Scholastic Book Fair THANKS!
We would like to extend a special thanks to the following groups for supporting our book fair and our students:
- Our PTSA who purchased teacher-selected books for all of our classroom libraries!
- Our many families who purchased additional teacher-selected books and who ensured that a teacher-nominated student from every class got a book to take home!
The research is clear. Students with exposure to books at school and at home, and who read every day, perform better academically and experience greater success. Together, we can give our students that advantage!
Scholastic Book Fair Online Shopping is OPEN!
SHINE T-shirt Sales
The VUSD After-hours Academic Assistance (AAA) program is available to all VUSD students grades K-12 at no charge, four evenings a week. Homework assistance is lead by certificated VUSD teachers. For more information and to access the tutoring Zoom links, visit: www.vusd.org/aaa.
Simple Machines Create an Opportunity to Share
Did you know there are six types of simple machines? Once you're familiar with them, you'll see their influence everywhere! Our Gr 7/8 students created models and descriptions of these simple machines and shared them with our Gr K-2 Science classes.
Thank you PTSA!
Thanks to our PTSA who purchased teacher-selected books from our Scholastic Book Fair for classrooms. Here, Ms. Olmos is adding up the purchase!
Our afterschool HEART program put on a fabulous Friendsgiving dinner! The buffet featured comfort food straight from the Thanksgiving table.
