Welcome back to all!

VAHS got off to a smooth and successful first week. By all accounts, students have “hit the ground running.” Among the things we will focus on this year are our commitment to Project Based Learning, and to Character Education, each of which will permeate all that we do.

As part of our focus on Character Education, we will emphasize our Advisory process this year, to strengthen student/advisor relationships, to increase the level of support and guidance. Toward that effort, we are having a special Advisory period every day for the first couple weeks of school
(please click here for the special bell schedule).

Freshmen Orientation a huge success
The class of 2023 got off to a great start! We send thanks to all who came out, helped out, or helped make 9th Grade Orientation possible!  We had a great time! More than half the 9th graders attended and the survey results indicate that the freshmen loved it and are ready to go.
WE ESPECIALLY THANK MR. MILLS, MS. NGUYEN, AND MS. O’KANE, WHOSE ENERGY AND VISION MADE IT ALL HAPPEN!
