Hello Venetia Vikings!
Welcome to Venetia Elementary School of the Medical Arts, where our belief is “Healthy Lives. Strong Minds.” I am honored to serve as the Principal of such a wonderful school and community. Our theme for the 2020-2021 school year is, “Learning Can Take You Anywhere! An Adventure Awaits…” We are excited to enter another school year with the School Grade of an A! We will explore the many possibilities that learning can take you and we are ready for the adventure.
With so many changes within the last year due to COVID-19 and Virtual Learning, we are committed to providing a sense of normalcy to our student’s learning environment each day. Our top three priorities for the school year are safety, wellness, and excellent instruction.
At Venetia Elementary, we strive to provide excellent instruction through embedding medical arts and health standards and implementing strong instructional practices that meet the needs of students through differentiated instruction, student ownership, and higher order thinking activities that encourage collaborative problem solving.
We truly believe in doing what is BEST for our children and showing them genuine care through building meaningful relationships. It is my belief that an educator’s job is to make students fall in love with learning by being passionate about our way of work in every classroom, reaching every student, every day. I am honored to have this opportunity to make this year a unique and valuable experience for everyone involved in the success of your child. Your active support and cooperation, combined with our professional efforts, will ensure academic success for your child.
It is my top priority to provide students with a safe and effective learning environment, full of rich experiences. I am eager to get to know all our wonderful students and families this year. I look forward to personally meeting you.
Let’s have an amazing 2020-2021 school year!
