This past month has flown by! We had our annual Jog-a-Thon event on October 18. Not only was this event a fundraiser for the school, but an opportunity to build community and grow together. We had over 100 volunteers on hand to make the event successful! On November 20, the students will gather to celebrate their accomplishments from the Jog-a-Thon at an assembly. We are all excited to see which classes ran the most, who improved from last year, and how much money we were able to raise as a school!
Earlier this week, I had the pleasure of surprising third grade teacher, Nancy Fallin, with a phone call from the K103 radio station. Mrs. Fallin was nominated for teacher of the month, by one of our school families, and won for the month of November! In addition to some fun prizes, she will be featured on their morning show, and we will host a short assembly later this month to honor Mrs. Fallin and present her with the award. Please join me in congratulating her for this well-deserved accomplishment! This serves as a wonderful reminder that we are truly blessed with some incredible teachers here at Valley Catholic!
