Teacher of the Month

Thank you to all of the students who nominated a teacher for the February Teacher of the month. We will be awarding the February Teacher of the month on Monday at the all school meeting. Our teachers of the month are being awarded a $100 gift certificate from the PTA!

We are asking all students to  continue to acknowledge the hard work and dedication of the amazing teachers at VSSA! From now, through the end of the school year, we are asking students to nominate a teacher that they think has gone above and beyond for them, or one of their peers. There will be nomination forms and a box in the lobby at VSSA. If you would like to nominate a teacher, please fill out the form in its entirety and place it in the box for consideration.  The nominations need to be received by the 20th of each month. ​

State Standardized Tests
State Standardized Tests are on their way to VSSA and will be administered March XX through April XX.  These exams, specifically, are the CMAS & PARCC Exams.  Questions, concerns, or to opt out please email Tom Gibson.

Summer Reading Skills and Speed Reading Program

Online this summer for preschool through high school students. Sponsored by Regis University. Tuition varies by program level and
ask about family discounts.

In these effective and enjoyable programs, your student will improve comprehension in both fiction and non-fiction, and will learn to read twice as fast. Students in these programs learn the best way to read textbooks, take notes, and study for tests.  Your student will complete homework more quickly, get better grades and enjoy reading more. Great program to help students be successful in middle, high 
school and college!! For more information or to register call 1800-964-9974
