Here is a link to our district-wide calendar for the year.
Arrival and Dismissal
During arrival--thank you to everyone who is pulling as far forward as you can and encouraging your children to be ready with their things to open the door and get out when the car comes to a stop. This helps us run most efficiently. We don't have enough adults to open all of the car doors. Your children can get out when you have safely come to a stop.
During dismissal-thank you for paying attention to which zone you should pick up your child in. Mrs. Manning shows you with her fingers which zone you will go to to meet your child.
Dismissal works like the airport--the zone number you are given is like the "airline" you are going to to pick up your child. Your "passenger" will meet you there. Drive on the left side to get to your airline. Pull over to the right when you arrive at your zone. Don't leave your airline zone or your passenger won't know where to find you. Once your passenger is loaded, pull out to the left and be on your way. Hope that analogy helps!
Communication with Teachers
Check out our student handbook HERE if you'd ever like more information about our school, such as attendance procedures, dress code, celebrations, homework, student conduct, and more!
Please be Responsible
Also, continue to have your students ready with their things so they can exit the car in the morning quickly and safely. This is being a responsible Bobcat.
Message from our FFO
We hope everyone is having a great first week of school and thank you to everyone who stopped by the FFO tables at Meet the Teacher last week.
If you weren’t able to buy up your spirit wear shirts or stickers, click on the link below to place your order - we still have lots of sizes in stock and will be ordering more! Our first Spirit Wear day is THIS Friday!
Also, did you know that the FFO pays for classroom field trips and gives each teacher a stipend to spend in their classrooms? These two items alone add up to over $16,000 of support that the FFO gives to teachers and classrooms every year!
Donate to the FFO via Bobcat Bucks today to help fund these classroom enrichments and all of the fun community events at Ventana Vista. Each donation by August 15 will be entered into a raffle to win one of three prizes and all donations of $100 will receive a free Ventana Vista 4”x4” magnet.
The first FFO meeting is next Thursday, August 18 @ 8:15 am
Bagels and coffee provided… see you there!
