Veneta Elementary is lucky enough to have wonderful teachers who work hard to provide their students with the best learning environment possible. Our teachers go above and beyond every single day. They are simply amazing and we are grateful for everything they do. If you get the chance this week, be sure to thank your child’s teacher and let them know how much you appreciate how hard they work all year long to help your child be successful. A word of thanks or even a note of thanks lets our teachers know that you know that they make a difference and that the work they do matters.

Voters will get the opportunity to approve a bond measure for the Fern Ridge School District in the May 20th primary election. Measure 20-220 is not expected to increase the school bond tax rate as it just extends the current tax rate and replaces an expiring bond. FRSD will use the funds from the bond to make long range facility improvements throughout the school district as well as increase student safety and upgrade technology. There will be a bond oversight committee composed of district staff, parents, and community members to ensure that the funds are spent in line with the long range facility plan and district goals.
Veneta Elementary’s Annual Talent Show is this Friday at 12:30 in our gym. Student performers will entertain with singing, magic, jokes, and other amazing acts. All of the students involved have been practicing hard. It takes a lot of courage to perform in front of the entire school and we are so proud of each and every one of them. We know that we will have an amazing display of shining stars on Friday.
We also want to thank the teachers who have worked hard to make the Talent Show happen and to provide this opportunity for our students- Ms. Beller, Mrs. Pebworth, and Mrs. McGuire.
