A Message from The Principal
March 27, 2020
While I recognize how busy you must be, I hope this finds you well. Please know that the Valhalla
faculty is thinking of you and your children during this challenging time.
The staff are all continuing to provide you and your children with academic and leisure materials
that can be completed at home. Our intention is to ensure that students remain engaged and that
all activities serve to reinforce skills and content that are aligned with students’ goals.
Please know that the staff and I are available to support you as we are just an email away. Do not
hesitate to reach out to us for assistance of any kind. Sometimes a phone call or email to your
child is just the reminder he/she needs to remember that we will be back together soon and
enjoying learning together. You may also have some technology questions you need answered or
a moment to vent, and we are here for you.
We are aware that many of you are juggling working from home or perhaps you are an essential
New York employee who has to continue your work in the community. Now you are also trying to
support your children as they engage in remote learning. We appreciate your sharing of learning
moments and images as we are “all in this together." Please let us know what we can do to
Please DO NOT feel that your child must complete everything that has been sent home in the
student packets or all of the work in google classroom, as we understand circumstances vary at
home. We are available to assist you in pacing the expectation.
Take care of yourselves during this difficult period. You and your family are in our thoughts, and
we can't wait to see your children again soon.

Work Based Learning Program
The Valhalla Center's specialized Work Based Learning Curriculum parallels the New York State Curriculum. This program was designed and developed by the Valhalla Center's Work Based Learning Team. It incorporates the many tasks students need to acquire before they head out to work in the community. Our on site Work Based Learning Center consists of several work areas that provide a hands on learning experience. The tasks the students actively learn are functional duties needed to be performed and completed out in the work field. These work stations are departmentalized as each area focuses on a different task to learn. The Work Based Learning Center is staged to teach the skills needed at different community job sites such as: Party City, Modells, Staples and other various employment opportunities our program offers.

When you wake up in the morning, Pooh, what's the first thing you say to yourself?" Asked Piglet.
"What's for breakfast?" said Pooh.
"What do you say, Piglet?"
"I say, I wonder what's going to happen exciting today?" said Piglet.
Pooh nodded thoughtfully. "It's the same thing," he said.
"We need to encourage our kids to love to eat honest, nutritious, healthy food. Less fast food. Less junk food. And they need to see us eating healthy by example."
