IT IS TEACHER APPRECIATION WEEK!

We feel so fortunate to have a staff that cares so much about kids! Take a moment to let your favorite teacher(s) know you appreciate them!

REGISTRATION PACKETS for 2021-22

Don’t forget to return your registration packet ASAP (the deadline was Friday) if you plan on attending Venture next fall. Secondary students need to fill out BOTH the reg packet and the course selection form.


Many of you are worried that the last page of the packet is asking for your annual update to be completed, unfortunately the annual update link will not be available for parents to make changes/updates until June 14th. Besides that hiccup please submit the rest of your packet to the dropbox outside of Ventures front door.


If your family is not going to return to Venture, please contact Kelly Estes, Registrar.


Thank you,

Dennice Barnes, Office Manager
