The Panther Pride

October 12, 2021

Hello Panther Community!

Tuesday, October 12th marks the beginning of 2nd Quarter. At the middle school level, students have the opportunity for a fresh start with each quarter with the exception of Integrated Math 1. On School Loop, you will see grades reset and any missing assignments from 1st Quarter are no longer accepted and grades will be mailed home on October 15th.

Does your student need extra help after school with homework? Every Monday, Tuesday and Thursday from 3:30 - 4:30, the Homework Club is there to help! Your student can get homework help from credentialed teachers in the library. The Homework Club works on a drop in basis, students must check in and check out if they leave before 4:30.

Vacaville PAL is open for enrollment! PAL is based on the conviction that young people - if they are reached early enough - can develop strong positive attitudes towards police officers in their journey through life toward the goal of maturity and good citizenship. Students can participate in fun activities such as movie nights, attend leadership opportunities such as the recent Teen Summit and so much more! Want to learn more about PAL? Click the link below!

Together, let’s make the MIDDLE matter,

Vacaville PAL Program

The PAL program brings youth under the supervision and positive influence of Vacaville Police Department staff and expands public awareness about the role of a police officer and the reinforcement of the responsible values and attitudes.

Vacaville Christmas Wish 2021

Vacaville Christmas Wish began 38 years ago through the efforts of the Children’s Network and social workers at Solano County’s Children’s Shelter. The goal of the program is to grant Vacaville’s low-income children a special wish at Christmas time.
