Consider over 150 new families have enrolled over the last four years creating a wonderful blend of new friendships within a small school environment. Our school has added designated teacher aides to each classroom so that there are two teachers in each classroom. Next, we have added dynamic fitness program to 3rd-8th grade PE classes, three days per week, so that all girls will recieve instruction in dance and boys will revieve sports training. We have also added choral and theater arts instruction to all grades TK-5th grade. We will continur to offer computers, spanish, and art to our enrichment class schedule.
SCHOOL HOURS: KINDERGARTEN 8:10am-2:55pm; Middle School 7:55am-2:55pm; 1st-5th grade 8:10am-3:10pm.
The following recent improvements will continue to attract new families: new teaching strategies to continue to improve writing, language arts and math; increased daily hours to Teacher Aides in classrooms; Individual Academic Support program to identify and improve academic skills gaps; WASC accreditation granted 6 year term and approved our 6 year Action Plan (read more); adding new educational programs such as IXL, Spelling City, new math curriculum; training teachers in the use of interactive boards; and the addition of qualified teachers and new program staff. Have you noticed the quality of our program staff who teach robotics, art, music, theater arts, piano, violin, computer, and Spanish?
We appreciate your contributions to make WVCS a special place where God is honored and children are inspired to be their best.
Kindergarten Round Up
We want to invite Pre K and Transitional Kindergarten parents and children to come visit our school. We will create a fun and welcoming atmosphere that will allow you to attend our elementary assembly, join a classroom lesson and meet the administration. To allow you to visit a classroom lesson we need to limit the amount of guests to 4 children each visit. Kindergarten Round Up: To RSVP, please call our office at 818-884-4710 to visit our Kindergarten classroom and student body assembly. We will start our round-ups in Feburary, March, April and May - if we have remaining openings).
How do we determine whether we will add two classes per grade? We seek to have maximum enrollment of 25 students per classroom. If we have total of 30+ students we will add another class. Remember to re-enroll so that you can reserve a spot.
Have you noticed a little a sparkle in the eyes of your faculty and staff? They are excited about all the new students and the additional educational programs that are coming this year. We are also curious about which parents will step up and join our efforts in inspiring your children to be the best they can be. With your help, we are very confident that the following items will be accomplished: gymnasium graphic designs, technology tablets for elementary classrooms, paint/painter for exterior walls, four more security cameras, interior decoration for school office, car window decals, replace building lights, shade structure for car line and playground sports equipment.
Thank you for your consideration as we continue to cast the vision to help WVCS be the best it can be!
To God be the glory.
