Happy Valley on the Web


Jackson Hills

Excavation of phase 1 of Jackson Hills was first started in June of 2004. Home construction was started around April of 2005. The construction pace was furious and by mid May there were approx. 75 homes in various states of completion (Monterra is in the foreground).


About this time logging was started on phase 2 of the project to the east. This has continued into June and soon new roads will be constructed.

Happy Valley Hikers Receives Donation

The Happy Valley Hikers is a group of concerned citizens that work with the City's Public Works Department to help maintain the City's trails. The Hikers were recently the recipients of a winch and mounting system which will aid in trail upkeep. Warn Industries, headquartered in Clackamas, donated this equipment. The City would like to thank Karl Christensen and Gary Rubin of Warn Industries for their generous donation which will be a benefit to all those that hike in Happy Valley. Thank you!

Old Carver School Building Temporarily

Houses Charter School

Nestled on the east side of Clackamas is an independent school providing exemplary education to students from preschool up through eighth grade. Full Circle Countryside School (FCCS) is providing students from all over Clackamas County with an independent, non-religious, and uniquely challenging education. Housed in the Old Carver Elementary School building that is being used temporarily until their new quarters in Redland can be built, FCCS is a community which blends ‘old school' dynamics with a challenging curriculum and a respect for each child as an individual learner. Visitors to FCCS are captivated with the sounds of laughter and a sense that children feel safe and that they belong. Enthusiasm and a focus on learning permeate the educational environment. FCCS staff believes that every child can learn and will succeed if they are valued and acknowledged. Individual problem solving is seen as a way to help students increase self-esteem; mistakes or failures are viewed as natural happenings from which students learn. FCCS students emerge as competent, independent thinkers with a commitment to excellence. The school is located at 16077 SE Hwy 224 in Clackamas.
