School Snippets (3/6)

VH Bear Byte:

February 20-23rd was a very eventful week for us. The second grade students had a fantastic experience writing and performing their songs they co-wrote with Kid Pan Alley and our very own Mr. Andrews. The culmination of this event, a joint performance with the Brook Knoll 3rd graders was well attended. Thank you to Beth Hollenbeck for her coordination and to Universal Audio for sponsoring this experience.

The PTA held their auction on February 24th at Pasatiempo. It was a sold out event and the parent community support helped made our fundraising goal of netting $85 K to support our student programs. The entire Vine Hill staff is so appreciative of the community support the school receives that helps us continue so many quality programs.

From the Eagle’s Roost:

-The Kid Pan Alley was a smashing success!  Thank you to the Kid Pan Alley staff for their time and talent, and thank you to Universal Audio for their financial support.  The 3rd graders performed to a packed Student Union and the songs were amazing!

-Mr. Wahl will be hosting group tours of the Brook Knoll campus.  If interested, please call Brook Knoll’s front office to sign up for one of the tours.

-Do you DARE to be drug free and make healthy life choices?  Well, the kids at BK do thanks to our DARE program!  Thank you to the SVPD and Officer Hohmann for your dedication to our students.


The Dolphin’s Dish:

6th Grade Adventure in Yosemite:  Under the experienced leadership of teacher Renae Fish, over 80 6th graders enjoyed an educational, snowy adventure in Yosemite.  With a wonderful cadre of supportive parent and teacher chaperones, students hiked and climbed all over the Yosemite Valley and returned with lifelong memories.

Campus Move/Community Open House:  We are looking forward to moving into the twelve new classrooms and the gorgeous, new library on the lower campus in early March.  Please join us for a Community Open House to walk through this new section of campus on April 19, 2018.  More details will be provided as the date approaches.

Site Council Survey: We appreciate your feedback!  During March 5-9, our Site Council Parent Survey will be live on the school website.  Please take a few moments to provide us with the valuable feedback that helps to guide the work of our School Site Council.  Thank you!

From the Falcon’s Nest:

On February 22, Ms. Christie Danner, our school counselor, and three juniors attended the Watermark Conference for Women at the San Jose Convention Center.  The young women were selected based on their leadership potential and represented a diverse cross section of the student body.  The conference included inspirational keynote addresses from prominent woman leaders including human rights attorney Amal Clooney.  Our students participated in multiple breakout sessions designed to raise awareness around women's rights and develop leadership skills.

If you have driven by the Middle School recently, then you have seen the fantastic progress on the classroom buildings at the corner of Scotts Valley Drive and Bean Creek Road.  Here is a recent aerial view that also shows the beautiful library.  The lower picture reflects that the monumental gymnasium is taking shape!



Our Students Continue to Impress and Amaze Us!

Jarrett Bare, an eleventh grader at Scotts Valley High School, has already successfully developed and launched six apps, among other business ventures!  He is pictured below with Superintendent Krause at the 17th Annual Your Future is our Business Education/Business Luncheon, where he demonstrated his newest App, LitQuote.  According to Jarrett, “LitQuote helps revolutionize the way we write essays and allows students to find perfect quotes to write about through searching our immense database with easy to use filters.”  Congratulations, Jarrett – you make us proud!
