    Dear 8Th Grade families,

    Congratulations to our VV fabulous students for their many accomplishments as they move on to high school. 

    As you all know these are very difficult times in the history of our nation and the world.  Your dedication and perseverance has made your promotion ever so very special.

    In addition, we have made a commemorative flash drive for keeping that will be mailed to your home in the near future.

    Finally, a Spanish version of the video will be completed and posted on the website soon.

    Once again, congratulations to the Fabulous VV Class of 2020!

    Dear Community Members,

    Thank you for coming out in support of Venetia Valley's beloved former teacher John Seligman to help him mitigate the hardship and challenge of the debilitating illness that recently overcame his dear wife Ana. John was able to come to see and appreciate the outpouring of love from all quarters of our school, community and district, including generations of Venetia Valley students, families and staff. It was amazing to behold and a testament to the power of love. Thanks to your generosity, we will soon present the Seligman Family with a check for $4,000.

    Best wishes to you and your families. You are loved too.

    Sincerely, The Staff of Venetia Valley School


    Estimados miembros de la comunidad,

    Gracias por venir en apoyo de el amado ex maestro de Venetia Valley, John Seligman, para ayudarle a mitigar las dificultades y el desafío de la enfermedad debilitante que recientemente venció a su querida esposa Ana. John tuvo la placer de convivir y apreciar la efusión de amor de todos los barrios de nuestra escuela, comunidad y distrito, incluyendo generaciones de estudiantes, familias y personal de Venetia Valley. Fue increíble contemplar y es un testimonio del poder del amor. Gracias a su generosidad, pronto presentaremos a la Familia Seligman con un cheque de $4,000.

    Mis mejores deseos para ustedes y sus familias. Tú también eres amado.

    Sinceramente, el personal de Venetia Valley

    StudentsOn June 9th, five VV 3rd-7th graders, two VV teachers, and one VV parent ran the majestic and challenging Dipsea Trail race - immersing themselves in the competitive running community of Marin. We congratulate them on their strategic training and execution and for competing with joy and heart. 

    SteamIn a competitive field with DMS, Marin Country Day and Mark Day students, ALL FIVE Venetia Valley projects won ribbons recognizing our students' creativity, grasp of complex interdisciplinary concepts and dedication to STEAM studies and their specific, diverse, self-selected, areas of inquiry.  Topics included:

    • CO2 Reduction (Second Year)-  1st place Best of Show, among class entries
    • ESP Studies- Precognition and Telepathy- 2nd place
    • Alternate Sources of Energy- 2nd place
    • Paranormal Investigation- Ghosts- 3rd place
    • Robotics- 3rd place

    Students thought out-of-the-box, continuously demonstrating passion, grit and perseverance, especially as the Fair date approached.  They rose to the challenge of busy schedules, managed their time like professionals and look forward to continuing their investigations.  Venetia Valley is proud our students and our capacity to offer significant learning experiences, motivated by student interests and experiences.  STEAM studies are highly relevant in today's world and have the potential for breakthrough results.  Special thanks to Community Member Fred Fielding for generously giving of his time and expertise as a resource to facilitate our students' academic growth.
