A Note From Our Principal - September 2015

Dear Families,

The new school year is here and we are ready for a great one! It has been so wonderful seeing some of you coming in with our children for Ready Set Go conferences. Our students are looking like they had a fine summer of growing and having fun. We have all been working hard for the opening day of school and there is a sense of excitement in the air.

There are a few new faces here at Van Hise, along with some of us that have been here for a while. Please see the listing of the 2015-16 Van Hise Team below:

Playground Balls Needed

Cleaning out the garage? Our playground balls are in sad shape so if you have any gently used basketballs, soccer balls, footballs or jump ropes you may donate them to our playground equipment cart.

Just bring them to the gym this fall, but please make sure they are in good, bouncing condition!

Positive Behavior Support 2015-16

We are very excited to begin the sixth year of our Positive Behavior Supports (PBS) program at VHE. The PBS team works hard to implement school wide celebrations, social emotional learning opportunities, plan and implement assemblies, celebrate our students and staff and help with the universal behavior programming for VHE. In addition, this year, we are combining our Welcoming Schools program with PBS. Welcoming Schools is a comprehensive, LGBT-inclusive approach to creating respectful and supportive elementary schools for all students and their families.
