On Monday, the dress up theme is wear blue to support Make a Wish. Students will learn more about Wish Week in Advisory on Monday.

Spring Picture Day is this Wednesday, March 23rd. Our 6th and 7th grade students will take spring pictures, and 8th grade students will take promotion pictures with a cap and gown. Picture order forms will be handed out to students on Monday, and the picture order link is on our school website.

This Monday, March 21st at 9:30 am all 8th graders will have a high school transition presentation led by our counselors. The presentation will be on Zoom, and all parents are invited to join too. Please use the Zoom meeting link on our school website to join.

Parents, please do not drop off or pick up your students in our staff parking lot on the corner of Vista Village Drive and Civic Center Drive. This is not a safe or supervised area for student drop off, please use the supervised Pick-Up and Drop-Off area on Eucalyptus Avenue near our field. Thank you.

Lastly, the VMMS Boys and Girls Club soccer teams are looking for coaches. If you or someone you know are interested in coaching our Viper soccer team, please contact Patrick Wisdom at ​​Patrick@bgcvista.com, or contact us directly at the school.
