“New Kid” Performance by University of Alaska Students

The Girdwood K-8 School had the University of Alaska come down to Girdwood to present a play that addresses acceptance, anti-bullying, immigration, racism, tolerance, conflict resolution, and social emotional learning. FVCS is proud to be a co-fund this event along with the Girdwood K-8 School and the Girdwood School PTA.  Your donations help us to sponsor these important enriching events for our local school and youth. Thank you!

Donor Spotlight: The Libby Group

We want to say a big “Thank You” to our friends at The Libby Group who came down to Girdwood to support us with a donation and a friendly game of dodge ball with 20 middle-schoolers!  The Libby Group is a dental office in Anchorage who believes in community outreach in support of healthy and active lifestyles. We are thrilled they chose Four Valleys Community School to support through a cash donation, and their contribution will be used to make some much needed equipment purchases for  youth programs!

An additional “Thank You” to Alex at Spoonline and Spike at Chair 5 for donating some lovely finger foods and pizza for our donor event. We really appreciate the local support we receive from engaged businesses like theirs!

Donor Spotlight: Alyeska Resort

For our first ever Donor Spotlight, we want to highlight local business the Alyeska Resort. For years the Alyeska Resort has been hosting Four Valleys Community School each fall for our Ski & Sports Swap. We are grateful for the on-going support that allows us to make a difference in Girdwood, Bird, Indian and Portage, one community education program at a time.

In addition to hosting the Ski & Sports Swap Alyeska Resort allows FVCS to teach local kids to swim in their swimming pool, sell our Alyeska Snow Classic tickets each spring at the Sitzmark and other Resort locations, hike and use Resort trails for our summer adventure camps, and was a sponsor of our Alyeska Junior Ski Patrol program for several years. We thank you for investing in community education, and laying a foundation of support that allows us to provide classes, events, programs and scholarships for our local community.
