Date: Friday September 8 (Rain date will be on September 15, 2023.)
Time: 10:00 a.m.

Valley R-6 Elementary would like to cordially invite our grandparents to participate in our annual grandparent parade! Our students and staff will line up along our front sidewalk to cheer, wave, and celebrate you as you drive through. We will have staff, signs, and cones to help direct traffic. We ask that you drive through slowly so you can enjoy this special occasion we are hosting to honor you. Please do not get out of your vehicle. We will allow a quick stop so you can grab a picture with your grandchild, but we ask that you stay inside your vehicle to keep things moving at a safe pace. Please feel free to decorate your vehicle if you like. You can make posters, have noise makers, etc. to help celebrate! We look forward to seeing you at the parade!

*Please drive slowly, and stay in your vehicle.*

Welcome New Faculty and Staff

Welcome to the Valley of the Vikings

Welcome to Valley R-VI School District, home of the Vikings! Situated in historic Caledonia, Missouri, at the intersection of state highways 21 and C, eleven miles south of Potosi and just north of Elephant Rocks State Park, we are dedicated to preparing our students for the challenges they will face tomorrow.

We invite you to browse through our new website to learn more about our district and how we’re preparing our students in rural, eastern Missouri. Of special note are our events pages, which are dedicated to keeping you informed about everything going on in Viking territory. We look forward to seeing you soon!

It is also a place with a bright future. We have dedicated educators, staff, and community members that truly believe in our mission of “Preparing students today for the challenges of tomorrow.”

I hope you find our website helpful. If we can assist you in any way, feel free to contact us. As we continue to move forward, we will work diligently to strive for excellence in all that we do here at Valley. We will always keep in the forefront that we have the potential to make a lasting, positive impact on the life of a child.
