December Safe Routes to School

This December, we are holding our 3rd annual "Walk & Roll for Wheels Month", to focus on noticing what's around us when walking or rolling, keeping us safe, and making our routes interesting and beautiful. To help students do that, we've created an updated, fun Scavenger Hunt Challenge that they can do on their route to school or anywhere during the month of December.  And we already have our December Challenge Video Commercial ready for you to share to help promote the challenge! 


Students who complete our December Walk & Roll for Wheels Challenge and submit their Scavenger Hunts SRTS by Monday January 9th will be entered into a drawing to win a scooter or roller skates!  


Christmas Lights Bike Parade  Petaluma!



I am always so proud to be the Principal of Hidden Valley Elementary School.  I am very grateful for the wonderful students, teachers, staff, families and school community which make our school so great.
