ALT ALERT!

Venture Alternative Education School

Salutations!

Dear Del Amigo, Virtual Academy and Venture Elementary Independent Study Families,


It is great to finally be in September, with autumn around the corner. We have had so many families come by to turn in their assignments and pick up materials. It is great seeing so many smiling faces brightening up the place.


We have a couple of events coming that we don’t want you to miss.


On Wednesday, September 22nd and Thursday, September 23rd we will be having picture day at Venture school from 3pm to 7pm. In a week or two you will be sent a link to book your students' appointment.


Additionally, in all elementary and middle school classes throughout the district, conference week will be held October 11th through the 15th. Classes will be in session on a minimum day schedule. That means that students will be in school from 8:45AM to 12:45PM Elementary, and 8:30-12:30 Middle School that entire week. Teachers will reach out to families to schedule individual meeting times during the afternoons.



Here is to a wonderful week of learning,

Rose Bright

Reminders!

Master Agreements

If you did not received it please contact our Registrar Kelly Estes at kestes@srvusd.net.


All families enrolled AFTER 8/18 will be receiving their master agreement next week.



Social Media

We ask for at least one parent in the home and the student (if age appropriate) to follow us on social media so you are always aware of what is happening at school!


It doesn't matter which platform below you choose as they both have the same information:
