Greetings from the Valley,
It is such an honor and privilege to be the Principal of Valley Elementary School. From my first day as an Assistant Principal in 2010 to my first day as Principal in 2014, the students, staff and parents have shown me nothing but kindness. For that I am very thankful and appreciative. It is my deepest desire that your child receives the safe, caring and quality education that he/she deserves in order to create, as our vison states, an environment that will develop life-long learners enabling them to become productive members of society. We must all kindle our desire to make sure this happens, for as Ralph Waldo Emerson once said, “What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us.”
James H. Tackett
Principal, Valley Elementary School
