Message from our Student Council

Hello VVE Families,


Thank you for the overwhelming support in the Student Council Toy Drive. There will be so many children that will be receiving something special this holiday season, and it is all thanks to you! It has been a great opportunity to teach compassion (which is our focus for the month) and helping our communities. We wish you a happy holiday season and a happy new year!


Kind regards,

VVE Student Council

Flu Season is Upon Us

If your child has a fever please do not send them back to school until they have been fever free for 24 hours. We have had several reported cases of the flu between students and staff, and we are trying to keep everybody healthy, especially at this time of year.


Thank you for your cooperation.

No School

School will be closed for 2 weeks during the winter break, beginning Monday, December 23rd.


School will resume on Monday, January 6, 2020.

Get Ready for Our Upcoming Science Fair

This year's Ventana Vista Science Fair will be held February 17th and 18th, 2020.


For consideration:


  • www.sarsef.org provides excellent guidelines for project board design, rules and regulations, and parental involvement. This can be found under both the Parents and School links at the top of the webpage.
  • 20 projects from the VV science fair will be chosen to go to the SARSEF regional competition (entry fee paid) at the TCC March 11 - 14, 2020. 2 projects from each grade K-5 and then 8 additional 'at large' selections.
  • Project idea forms (attached) should be turned into the office before winter break. Please take time to think of a topic/project that is of interest or importance to you. Do not google 'science fair projects' and do one of those. We can tell :). Here is a link to the form also: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1kc4U_DrmD3YM7Lsu_lR6t0fdk925wZUb/view?usp=sharing
  • Students may work individually or as a team of 2-3 (dependent on teacher requirements).
  • Tuesday Feb 18th: Science Fair and Robotics open house night at Ventana Vista.
  • Projects need to be turned in by Friday, Feb 14th. Judging will take place Monday Feb, 17th.


  • I need help judging projects. Please volunteer. No experience is needed. If you are interested or would like more information contact me Ray Runyon at jrayrunyon@gmail.com.
