We hosted our Spring Festival for the VDS community which was filled with fun activities and great food for the whole family.
We had some fun lunchtime activities for the different grade levels that were infused with positive affirmations about the upcoming assessments.
On Friday, we hosted various activities to Kick Off CAASPP Testing at VDS. During our Friday morning announcements in the quad, we had the UCLA Cheerleaders and Bruin Mascots perform some cheers for the students and speak to them about the importance of performing their best so that they have the opportunity to go to college.
We had an outstanding turnout for our Winter Program on December 19. The students showcased their holiday spirit by performing numerous routines throughout the evening. There were excellent choral performances by the students in every grade levels and the ASES students provided a memorable recital as well. It was great seeing so many members of the VDS community in attendance to watch the show and enjoy the delicious food items. We would like to thank all of the VDS staff for helping to make this such an unforgettable evening!
The VDS Spelling Bee was held on December 11 for select 4th, 5th and 6th grade students. Twenty-four (24) students from these grade levels demonstrated their spelling prowess by correctly spelling challenging words. We would like to congratulate winner Adrian Yamanaka and runner up Israylen Morfin. Adrian will represent VDS at the District Spelling Bee in January and we wish him the best of luck during the next phase of this competition.
