Resources Yearbook


Today: 8/20/17


Valley is proud of its cultural and ethnic diversity.  Among our student body, you will find descendents of Albuquerque’s founding fathers, as well as those who have recently arrived in the United States.  There are several neighborhoods within our attendance area–Los Duranes, Los Griegos, Los Anayas, and Los Chaves–which are named for families whose ancestors settled here over 300 years ago.  Streets bearing their names are dotted throughout the North Valley.  Their descendents presently represent Valley High students and staff.

A few libraries still have some available for free, only 1 pair per library patron.  Mama's Rocks & Minerals (800 20th Street) has just received a new shipment.  The cost is $1.99 / pair. They are also available at many hardware stores & at Walmart usually for $1.00 to $2.00.  Check for the safety rating on the glasses.    It is believed that Galileo’s blindness was due to looking at the sun.  Protect your eyes.  Or watch the eclipse on-line or indirectly with a pinhole device.
