Halloween is coming and our Halloween Extravaganza will be a family event you will want to attend. When selecting a costume for your child to wear to our event, please be sure that it is appropriate for an elementary school.  Safety is the highest priority. Children are not permitted to wear masks, bring dangerous items or bring items that represent weapons.  Please refrain from body paint or images on costumes that depict violence or injury. This Halloween event is about fun, not scaring small children. We appreciate your support in creating a safe and fun event for all of our students ages 5-11. Also, please remember that we do not wear costumes to school on Halloween.
We are preparing for next year. Registration for neighborhood students will begin December 5. Parents and guardians will receive a link to register via the email listed on file for each student. All open enrollment students need to apply for admission each year. The online open enrollment application will be accessible on November 1, 2016 on the district website, The applications will be collected through January 31, 2017.
Tours have already begun and continue through December. If you know of any new families who would like to find out more about Ventana Vista, please let them know it is time to sign up for a tour.
