Greetings Venture School Families,
It’s hard to believe that we are already completing the fourth week of school at Venture! It’s great to see all of our students on campus – returning students and newcomers alike. There are many opportunities for Venture School students to become involved in our school community. We encourage you to take advantage of our small group classes, to join a club, or just to build time in your day to study at Venture. Please work with your teachers to create a schedule that allows you to make your time at Venture as productive as possible. For most students, devising a morning or afternoon block for class time, assessments, participation in small group classes, and study seems to work best.
Looking towards the end of September and the month of October, we have important announcements to pass on. Please see the information below and bookmark them on your calendar!
FALL INTERSESSION WEEK
VENTURE SCHOOL will be closed from September 29th through October 3rd for the Fall Intersession Week. Since Venture School has a rolling enrollment (new students come to Venture throughout the school year), the Intersession week allows new and current students the flexibility to catch-up with or accelerate their school work and overall studies.
VENTURE TWITTER PAGE
Venture School has joined the Twitter world! Please follow us @VenturePride for important updates, comments and deadlines.
Our Back-to-School Night is scheduled for the evening of Wednesday, September 17, 2014 from 6:30 – 8:00. We look forward to your participation. The more information you have regarding your student’s classes, teachers, assignments, and assessments, the more likely you can help your student be successful in school. Back-to-School Night offers a rare opportunity to peer into the window of your student’s school life at Venture. Please don’t miss this chance to meet your student’s teacher.
It is always easier to put a face with a name, so I am inviting you to start in Classroom 1 at 6:30 for a brief description of our programs presented by the teachers. Please stop by and say hello, ask questions, or share an idea. After that, our teachers will be around the main study / instruction room to answer general questions about Venture. Please remember that Back to School Night is a time dedicated to learning about your student’s experience and expectations here at Venture. This is not a good time to ask specific questions relating to your student. An email to your student’s teacher will allow for a more thoughtful and personal response.
SRVEF RUN FOR EDUCATION – October 12, 2014
