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.

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.
