Enrichment Opportunity!

Your child can reduce anxiety, improve cognitive ability, and flex their creativity by learning and playing a musical instrument. And guess what? We now have instruments available to loan out!

Currently, dozens of flutes and bass flutes are prepped and ready to go. If you’re willing to spend a couple bucks on your own reeds or mouthpieces, we have clarinets and an array of brass instruments as well.

We’re incredibly lucky to be living in a time when music lessons can still happen even when meeting in person isn’t always safe or possible. The Kushins and Art and Soul Music Studio has generously offered private lessons at a discount for VCS students or you choose self-teaching from YouTube videos. Either way, with motivation, seriousness and dedication you can learn a new instrument!

Parents of students who accept a loaned instrument must sign a contract in which they agree: to return the instrument in the same condition in which it was loaned out, and to be responsible for the cost of repairing or replacing the instrument if it is damaged or destroyed during the loan period. 

Email Emma at erobbins@villagecharterschool.com to reserve an instrument BEFORE you come in. You'll then be able to pick it up from the VCS office.

 

Dia de los Muertos Recording and VCS Website update

We are working hard to update our website so it is a better resource for the community to learn about our school. We are adding a Student Work tab to showcase the work our students are doing during DL. You can also find updates about coming events, copies of our weekly bulletin, etc.

The recording of our Dia de los Muertos celebration is now available.

Food Assistance

Families needing food assistance can find a distribution site by a number of avenues provided by Redwood Empire Food Bank and SoCo Emergency.

The most complete resource is getfood.refb.org for those with internet access. The search tool allows you to enter an address and find all closest to furthest from you food distributions available by day & time as well as food distribution type with descriptions of each.

For those without internet access, the TEXT/COMIDA tool is a great resource for food available today. https://www.sonomacity.org/free-local-food-is-one-text-away/

Another good link is through SoCo Emergency

School Office

The VCS office is now located in room 30. This is the first room in the line as you come up the ramp or steps. Twelve years ago Rebecca and I shared our space in an 8x10 shed that wouldn't take up a quarter of the new space. We have had our eye on this room from day one and are so happy to finally be in it.
