    Friday, November 30th- Mrs. Nichols’s last day!  I will be retiring. I have so enjoyed my time here at Valdese Elementary.  I have been blessed to be an educator to so many wonderful students over my 29.75 years of teaching!  I will truly miss all of my students. I am leaving my students in excellent hands as Mrs. Holly Russ will be the new librarian!  Her first day will be Monday, December 3rd. We are fortunate to have her join our Valdese Tiger Family! 💛🖤🐯
