School Programs Explained

Valley View News

Weekly news program broadcasted by students to discuss current events and happenings around VVCM.  Students are selected by their teachers and Mr. Stewart with additional selected guests each week.


Grand Greeters

The purpose of the Grand Greeters program is to assist with the safe, efficient, and expedient drop off of students attending Valley View Charter Montessori.  Participation is open to fourth, fifth, or sixth grader, has a signed parent permission slip on file with the teacher, and is committed to being present during his/her assigned times. Grand Greeters are selected by the scheduled teacher and starts at 7:45 each morning and ends at 8:00.


Peace Patrol

Peace Patrol is a program that allows our upper grade students to serve as mentors, problem solvers, and friend finders at recesses and lunchtime. We like to think of them as an intervention opportunity before a yard duty or other adult steps in. The students that are chosen will need to fill a leadership role and show positive decision making skills.  Four students are selected by their teacher (4th, 5th, and 6th only).  Selected students should show good character, be responsible for their school work, and have strong interpersonal skills.  Students will serve for approximately half of the school year and need to get permission from their parent in order to participate.  If selected, your students will participate in a one day training that teaches them how to approach and navigate through the different aspects of a Peace Patrol member. They will be assigned a partner and a scheduled day/time to report for duty.  The training process begins after winter break.
