BTS Picnic at Valley View
The Valley View Elementary School Education Foundation is holding a Fall Family Picnic on Friday from 5:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. to invite the families and community to get together to get to know each other. Dinner plates are $5. There will be hamburgers, hot dogs and a vegetarian option. The sixth grade class will be selling drinks and desserts for $1.
Valley View has been trying to raise money for several years to replace an outdated computer lab. This year, the Education Foundation, run by volunteer parents and headed by President Nicci Bates Amberg, hopes to reach its goal of $18,000. Everyone’s help is needed! A GoFundMe page has been created for donations: https://www.gofundme.com/valleyviewschool.
The picnic’s theme is “Mission Possible” – meaning it is possible to raise the funds and equip Valley View students with new computers.
Valley View Elementary School is located at 4900 Maryland Ave. in La Crescenta.
