Dear Village School Parents:
The holiday season – and the more seasonable climate (I hope everyone weathered this week’s rain ok) – is upon us and before we know it we’ll be off on winter break! In the meantime, I am so grateful to be sharing this special time of the year with you!
It’s always good to “formally” connect during parent-teacher conferences; we do so value the partnership between home and school. We also appreciate our fabulous VSPA Hospitality Committee leaders Jill Haas, Lisa Humiston Lisa Jeffery, Deanne Kripke and Stacie Smiley for providing delicious and nutritious snacks for teachers and staff during this busy time!

The Faculty Diversity Committee is proud to host INCA, The Peruvian Ensemble from The Music Center on Monday, December 10th at 8:15am. “INCA offers a wonderful and colorful array of music and dances from Peru and the Andean region. The show includes music and dances from the native Incas (Andean style), from the communities of the coastal areas (Criollo style) and from the villages south of Lima (Afro-Peruvian style).” The assembly will begin after morning announcements and end by 9am. Parents, enjoy the assembly with the students in the gym or via livestream link:

Village’s holiday giving opportunities for employees. This program was established as a convenience in response to requests from many of our families who wanted to give tokens of appreciation, and wanted them to be meaningful. The Business Office will facilitate these gifts and ensure that each recipient is furnished with a list of families who have participated (without the amount of each individual gift).
