Teacher Appreciation Week at VCS

Hello, Village Families! 

It is time to say “Thank You” to the exceptional Village Charter School teachers.   

The PA and the Board are planning several activities for the teachers next week and we need your support. We are not posting all the activities to keep some of them a surprise.  

·  Letters, poems, drawings.  So, what a better moment to shower them with appreciation letters, poems, drawings.  These appreciations and artwork can come from kids AND parents! We are sure your words of appreciation will make our teachers very happy, and will encourage them to continue making a difference in our child’s life.

·  Please encourage your kid(s) to bring their appreciation letters on the day they are in school and personally hand them to their teachers.

·  Lunch for the teachers and extended staff from a local business - VCS families interested in donating some money to help cover the costs of the lunch can hand a check or cash to Rebecca at drop off.

Please note below the name(s) of teachers and additional staff members that you might want to write an appreciation note for.

Yes, the 2020/2021 VCS Yearbook still needs photos!

We're still accepting photos through May! Do you have a picture of the first day of Zoom school? What about the first day of In Person school? Show us pets joining in on distance learning, screenshots of virtual classes and festivals, artworks and culinary creations, remote study spaces, hobbies, homework, everything! 

Email all of your VCS 2020/2021 photos to erobbins@villagecharterschool.com. Please include the name(s) of students pictured and additional caption information if needed. 

Have you ordered your yearbook yet?

Place your order by the end of May! This year's beautiful student-made yearbook features doodles drawn by hand from students in every class.
(If your child hasn't provided any doodles yet, there's still time! Have them use pen on plain white paper, take a photo and send it to Emma.) 
The standard yearbook costs just $20 (hardcover upgrade available for an additional $7) and includes two free customizable pages for your child to fill with their favorite memories. For each yearbook purchased, a tree is planted in our school's name.

Tick Checks!

This is proving to be a bad tick season! With all the time we are spending outside and in the garden, we encourage you to do tick checks after your child’s in-person days.

 

Student and Family COVID-19 Vaccine Clinics May 8 and 12

Two COVID-19 vaccine clinics for Sonoma County students age 16 and older, as well as their families, will be offered on Saturday, May 8 at Elsie Allen High School and Wednesday, May 12 Sonoma Valley High School.

The clinics are the result of a partnership between Sonoma County Office of Education (SCOE), Safeway, Sonoma County Department of Health Services, and Sonoma County school districts that have offered to host clinics. They were developed in response to a need identified by SCDHS to provide more opportunities for the youth of Sonoma County to be vaccinated.

These clinics are open to all Sonoma County students age 16+ and their families.

Can you help a VCS Family in need?

Dear Friends and Family, 

As many of you know, our dear cabin on Channel Drive suffered a devastating structure fire on Tuesday.  The house sustained catastrophic damage.  We are safe and well at a friend's house in Sebastopol. All of our animals are safe and well.  We are surrounded by many offers of love, care and support. Our immediate needs are attended to.  The cause of the fire is still under investigation.  Preliminary evidence points to an electrical malfunction in the kitchen.  We'll know more soon.  

Our main need right now is to secure a rental house.  We hope to find a place to live for the next 12 months or more.  Specifically, we are seeking a pet-friendly, kid-friendly, three-bedroom house that is not too far away from Channel Drive and our kids' school (Piner & Fulton).  People say it may be a good idea to stay close to our old neighborhood.  We are open, but not limited to that idea.  Santa Rosa or Sebastopol would be preferred.  Please let us know if you have any leads.  Thanks for cc'ing both Nick and Meg in your response. Megmariehamill@gmail.com and nicksimmonsmusic@gmail.com

Nick, Meg, Ava & Leo
