Enjoy your time off, the sunshine and snow and where ever you might go! And maybe even catch up on some school work. Mid-Winter Break is next week and we will see everyone again February 29th!
The first day of school for the 2016-2017 VSSA academic year is Thursday, August 18, 2016. There have been some questions regarding this and breaks, and we are working on firming up details for the full calendar to be released as early as we can in March. 

Parent Teacher Conferences March 2nd  
PTC's are the Wednesday after Mid-Winter Break on March 2nd after school. and are by request and are not mandatory. Holly Beavers 
will be contacting parents directly if teachers request a conference. If a parent(s) would like to meet with a specific teacher(s) please contact Holly.  

If this day does not work in your schedule, please contact the teacher(s) directly to set up another meeting time. 

Summer will be here before we know it and 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.
