Join us bright and early on Saturday, April 28th at 8 AM for the Ventana Vista Bobcat Bash and COLOR Dash! All students are invited to wear their white t-shirts and enjoy getting covered in color powder while traversing a course around the school grounds. The course will be approximately one mile long and will have three color stations. Post-run snacks will be provided at the finish line.

Parent Input for Class Placements in 2018-19

Each spring we gather together to place children into classes for the following school year. There are many things we take into consideration to create balanced classes including gender, learning styles and achievement, social/emotional needs and interpersonal dynamics. Another dimension to this process is parent input. If there is anything about your child's needs that you would like us to consider in this placement process, please let us know by emailing Avril Buick with the pertinent information that you would like to share. Please do not request a specific teacher. Class lists are made without a teacher assignment. Information regarding teacher placement will be sent to families in August.

Our Therapy Team Needs Old Tennis Balls

If you have any old tennis balls, our Physical Therapist and Occupational Therapist would be happy to take them off your hands. They don't mind if they are dirty or torn. They have an idea in mind and would appreciate the donations. Please bring to the front office if you'd like to donate.
