December 5th a survey will be going out to parents and students. Parents will receive a link to a google form that is a survey of our school. *Click on link that follows this article* We will have computers set up in the office to assist parents. A paper survey will also be available. Students in grades 1-6 will take their survey on a google form on their computer at school. Students will complete surveys by December 22nd. December will be the data-gathering period and January will be the data analysis period. February will be the action period in which we begin to respond to results of the data.

Superintendent Jane Shamieh and Board of Education President Shelley Dally presented Board member Nolan Sullivan with an award of appreciation for his years of service on the VUSD Board. Mr. Sullivan has a long history of serving students, not only as a Board member, but as the Chief Organizer for Measure A, the President of the Vacaville Public Education Foundation (VPEF) the Chair of Loop the Lagoon charity run and more. Nolan did not run for re-election so that he could spend more time with his young family, but we expect he will continue to have a strong and positive presence in our community. Thank you Nolan for all that you do.
Please be on time to school. If your child is absent, please call the Markham attendance office at 453-6230.
