message from the superintendent:

On behalf of the school board, administration, faculty, staff, and students, I want to welcome you to the Happy Valley Union Elementary School District. We feel privileged to serve the children and families of our community.
I am honored to be the Superintendent of the Happy Valley Union Elementary School District, and to partner with our students, educators, families, and community to ensure we meet the district’s mission: Happy Valley Union Elementary School District will equip our students to become lifelong learners in a changing society so that they can adapt and grow as citizens of the world. 

In our school district, we take pride in the small family atmosphere we provide for our students. Our district is committed to bringing out the best in each and every child and recognizes that strong schools are the foundation of a strong community. 
In the Happy Valley Union Elementary School District, you will find a school community - teachers, students, administrators, board members, and volunteers - who have a great deal of pride in their schools. The cornerstone of our success is working together with community partners and families at our side, to ensure each student is inspired to reach their full potential. 

My vision for the Happy Valley Union Elementary School District is to be a student-centered, highly-effective educational environment where everyone focuses on excellence and where respect, fairness, transparency, confidentiality, and shared governance are a part of every aspect of the organization.
If you want to discuss any aspect of our school district or its programs or if you want to discuss your child’s educational needs, please contact me or Gina Murphy, Principal, at HVP.
We look forward to working with you.

Shelly Craig, Superintendent
