Good Day Parents, Guardians, & Stakeholders!
The academic school year is well under way. Venetian Hills has three main goals for the 2012-2013 school year. Our first goal is to increase the use of technology, tap more talented students,and provide more student life activities. Our faculty and staff have been hard at work ensuring that each and every student receives a rigorous and relevant curriculum. This year we are using the Common Core State Standards which are curriculum standards adopted by over 48 states. The standards are intended to prepare your child for college and career. Daily, I have the opportunity to visit classrooms or to observe student work that showcase these standards. We are working diligently to provide your child with a world class education. During our Principal’s Roundtable and September PTA information was provided to parents about the Common Core State Standards and how parents and community can support students in Reading and Mathematics. Together, our mission is to prepare students for the next grade level and beyond.
The next Principal’s Roundtable will focus on the topic of Bullying Prevention. Here at Venetian Hills, we strive to provide a safe and positive learning environment for all students. To do this,we need your support. The goal of our Principal Roundtable will be to provide you an overview on the APS Bullying Policy, resources and steps that you can use to report bullying and what parents should look for and listen for from their child.
We are making great strides at Venetian Hills Elementary School. Let’s continue to work together to build a strong school and strong community.
