THANK YOU to our Library Puppet Show Committee from all of the students at Valley View for another great puppet show! Barb Paier and Jodie Bade played "starring roles", along with Paula Ables, Susannah Berman, Dana Bocock, Kathy and Peter Brumme, Leslie Edwards, Paige Hansen, Cheree Jetton, Sofia Kiske, Kari Leighton, Julie and Peter Shantz, Erica Vogel, and Matt Westfield.
Ten of our student volunteers braved a stormy night to go the the WHS Performing Arts Center where Book People Bookstore brought author Brian Selznick to talk about his new book The Marvels. His book The Invention of Hugo Cabret has been a Valley View favorite, so it was fun to see slides of how the movie set so closely matched the illustrations from the book. We all went home that night anxious to read the new book and inspired by Brian Selznick's art and writing!
Thanks to all of Valley View for making the book fair so much fun for all of our book-loving Cardinals and their families! Once again Donuts for Dads got us off to a great start. Even Clifford, the big red dog, stopped by to join the fun.
Special thanks to all the volunteers who pulled it all together, led by Elizabeth Ruff, Shelby Hanson, Pilar Richards, and Jodi Bade.
Mrs. Iles, Valley View Librarian, welcomes you to the VVE Library.
