Please put textbooks inside a plastic bag before loading them in your backpack on rainy days to avoid damages.

Our task at Valley High School is to provide learning opportunities for students that empower them to become responsible, ethical citizens who are both academically and technologically adept. We also require students to employ complex thinking skills in order to solve problems as individuals and as group members. Lastly, we strive to find opportunities that will enhance students' ability to participate in, and contribute to, a culturally diverse society.
ELK GROVE REGIONAL SCHOLARSHIP FOUNDATION –
Elk Grove Regional Scholarship Foundation scholarship applications will be available after December 1, 2016 for Elk Grove Unified School District graduating seniors. Foundation scholarships will be awarded to high school seniors graduating in May, 2017 and planning to attend a trade school, four year university/college, or community college after high school graduation.
In 2016 the Foundation awarded 172 scholarships totaling over $200,000, and it expects to meet or exceed this amount in 2017. Many of the Foundation scholarships are based on a student’s experience and career choice and not on a high grade point average.
After December 1, 2016 information about the scholarships, along with scholarship applications, can be found online at www.elkgroversf.org. The deadline for submitting applications is January 20, 2017.
We encourage all students who plan on receiving additional education after high school to apply for these scholarships.
**Attached is a list of scholarship our Valley students can apply for as of December 1st. Letters of Recommendations are required so please get those letters requested now from your community members, counselors and teachers. The personal data forms is also attached.
