Valley Vista Elementary Named 2016 Hall of Fame School
Valley Vista Elementary Named 2016 Hall of Fame School The Ohio Association of Elementary School Administrators (OAESA) announced that Valley Vista Elementary in the North Royalton School District has been selected as a 2016 Hall of Fame School. Principal Jeff Hill and his staff will be presented with the award, including $1,000 to be used at the principal’s discretion. OAESA will recognize seven winners of the Hall of Fame Award during an Awards Luncheon to be held June 17, 2016, at the Hilton Columbus at Easton.

“We are so proud of being recognized by the OAESA as a Hall of Fame school,” said Jeff Hill, Principal, Valley Vista Elementary. “Our committee did a great job of illustrating all the wonderful things that happen both in and out of our building on an annual basis. This award is a representation of all the hard work and dedication our students, staff, PTA and community have given towards positive growth and development. Our staff continues to do a wonderful job of working collaboratively to help meet the needs of all our students and community through curriculum, academics, service projects and building initiatives. Collaboration has always been an important goal of our building leadership team, our grade-level teams and our teacher-based teams. The key to successful collaboration comes through our teachers working well together and having focused conversations in regards to curriculum, student needs and student achievement.”

The Hall of Fame School Award recognizes schools that engage faculty, students and the community to provide a quality school experience. The school staff submitted an extensive application documenting the effectiveness of their educational program in several areas.

Hall of Fame Schools were chosen by two committees of OAESA members; one of which read and scored the applications and the other that conducted on-site evaluations of qualifying schools. Committee members wrote that, “Valley Vista Elementary is a welcoming school, wherein student engagement and leadership, and community involvement and support are emphasized throughout all facets of the school community. Valley Vista’s school-wide positive behavior supports initiative encourages students to be Respectful, Responsible, and Ready to Learn, and promotes a climate and culture of school spirit and loyalty which is clearly evident amongst all members of the school community.”

Located in Columbus, the Ohio Association of Elementary School Administrators serves Ohio’s pre-K, elementary, middle level, and central office administrators by providing professional development, legal consultation, professional publications and networking opportunities.
