Happy New Year!

From all of us at Valverde Elementary We would like to Wish our Jaguar Families and the community a Happy New Year!

We would like to take a moment to share with our Jaguar Families the people and business that help us provide resources to our students and parents. The impact every single person who walks in our door and decides to support our students is beyond measurable. We are indebted to our community partners and we cannot thank you enough for your generosity and demonstrating the same value we try to instill in our students; Kindness!

Tech for All

Thank you Rose and her wonderful team of volunteers for collaborating with Valverde for the past three years in making sure our students receive a FREE used computer. You and your staff have touched many lives and we truly appreciate the hard work and generosity that you and your staff demonstrate! We cannot express how much we APPRECIATE you!!

Ashford University         University of the Rockies         BridgePoint Education

Thank you all for your continued support over the years and continuing to bring opportunities to our students! It is through the great people at these institutions that our students have been able to have book club reading buddies, online tutor-mate as well as donated Thanksgiving food bags and Christmas Family adoptions. Not only do these wonderful people support in this magnitude, but they also donate funds for student uniforms for students who cannot afford the uniform as well as donations for classroom supplies. Additionally, we receive student  school supplies at the beginning of the year to ensure our students are ready to learn on the first day of class. THANK YOU Ashford Univeristy, Univeristy of The Rockies and Bridgepoint Education for making our students and families feel loved!

Valiant Products Corporation

Thank you Valiant employees and families! Valiant is a community-based organization that is right here in our neighborhood. We feel very honored and thankful to have the opportunity to be able to pair up their employees with some of our families for the Holidays. For the past two years, Valiant and their employees have adopted some of our neediest families and helped them make Christmas a wonderful day. Their generosity goes beyond the one day, in fact, one of their employees has formed a lasting relationship with one of our families that we will all cherish and remind us of the significance of making connections in our community and the impact it makes in our students lives! Thank you so much for your continued LOVE and support!

Flyers for Kids- Dan Debacco

Thank you Dan and your organization Flyers for Kids for choosing Valverde as your school to partner with two years ago! Flyers for kids have not only provided donations to our students in terms of clothes, shoes, food pantry, medical supplies and school supplies, but they have also taken our 3rd, 4th and 5th graders to the Denver Zoo Lights and provided meals, toys and activities. This event is one of the most amazing events of the year for our students and many of them have never experienced the Zoo at night during the holiday. As many can imagine, this is an experience that lasts a lifetime!   Dan and his board members fundraise all year long to be able to take our students on this trip and we could not be more thankful for the hard work and energy that is put into this event and for that WE THANK YOU!
