PRINCIPAL'S POINTS

Another successful week at VAHS. Please do your best to be here on September 14th from 6 - 8pm for Meet the Teacher. We will have students demonstrating google classroom, and other important announcements from our counselor, Mrs. Madison, during the night.


I genuinely enjoy seeing our students engaged in meaningful learning in the classrooms, as well as being involved in so many extra-curricular activities. I truly believe that is what makes VAHS a special place.


I hope everyone has a long restful weekend!
