Message From The Assistant Principal

Mrs. Mataele

Dear Valiant Scholars and Parents:


Welcome to Valinda! Our goal, here at Valinda, is to provide our students with an engaging and rigorous educational program that sets the stage for their academic journey to excellence.  There are so many exciting and amazing programs that Valinda offers to our students such as:  Code to the Future, Spanish Dual Immersion, STEAM/Sea Perch, and First Lego League (Robotics). The faculty, staff, and administration is committed to supporting the “whole” student and their academic achievements.  Each are instrumental in guiding and shaping our students with integrating 21st century skills (i.e. collaboration, communication) essential for future success within their academic careers.   


This active participation of students and staff, alongside partnerships with parents and community organizations makes our school an environment that fosters emotional and academic support for all of our students’ educational lives.  This is also incorporated within the core of Valinda, as we adhere to the Valiant Code-  Be Kind, Work Hard, Be Safe, and Be Clean!


“Believe in yourself, aim high, work hard, dream big!”  We are here to support you Valiant Scholars!   I am excited to get to know all of you, and am humbled to be your Assistant Principal.  I look forward to an outstanding year of learning with you!     



Jennifer Mataele

Assistant Principal
