Craft Fair

Our Annual Village Craft Fair is
WEDNESDAY, December 12th from
4:00 pm to 6:00 pm! 

We hope everyone will be able to join us for this special evening.

The children will have an opportunity to make gifts for friends and family (or themselves) in different crafting stations sprinkled among the classrooms.  We'll have a chance to make photo frames (with photos taken on-site OR bring in a favorite), snow globes, wooden succulent planters, gnomes, glass ornament globes, and more.

Please email (subject line: Craft Fair) if you'd like to help run one station or if you have any questions.

Order Yearbooks!

Price: $20.00

Thank you Meg, Nick and Mia for your extra support in and around the classroom!
In deep appreciation,

Coco! I am so thankful that you joined our community this year and am appreciative of what you bring to our school. Your effort and amazing work ethic are inspiring. Thank you for the care and concern you show to all our students and staff. We are so fortunate to know you as well as get to grow with you!  ~Ashley!

School back in session on Wednesday, November 14th

Dear VCS Families and Staff,

Based on  discussion with the WUSD Superintendent and the health department, VCS will be open tomorrow, Wednesday, 11/14. According to several sources of data, the AQI is projected to improve, though it is anticipated that we will continue to experience poor air quality through the weekend. We will open tomorrow with indoor policies in place and air filters on in each room. There will be no morning circle as scheduled and students arriving early are to go straight to the extended care room. If you feel it is best to keep your child(ren) home for additional days, please do not hesitate to contact the school for Independent Study. Masks are encouraged, especially for those with asthma or other respiratory conditions.

Of course, if significant changes happen overnight we will monitor and make changes if necessary.

We ask that for the remainder of this week after school extended care only be used by those truly needing this service.

Again, thank you for your patience and flexibility as we wade through the different needs of all of our families during this difficult time.

Rebecca Ivanoff, Director

November 13, 2018 - No School

Dear VCS Families,

Keeping the health and safety of our children and staff in mind, VCS will be closed tomorrow, Tuesday, 11/13. I have been following the air quality and weather reports closely this weekend. It was my hope that we would be able to resume school as planned, however, the current air quality continues to fluctuate between unhealthy and very unhealthy in the Santa Rosa area.
Please keep an eye out for emails regarding Wednesday, 11/14.  Once school resumes, we will run air filters in all rooms and outdoor access will be limited if the air continues to be in the unhealthy range.

Thank you for your patience and understanding.
