Golden Valley Charter Schools is pleased to announce we are enrolling Transitional Kindergarten through Second Grade for our new school, Golden Valley Tahoe School. The grass roots beginnings of this school mirror the hard work and determination of the pioneers of the first Golden Valley Charter School eighteen years ago. For more information about enrollment, please visit the Golden Valley Tahoe School webpage.

What a delightful evening that was had by all on Thursday, November 9th. We had a wonderful turnout in support of the children and the work we are doing in the kindergarten. I really appreciate the strength in our parent body and the warmth that we receive from the community. The children I walked with included families from all five kindergartens at both Golden Valley Schools. The children were reverent and awed by the experience of walking in the great wide world under the stars with their handmade lanterns and coming across Mother Earth in the trees.

We are eager to announce that Tuesday, November 28th kicks off our exciting annual program: “Week of Giving.”

As many of you may know, Tuesday the 28th is the nationally celebrated “Giving Tuesday.” This special day is designed to support and shed light on all the great charities in our communities. As opposed to the consumerism of “Black Friday” and “Cyber Monday,” this is a day to celebrate nonprofit organizations by donating to your favorite charities. During this season of gratitude, it's important to remember what is truly important and we hope you’ll join us in celebrating that theme during our “Week of Giving.”
