It is our pleasure to announce Valley Elementary PTO member Mrs. Stephanie Holbrook was presented the Weber School District Volunteerism Award at the District Board Meeting on January 7th.
Mrs. Holbrook started a volunteer set of courses entitle “Art Start” at our school. She personally has created lesson material for school-wide delivery by a small force of parent volunteers. The Art Start lessons are structured, by her, to address an artist and his/her art style. Often incorporated in the lesson delivery is music of the time period by a composer of the era.
During the time the volunteers are teaching the lessons in the classrooms, the teachers are given an hour, in grade level teams, to meet together in a PLC meeting to review student academic performance and needs. Her efforts and the willingness of our classroom volunteers, these past few years, has saved our school monies that would normally go toward substitutes during these meetings. The children at Valley have a wonderful enrichment opportunity through this program as well as a creative artifact for their portfolio after each lesson. These will be displayed at our Spring Art Show and then sent home at the end of the year. What she has produced is so amazing and the Valley Faculty is thrilled that her hard work is being recognized in this way.
Also worthy of note is the fact that Mrs. Holbrook also volunteers in reading with our Valley kids and multiple other PTO programs and efforts at the school.
Valley Elementary is very lucky to have such a dedicated individual who does so much good for so many!
Thank you Mrs. Holbrook and congratulations!
