Kindly RSVP to with the coffee you plan to attend by the day before it so SSCV has sufficient refreshments and seating on hand.

First Day of School and the August Wilderness Trip!

REMINDER: 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!
