Good afternoon VCHS parents,

April was a busy month at VCHS with lots of great events and opportunities for students to continue their learning outside of the classroom.

We had a very successful Job and Career Fair involving many local partners and guest speakers from our community.  Our VCHS Foundation Auction was a huge success and continues to be a huge fundraiser for our students and programs.  Right before Spring Break we had our always popular Car Week, Springfest, and then Jag Idol talent contest to close out the week.  A big thank you to all of you that support these wonderful events on our campus.
