Dear 2023-24 Shenandoah Valley Families:
The Shenandoah Valley Elementary School PTO (Parent-Teacher Organization) would like to welcome you to
the 2023-24 school year! We are excited to open our doors and our hearts to our families and community.
We hope that you will find Shenandoah Valley (SVE) a fantastic place for your child to learn and grow.
Many of the activities and resources at our school are provided through the efforts of the PTO. As a
parent/guardian in the SVE community, you are automatically granted membership on the PTO. With that, we
want to encourage you to participate and become involved when you can. Not only will it help build a better
community, but it will allow your family to meet other members of the SVE family. Whether you want to help
during the workday, in the evening, with other families, or in the comforts of your own home, we have many
ways for you to be involved. We have a lot of committees that are always welcoming new volunteers, so
please look on the back of this page and drop us an email if you are interested in learning more.
Please make sure to keep your eye out for the weekly emails PTO sends out as that is a great resource to find
out about upcoming events and opportunities. In addition, please make sure to join the Facebook PTO page
AND your grade level Facebook page as that is another form of communication PTO utilizes…not to mention a
great way to meet other families that may be in a classroom with your student.
At SVE, we believe it’s important to fundraise, but rather than selling items to raise money for the school, we
have created the Panther Pledge. This program was designed to allow families to make a direct donation
where 100% of the proceeds go directly toward supporting the school. You will receive more information
regarding the Panther Pledge throughout the year. We do this so the community can understand where
exactly the raised funds are going towards.
Again, we welcome you to the 2023-24 school year with open minds and open hearts. Please feel free to reach
out to us if you want to learn more or just need a friendly ear to speak with. We look forward to seeing you at
Aly Bennett, PTO President Troy Hargrove, PTO Vice President
