Very important! All students have summer assignments that must be completed prior to the first day of school. Please open this document and read it thoroughly. If you have any questions, please refer to the teacher's directly, their information is in the document. Thank you!



Looking to take an online class this summer? 

If you are taking a summer school course please email Charlene Whitney & Holly Beavers so that students are enrolled in the correct courses for August.

Mr. Martin and Ms. Krone will be running a summer program in the Think Tank for those that sign up for online classes and are looking for extra support/structure. The program will run 3 days/week with an open door schedule (10am-4pm) to accommodate different athletic programs’ training schedules. Dates, cost, Ms. Whitney’s recommendations, and more here

What are you doing this summer?!
It's time to determine what your schedule will allow and how you can use this break to build your resume and engage your passions. Are you interested in a summer job? Taking a college class?  focusing on ACT/SAT prep? Spending time on a college campus at a pre-collegiate program? Participating in community service or an internship? Take a look at the attached document that will provide a glimpse of some of these options.  Contact your counselor, Charlene Whitney to discuss more.



If you did not receive your yearbook yesterday at distribution, you can come in over the summer and get one. They are the office on the back counter top.



First Day of School and the August Wilderness Trip!

VSSA will kick-off the 2016-2017 school year in August with our second annual all-school camping trip at SOAR (Spirit of Adventure Ranch) near Sweetwater, Colorado. The trip will occur the on the first two days of school: Thursday, August 18th and 
Friday August 19th. Mandatory attendance is expected on this trip.

Once again, each class will participate in adventures both on and off the premises and camp
ing in tipis around the property. Stay tuned for the individual class activities in the an upcoming June newsletter. 

An abundance of strong adult leadership is a key component in ensuring the success of our trip. We welcome your volunteer time in helping with class activities and duties around camp.  Please email Katie MacFarlane to volunteer, or with any questions you may have. Thank you!
