Message from the Principal

Dear Venture Prep Families,

Happy Spring!  By the time you read this, all our testing will be finished for the year and we’ll be focusing our energy on ensuring your child is ready for the rigors of next year.  Yes!  We’re already talking about next year!
To balance the energy given to important learning, we want to make sure we also bring some fun!  Whether it’s Prom, Field Day, class trips, or awards ceremonies, we have so many opportunities during the coming weeks for students to build community, show their creativity, celebrate their successes, and make positive memories. Time to bring the joy!

Warmly,

Erin Quigley

Principal

Venture Prep Highlights

 Building Relationships

A new tradition at Venture Prep is for every grade (including teachers) to go on an overnight trip at least once a year.  During these trips, students build strong bonds with their peers and their teachers.  They also develop their leadership, problem-solving, and communication skills by participating in fun games and activities.  We love getting to know your child as individuals on these trips! Below are some of the pictures from the 10th and 11th trips that took place last week.  Tons of fun!
