February 2017 brought heavy rain and wind storms to Aptos, CA. Valencia Elementary and its 500+ students were severely affected as the road leading to the school was destroyed. Due to safety concerns, the decision was made to close the school and re-locate the students to three separate locations: Mar Vista, Cabrillo College, and Aptos High School. Students at all 4 campuses have been negatively affected with no permanent classrooms and no dedicated outdoor space – it has been rough. With limited facilities and supplies at each location, both students and teachers have been doing their best to get through the remainder of the school year. Designer and Klub Nico brand founder, Kelley Lehner has experienced this tragedy firsthand as her daughter, Valentina, was in 4th grade at Valencia Elementary and had to relocate. The situation is continuing through the end of the school year and possibly beyond.
“The closing of Valencia Elementary has been very difficult for everyone. My heart goes out to the children, teachers, and parents who are doing their best during this challenging time. We are grateful to have the opportunity to use our Klub Nico 4th Anniversary Sale as a platform to raise money for much needed supplies for the children,” said Lehner.
Principal of Valencia Elementary, Caryn Lane says, “The relocation of our school has been challenging for staff as well as students and their families. Though we are extremely grateful to have alternative sites for our children to continue their learning, and are appreciative of the sacrifices made by others to provide us with three different homes away from home, we very much look forward to getting back to Valencia and being together as one unified school community. We are thankful for Klub Nico’s support and are excited to partner with such a wonderful local company in raising funds for our school. We look forward to a very successful anniversary sale event.”
At the sale, current Klub Nico Spring inventory will be discounted up to 30%, Fall booties discounted up to 40%, and returns, samples, and seconds will be marked down, up to 75% off. The brand is encouraging people to SHOP LOCAL and support Valencia Elementary!
