Click Here to Enroll in Ventana Ranch K3+ Summer 2018

 

Dear Parents of Students who will be in Kindergarten through 3rd Grade in SY 2018-2019

 

Would your child benefit from a “jump start” to his/her school year?  We are happy to announce that students at Ventana Ranch are able to receive a five week “jump start” in the areas of reading, written language and math.  This program is open to all students PreK-2nd grade, and is NOT a remedial program.  Students who participate in the K3 Summer Academy will begin their school year with a hands-on curriculum, STEM activities, and on-site reading and math interventionist to support struggling learners as well as our higher/advanced students.  The goal of K3 Summer Academy is to provide strategies and intervention time so that students remain engaged and involved during the summer.

 

The program will run: June 20-July 25, 2018.  We will be off for the 4th of July holiday on Wednesday, July 4 ONLY! Attendance is important, so please plan vacations accordingly.

In order to reserve a spot for your child in this wonderful learning opportunity, we are requesting that you complete this online form or fill out the paper copy will be coming home with your child.  These can be returned to your child's teacher at any time.   Your child’s teacher can provide you with your child’s current academic progress in reading, written language and math as well as some of the benefits of the “jump start” program during parent/teacher conferences. 

 

Please do not hesitate to speak with me should you have any questions. We look forward to giving your child the necessary skills and opportunities that he/she will need to succeed in the next academic school year.  

 

Sincerely, 

 

Vernadette Chavez

Principal
