For over 15 years, we have held an All-Parent or New-Parent meeting at the beginning of each school year, to provide families with a variety of information about Villa:
15 years ago, we had hundreds of parents in attendance at these meetings, and they also served as an opportunity for parents to connect in a social way with one another. As times have changed, we are finding that families are busier and busier in the evenings, and as a result, last year’s meeting drew less than 40 attendees. Because we believe that this information is still very valuable to all families, whether new to Villa or not, it is important that we develop a new way of delivering this information to everyone that is more convenient for busy families.
Instead of holding the All-Parent meeting in person on September 18th, we will be producing a video that will be available on or around that date, which will include all of the above information as it pertains to the new school year. We will send out a link to the video via email for parents of all students enrolled for the 2019-2020 school year. Although we will NOT be holding a meeting in person, we are still available in the office every weekday, and would be happy to entertain any questions you might have about the information included in the video.
Please make sure you have taken the 9/18 meeting off of your calendars, and we look forward to connecting with you via our video session instead!
