Welcome to Valleywood Middle School

Excellence and Equity in Education

Dear Valleywood Families,

We would like to take a brief moment to welcome you all to the 2023-2024 school year. I hope you all enjoyed a wonderful and relaxing summer. I also hope you are able to enjoy a little more time with family prior to our first day on August 21st.

At Valleywood, we are excited to get back to a “normal” school year. We are planning to reincorporate many of the activities we could not participate in during the last few school years. Some of these are field trips, assemblies, guest speakers, volunteers, and many more fun and exciting activities. 

We look forward to seeing you at orientation and Open House. As a reminder, orientation and Open House dates are as follow:


August 8th for 6th grade students from 9am - 1pm

August 9th for all students from 9am - 1pm and 2pm - 6pm

August 14th is a make-up day for all students from 3pm - 6pm

Open House:

August 16th 6pm - 7:30pm

We hope to see you at these events in the next few weeks!

Please contact Valleywood’s main office at (616) 538-7670 with any questions.


J. Mathes & Jenin Shamali
