New Opportunities for Students!

Three VOS Students Won Honors on the National Spanish Exam Last Semester

5 hours of Community Service Each Semester

Congratulations to all our students last year on completing their 5 hours of mandatory community service both semesters. We are so proud of you! Last year was our first year to have this requirement. All students showed us that they were willing and able to complete the challenge! Good luck to students this year with finding meaningful, fun service work. Remember that our school website has the Verification Form, a list of community service project ideas, and a list of Petaluma non-profits.
