  • Reading Garden landscaped

    Reading Garden growing at Boston Valley Elementary

    The landscaping for Boston Valley Elementary School’s new Friendship Reading Garden is in place and the next step will be building and installing stadium-style bench seating. When complete, the 20’x20’ garden will become a tranquil setting for teaching and learning, particularly literacy skills and a love of reading. It will include walkways and plantings, with seating to accommodate a class, as well as more intimate spaces for reading. The catalyst for this garden was an approximate $4,000 grant from Lowe’s Toolbox for Education. Community fund raising is also supporting the project.

  • Parents: Please opt-in for school text messages

    You spoke…we listened. Many parents have told us that they prefer to receive school notifications via text message or email instead of automated phone calls. So, this school year, the district is relying less on “robo calls” to relay certain information and more on text/email through service provider SchoolMessenger. Parents: The district must have your correct cell phone number and/or email address on file in order for you to receive notifications. Additionally, to receive texts, you must take the extra step of opting-in.
