Happy New Year!
No, really! It's a brand new year at VMCCA! We should be getting out the party hats and noise makers, and just going to town! For so many reasons! Here, I'll list them for you!
1. We are back in our own building, and ALL the classrooms are being utilized, again!
2. I took 11 GREAT students to the Global Student Leadership Summit in Milan, Italy, and we (meaning they, and of course, YOU...VMCCA!!) made quite an impression while there! We had 4 students on four of the finalist teams at the Summit, and one of ours was also on the winning team! When our students kept getting up to go and be in the finalist presentations, someone looked over at me and asked, "Who ARE you people!?" I laughed and said, "We are VERNON MALONE!"
3. We had a blast looking at an eclipse, yesterday! It was AWESOME!
4. We are going to be welcoming a new Captain to our ship...the awesome Abby Stotsenberg!!!
5. We are going to ROCK school-wide PBL's, and OTTER, this year!
6. Let's just face it...we love our school, and it's great to be back!
So, break out the happy dances...we are back and we are going to have a great year! Now, let's get to it!
