teachers and staff to continue to prepare materials for your child!

    Reading

    Students/Parents,

    Are you looking for something good to read?  Our school library is still available to you--even though we are doing this very differently than we have in previous years.  So, why not learn how you can get access to actual books from your school library?  We have a wonderful selection of great books!  All you have to do is request library book holds (go to the Green Valley library webpage) and watch the video to learn how to request a hold or multiple holds for library books.  I'll process these holds and they will be ready at the grade level library curbside pickup (if the library books are available and holds were received by the deadline).  

    TK-5 holds/requests for library book(s) are due by Thursday, 4/8/21 by 1PM for curbside/MPR library pickup on Thursday, 4/15/21 and Friday, 4/16/21.

    TK-2 holds/requests for library book(s) are due by Thursday, 4/22/21 by 1PM for curbside/MPR library pickup on Thursday, 4/29/21 and Friday, 4/30/21.
