Please let me take a moment to introduce Valley View Middle School. We are located at 89th Street and Portland Ave. South in Bloomington, MN. Our school serves students in 6th through 8th grade. Our student population is approximately 77% diverse. Additionally, approximately 75% of our students receive Free or Reduced Price lunch meals. This means, their family’s average income is below $45,000 for a family of four. Recent years have created many financial challenges for our Valley View Middle School students and families. Despite these struggles, our students are engaging in learning to the best of their abilities on a day to day basis!
Fundraising, through our families and through our PTSA, is complicated when the majority of our families have many barriers to making ends meet. Therefore, it is with great compassion for our students and families, that Valley View Middle School is reaching out to the Bloomington Community for financial support.
Our greatest needs at Valley View Middle School are:
Classroom supplies and materials
Student field trip scholarships
Funds to purchase snacks, bus cards, winter coats and boots, and other basic needs for our most vulnerable students
Student school supplies including PE clothing, (shorts, shirts, swimsuits, tennis shoes), proper attire for sports and athletic participation (uniforms, tennis shoes, workout clothing) and general supplies (paper, pencils, tagboard, colored pencils, earbuds, binders)
Incentives for students meeting and exceeding expectations
Teacher innovation projects
Financial support for students to access camps and other afterschool/summer learning opportunities.
