Principal's Message

August 2023

Dear Village School Parents, Caregivers, and Community Members,

We are so excited to be back together as a Village School Community! Please find an overview below of where you can find resources and Village School communication.

Principal Letters:

You will find letters from both Mrs. Fotter and myself under letters from the principal in the newsfeed of our website. These letters will also be sent via School Messenger.

Village Connections:

In order to bundle our communication, so you are not receiving daily notices from school, we will be sending a communication on Fridays with notices. You will be sent these notices through School Messenger, and they will be posted on the website.

Volunteering at Village School:

At Village School, there will be numerous opportunities for parental involvement this year.  We envision this connection as intrinsic to the success of our home-to-school relationship.  In collaboration with administration, school staff, parents, and the greater community.  Village School will offer a variety of Parent Connection Meetings. We will also have various special presentations, as well as numerous other experiences to involve families in the fabric of our life at school.  Additionally, we welcome parent volunteers as a most positive resource and encourage you to seek opportunities to assist in classroom activities, as well as our school.  These will all be noted on our Village School Parent Calendar of Events that are posted on the Village School Website.

News and Announcements:

Please look at the News and Announcement feed on our website to get up-to-date information, as well as dates for upcoming events at Village School.

The Village School Handbook:

The 2022-2024 handbook is posted electronically on the Village School Website and will be available in paper copy upon request.  We encourage parents to read and review this with their children.

Social Media:

Please also look for news and information regarding Village School on our Website and Social Media Connections:

We’re looking forward to an exceptional and positive year at Village School.  Our vision continues to be one of an inclusive learning community where all feel valued and connected, with student learning at the center.  On behalf of the entire Village School staff, we’d like to thank you in advance for your support.   

We look forward to working with you and your child(ren)!
