A letter from Valley Catholic Elementary School Principal Dr. Yvonne Ayesiga


Dear VCES Families,

Welcome back to school. I am excited to step into my new role as elementary school principal and I hope you have had a wonderful and restful summer. All the staff and I cannot wait to hear about the fun adventures our students have had this summer.

The staff has been hard at work getting ready for the new school year. They have completed in-service training, worked on new bulletin board designs, made lesson plans and even designed new cool name tags for the students. The teachers had a great first week getting to know their students and sharing class expectations for the year. We are blessed with an outstanding teaching staff, and their deep commitment to their students is evident in everything they do.

It was a joy meeting so many families at the ice cream social at the end of August. Thank you to the staff, the Valor committee, the SSMO Foundation staff, and all the many volunteers that helped make this treasured annual tradition a success.

Again, I feel blessed and honored to serve as principal, alongside many talented and dedicated colleagues who work hard every day to carry forward the mission of the Sisters through prayer, love, and education of our students. I am looking forward to partnering with the staff, our families, and the Sisters as we support our children to learn, discover wonderful skills, and live out our faith.

Here is to a wonderful 2023-24 school year.


Dr. Yvonne Ayesiga
