As we begin June with the end of this very strange school year approaching, I want to again offer my appreciation to the families, children and staff of Village School for their perseverance, optimism and courage as we continue to work our ways through living in the pandemic. You have all shown such a strength of character that I am honored to be associated with all of you.We look forward to celebrating our fifth graders with our "Drive Through" Moving Up ceremony and certainly wish them all the best as they move on to Southwoods Middle School. You will always have a warm welcome, friends and a home here at Village. Eventually, the pandemic will subside and we will have picnics and other wonderful community events here at the school, and I fully hope and expect that each of you will come back to visit regularly.Information regarding the pick up of student items will be coming to you shortly, as will further information from the District regarding summer school. You may look forward to our final staff video, which will be coming your way at the end of the week. In the meantime, please stay healthy, take good care of yourselves and your families, know that you are terribly missed and stay connected.
Two former Village students, who are currently at SWMS, have created a free online class for students with the recommended age of 7-12 to learn about CAD and how to design different structures in 3D. Ketan Raghu and Hudson Welfer made this class to give students a free opportunity to learn about an important part of STEM. They will be using a free to sign up online program called TinkerCAD which students can sign up to with a school or personal Google account. As of right now they are planning to use Zoom or Google Meets to interact with the students.So far they have done this program with a group of 4th grade students and have had immense success so we are trying to reach out to more people and give more students an opportunity to learn about 3Dimensional design, and possibly spark an interest.Currently, the first scheduled classes are on Friday, May 8th and Saturday, May 9th.Further details can be found on their website:
