PARENT TIME POLICY AT SCHOOL BOARD MEETINGS:
The Board of the Wyoming Valley Seventh-Day Adventist Elementary School recognizes the importance of parental involvement in the success of our students and school. With this in mind, we wish to thank the parents for their past and future participation in School Board Meetings, generally held on the first Monday of the month.
In order to allow the appropriate amount of time for parents to address the board, we request parents notify the board as far in advance as possible of any concerns that may require the Board's attention. Time will be made available for all parents, with preference being given to those having requested an appointment in advance.
As a matter of policy, School Board meetings are open to all parents of enrolled students. If you desire to simply sit in on a meeting, no appointment is necessary! There are times however, when the board may need to call an "Executive Session", at which time all visitors will be temporarily excused. When discussion of sensitive information such as personnel issues and student accounts is concluded, the meeting will be opened to visitors again.
We wish to thank you for your time, support and cooperation as we attempt to simultaneously meet the needs of you, the parent, as well as the administrative duties of the board.

It’s not easy growing up these days. Young people face challenges, pressures and temptations unimaginable just a few years ago. In a world of turmoil and constant change, parents increasingly look to Adventist education to offer their children the tools they need to survive and succeed in this life—and for eternity. Adventist education has always placed a premium on academic quality, and the data speaks for itself:
An ongoing study of 30,000 students in Adventist schools found our students achieve a higher level of academic success than the national average. The CognitiveGenesis study shows impressive statistics. The research found children in U.S. Adventist schools achieved at half a grade higher than the national average and beyond even their own predicted ability. An earlier study, ValueGenesis shows children in Adventist schools also make better moral decisions. Click Here
