Welcome to Valley Catholic Elementary School! I’m eager for you to learn more about our school and our commitment to our students. We are a tight-knit Catholic community run by the Sisters of St. Mary of Oregon and led by their vision.

At Valley Catholic Elementary School, we actively live out our mission, “committed to living out Catholic values and following Jesus’ example through prayer, service, and love.” We do this by providing an academically rich, faith-filled learning environment. We respect, affirm, and value each other, seeing each day, activity, and challenge as an opportunity to learn about ourselves and others. Through our school program, we encourage all students to develop a true sense of justice, peace, compassion, and respect for all of God’s creation. As we do this, we maintain high academic and behavioral standards, preparing students for lifelong learning, leadership, and service.

We are committed to working together with parents to provide our students not only with a quality education but also a safe, positive environment in which to learn. Recognizing parents as the primary educators of their children, we value the relationship between the school and parents as a partnership. We encourage parents to take an active role in the education of their children by promoting student responsibility and helping students to develop a passion for education.

We are very much appreciative of your desire to learn about Valley Catholic Elementary School. I encourage you to learn more about our school by exploring our website, engaging in conversation with our school’s parents, or by calling us and arranging a visit. If you have any questions about our school, please feel free to contact us by phone at (503)718-6500 or by email at kjacobson@valleycatholic.org.

Blessings upon you and your family,
