Veneta Elementary School

Lisa Leatham, Principal


Teacher Appreciation Week is May 7-11. We’d like to take this opportunity to say THANK YOU for all the love, care, and encouragement you show our kids everyday.

Veneta Elementary is an incredible place to learn because of you!



Thank you to everyone who helped with the Veneta Elementary Auction! Our PALS Board, Auction Committee, VES Staff, and the whole community came together to make this year’s auction VERY successful. Thanks to all of you, our auction made $22,500 for our kids here at VES!

We had a fun visit from some animals from Wildlife Safari today. We got to meet a tortoise, a cockatoo, a badger, and a cavy and learned about the habitat of each animal. The cockatoo was a show stealer- he made everyone laugh by playing peek-a-boo with all of us!
Thanks to Mrs. Leatham’s dad for bringing Wildlife Safari to Veneta!
