We celebrated Read Across America at VDS this Week. The students and staff were encouraged to read their favorite books and show their school spirit by dressing up each day during the week. We had numerous guest readers at the school read Dr. Seuss Books to the students in the library and classrooms. Some of the readers included Dr. Gomez, Manny the Movie Guy, Dr. Hernandez, and our Read With Me Volunteers to name a few. The staff also did a fantastic job providing snacks and goodies for each other in the staff lounge based on Dr. Seuss themes. A big thank you to Mrs. Reyes and the Read Across America Crew for making this such an enriching week for our students, staff, and community.
Our ASES Tennis Team participated in the Tennis Tournament at the Indian Wells Tennis Gardens on Saturday. They did an amazing job showcasing their skills and took home the Tennis Championship!
