Christmas will soon be here and the students have been preparing for some GREAT performances. Here are the dates and times of the Villa Christmas Programs:
Preschool-Kindergarten: Monday, Dec. 12, 2011, at 11:15 AM
- Join us at 10:30am in the Cafeteria for coffee before the concert.

- Join us at 12:45pm in the Parlor for coffee before the concert.
All performances will be in the Rainbow Theater.
Dress for all programs is nice holiday attire. For kindergarten through 5th grades, free dress the day of their program.
If you wish to have siblings from other Lower or Middle School grades attend any of these programs, please plan to pick up the brother/sister at their classroom 10 minutes before the particular program.
Because we need to account for all our students at all times, teachers will not release students with just a note or a phone call. We also request that you do not call the office to page students from class. Siblings of all ages need to be seated with parents/families at all times. Thanks for your help with all these details.
We look forward to seeing you!

Lauren Plawner, MD, a Polyclinic Pediatric Neurologist will help us understand ADHD. ADHD can be a tremendous challenge for parents, teachers, and children. This workshop will help parents identify ADHD, distinguish it from other problems it may look like, as well as provide strategies to support school performance, organizational skills and family relationships.
This event is free, open to the public and for parents of children age 3-14. Childcare will not be provided.
November 14 through November 18.
This collection involves the entire school and supports needy families with children. Collected items are delivered to St. Bridget’s Church. From there, it is part of the St. Vincent de Paul distribution. The food and needed items are delivered to families in this area, specifically, those living in family housing at Magnuson Park.
The sixth grade is proud to continue this Villa Academy tradition of helping those in need. As you know, food banks are having a difficult time with the current economy. We are hoping that every student in the school will be able to make a contribution (no matter how small)!
The following is a list of kid-friendly, donation items:
Peanut Butter & Jam
Diapers: Sizes 4 & 5
Canned Meats: Chicken & Tuna
Macaroni & Cheese
Ready-Made Spaghetti Sauce
