Principal's Monthly Message

November 2017

Dear Parents and Guardians,

Thank you all for your continued partnership in your student’s education! We have had great turnouts for our Kinder and First Grade Parent Workshops and a tremendous crowd for our Fall Festival. During November, we will have various informative and exciting activities at the school that you will be able to participate in as well.

One of the greatest determinants of student success is parental involvement. That is why the entire VDS staff would like to invite you to attend our parent teacher conferences on November 15 and 16. This will give you an opportunity to discover your student’s strengths and techniques for strengthening their academic skills. Be sure to ask your student’s teacher what you can do to enhance your student’s proficiencies and help prepare them for college and career readiness. We had tremendous turnouts at our conferences last year, where over 85% of our parents attended, and we hope to exceed that number this year.

I appreciate everyone’s cooperation as the solar project in the parking lot is being completed. The expected completion date is the end of December. Please remember to drive slowly on Education Way and follow the instructions of the VDS staff as we try to keep the traffic flowing as smoothly and quickly as possible. Thank you in advance for your cooperation.
