On Friday, Rylan (right) and her friends Lily and Dia  joined Mrs. Sjerven as Principals for the Day. This deal was a silent auction item from our recent Spring Fair.

The girls assisted Mrs. Sjerven with her duties, helping in the classrooms and were treated to a lunch at a restaurant!IMG_2273



IMG_4361Thank you to all our sponsors, volunteers, students, parents and especially PAC for making this venture a big success!!!


Thank you to all the Happy Valley family members who came out and ran in the TC 10km and Thrifty Foods Family Run.  It was great to see so many members of our school out being active.  A special shout out to Charlotte Willing who ran the 10km and Arlo Rosales who ran in the kids family run.IMG_3049IMG_3037IMG_3052
