Principal’s Message
Stay Connected!
We do a lot of things to connect with families throughout the year. From school-wide and classroom events during and outside of the school day to maintaining websites and sending out newsletters, we know that a strong home-school connection is critical to students’ academic success. NEW for 2014, we are delving further into the social media scene! We have had a presence on Facebook for a while, and are now looking to form a team of FAMILY BLOGGERS. This is something that parents may do themselves and/or in collaboration with their child(ren). Share events, stories, happenings, or exciting details about our school with the local and global community! See the attached flyer for more details.  ALSO…you are cordially invited to
follow me on Twitter @VVBobcat
! My plan is to “tweet” daily as a way to share some of the highlights that take place throughout the school day.
