**PTC**

Hi Freshman Parents! It was a pleasure to meet many of you at orientation last Tuesday and again, welcome to the Bulldog family! We are grateful for your purchase of spirit wear and we are looking forward to the support it will bring to the students and staff. Unfortunately, some of that spirit wear has a typo on it (the grey hoodie that says 'Vacaville Bulldogs'- Bulldogs has 3 L's in it) and we did not realize the error until 34 of them had been sold. We hired a new printer this year, and he is working diligently to get those reprinted for you. If you were one of the parents effected by this, please email PTC and we will make arrangements to get that swapped for you as soon as the new hoodies arrive (hopefully within the week). Our email is vacahighptc@gmail.com. We apologize for the Inconvenience that this created, but we promise to make it right. Thank you again for your support!

Becky Johnston, PTC President

VHS Visual Art Elective Survey

In recent surveys given during the WASC report we were made aware that students and parents at Vacaville High School have expressed interest in having more elective art classes offered.

 

Please take this survey and give us your input it would help us gauge interest in different programs and curriculum that we could potentially offer at Vaca High.

 

If you have any questions or suggestions please feel free to email me (Mr. Elliott) through my schoolloop account.

 

Thanks For Your Input,

 

David Elliott
