Bullying Lessons: A guidance lesson will be shared in both the 7th and 8th grade toward the end of April and the topic will be centered on how to address bullying at school. As part of this lesson, a You Tube video will be shown that has a profound message about the impact bullying has on the bullied person. Here is the link to the You Tube video that will be shown if you would like to view it. http://www.paperrose.mazzucto.org
Bright Arrow Automated Notification System: Vestaburg Schools are launching a new Automated Notification system that will allow for parents and students to receive updates, reminders, as well as school closing information. Parent’s please log into your parent portal and make sure your information and phone numbers are correct. When updating your information you can also choose to receive phone calls, text messages, or emails. If you have any questions please contact the office for assistance.
Growth Assessments: Throughout the school year middle and high school students will be taking the N.W.E.A. assessments. There will be three assessments that students will take annually. While these assessments are not used in grading they are very important as they will give a picture of where the students skills and abilities are, how much growth they are making, and will used to determine what offerings and interventions that we may adopt.
*Reminder that student drop off and pick up is to be done in front of the school building. We need to keep the streets in back of the school clear for the school buses.
