Thanking Staff and Faculty

Please help us celebrate all our teachers and staff by posting a note to the “Thank You, Valor!” Message Board. It works as a virtual greeting card and you can post your messages in various multimedia formats: type a simple thank you note, add a picture with a caption, or upload a short video shoutout. 
You can address Valor as a whole, thank a particular teacher, a group of teachers who have impacted your year, a whole department, or our amazing support staff who are invaluable to our school’s functioning and success.
No need to register or sign in, just simply click “Add/+ to Board”, input your ‘Thank you’ message in whichever format you prefer, and type in your name. There is no need to provide your email address, so feel free to skip this step. 
We need your help to make this virtual card amazing for ALL our FACULTY and STAFF! Thank you for participating and making our staff feel appreciated for all they have done this past school year. 
Best of blessings, 

The Valor Parent Association Board
