Welcome back! It is so nice to see our campus bustling with students once again. For those whom I have not met, my name is Melissa Doxtator and I am the new Valley Catholic Elementary School principal. I am an alumnus of Valley Catholic and returned to campus in 2016 to serve as the principal at the Early Learning School.  I am very excited to have made the transition to the elementary school and to have the opportunity to work with our incredible team of staff, students, and families.

Each year we reflect, discuss and pray about a theme for the new school year.  Our theme this year is, Love like Jesus.  Additionally, we look at quotes and Bible verses for each quarter that will help us further comprehend the theme.  Our first quarter Bible verse is, We loved because He first loved us.  1 John 4:19.  Students will see the theme and quote in their classrooms and will talk about it with their teachers and peers. We share the theme and quotes with our families so that students can make connections between school and home.

On behalf of the entire Valley Catholic Elementary School staff, we are beyond excited to begin this new year with our wonderful community of students and families.  We cannot wait to see what lies ahead and to work together this year!

In Christ,

Melissa Doxtator
