Busy as bees!
IMPORTANT FFO UPDATES DUE TO THE STATEWIDE TEACHER WALK OUT: As you know, Arizona teachers have voted to walk out on Thursday, April 26. Due to the uncertainty of what this means for Ventana Vista, we are postponing our Election Meeting which was scheduled for Thursday morning. Please note that we will instead hold our elections on Thursday, May 10 at 8:15 am.
In addition, our BOGO Book Fair is scheduled to begin on Saturday, April 28. We will be setting up the Book Fair this week, but please keep apprised via VVFFO Facebook page/Remind/email as the schedule might change. Likewise, our Bash and Color Dash could be impacted by the walkout. We will notify you as soon as possible if these events are affected.
It has also come to the Boardâ€™s attention that some families are looking for ways to support teachers during this time. VVFFO supports ALL teachers regardless of their position on the walk out. If you are interested in learning of ways to support district teachers, the CFSD Families #RedforEd Facebook Page is a good resource.
