Welcome back from a great summer!
The 2015-2016 theme for Vulture Peak is “Soaring Towards Success”. Success is defined through strong academics, student behavior, and community involvement. To help uphold our theme, we will welcome several new staff members to Vulture Peak. Mr. John Arterberry will be teaching 6th and 7th grade math, Mrs. Jill Henrichsen will teach art, Mr. Bradley Witham will teach 7th and 8th grade social studies, and Ms. Barbara Hashagen will teach physical education. All of these teachers have received extensive training and are looking forward to planting their roots here in Wickenburg. In addition to new teachers, we are pleased to welcome Mrs. Heather Rubash as our attendance clerk and school nurse, and Mrs. Cassie Stoneking, as the restart room/digital learning aide. We are excited to welcome these staff members to the Vulture Peak family and look forward to the fresh perspective and energy they will bring.
Vulture Peak has a rich tradition, which, combined with our initiatives to meet the challenge of today’s learner, gives students the opportunity to blossom both academically and socially. These initiatives include the following:
The first day of school is Tuesday, August 4. Please plan accordingly for the first morning of school, ensuring that your child has a stress free start to the year. This means that you have established a good sleep routine so that your child is well rested. Also, allow time for a healthy breakfast; make sure you know how your child will be getting home each day, and the lunch plan.
We will host a monthly Principal’s Coffee again this year. Principal’s Coffee provides an opportunity to share celebrations and Vulture Peak happenings. Our first meeting will be Friday, August 28. Please make sure to visit us on a regular basis and “like” us on our school Facebook. Both of these venues are ways to keep up with the most current events at school.
