LaVenture Family,

Believe it or not, it’s already the middle of December! The year has gone quickly, and a lot has happened in the past three and a half months. LaVenture bands, LaVenture choirs, and the LaVenture-Mount Baker Orchestra have all had their first performances. Sport season #2 is already almost over, and rehearsals for the spring play Hoodies are already underway.

We are excited to share that LaVenture is rolling out Remind school-wide in January! If you're not already familiar with Remind, it's a school and classroom communication tool that makes it easy to stay involved with your child's learning. Remind is free to use, and you'll be able to get and send messages on any device—even a simple text message from your phone!

As part of this rollout, official accounts will be created for all the educators, parents, and students at LaVenture. In mid-January , you'll receive an email or text message from Remind. All you need to do is follow the steps in the message to finish setting up your account. Here is a video demo https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dYpFv-JnT0s to see how Remind works.

We're excited to make connecting with our families more engaging! ...

Included in this newsletter is a housing survey. If the survey applies to your living situation, please take the time to complete and return it – it will help us make sure that your children have all the support we are able to provide, and to which you and your children are entitled. If you have questions about the survey, please contact the school.

Winter break is December 19 thru January 1. School resumes on January 2nd. Have a wonderful time with family over the break, and may I be the first to wish you a Happy 2019!

It’s great to be a LaVenture Falcon!
