Fall is just around the corner which means it’s time to get registered for Viking soccer!
There are spots available on all teams, but we especially need players for the following grades:
4th Grade Boys
5th Grade Boys
7th Grade Boys
8th Grade Boys
8th Grade Girls
Please sign up as soon as possible and encourage your classmates to play. We may need to combine a few grades, but it would be great to field a team in every grade for both boys and girls.
There is still room in the August 19-23 soccer camp here at Villa coached by Cassidy Gray. Please contact Cassidy directly to sign up at email@example.com
SAFE ENVIRONMENT TRAINING FOR COACHES
Jody Elsner will lead a “Safe Environment and Volunteer Training” class for any and all parents that will, or may, coach any sport this year at Villa. Please plan to attend on September 16 at 7pm.
Please contact Cope Miller.

Where in the world is the Villa community this summer? Send us a postcard showing us what you love or appreciate about where you are this summer! We will display them on a bulletin board to welcome you back to school in the fall.
Postcards can come from somewhere around town like Woodland Park Zoo, the Seattle Art Museum, the Space Needle, or your own drawing from your favorite park! If you journey out of Seattle then send us a postcard from Lake Chelan, Mt. Rainier, Paris, or even Gary, Indiana!
We’d love to see your summer world in postcards so take the Villa address wherever you go!
Villa’s Rainbow Theater was overflowing with impressive presentations earlier this week during the 4th Annual 7th Grade World Fair. Every 7th grade student displayed a project from each of the five continents they studied this year: Europe, South America, Africa, Oceania and Asia. As you can see in the World Fair Slideshow, topics ranged from Energy Conservation in Tokyo to French Fashion and Style.
Creative writing was a new component to this year’s World Fair as each student was required to write a novella based on one of his or her projects. Seventh grader Caitlin Hendricks called the writing process a “long and thrilling journey” with many hours dedicated to the novella. “We have each finished our first book and are proud to present them to the community.”
Thank you, 7th Graders for celebrating the world with us and sharing your amazing work!
Hunger has been the focus of the 4th graders community service throughout this school year. Partnering with Food Lifeline, they learn about the economic, social and cultural implications of hunger both locally and globally. But, students don’t just learn about hunger, they become part of the solution. Multiple field trips to the Food Lifeline facility in Shoreline gives them the opportunity to directly impact those in need by helping to prepare products for distribution to local food banks, shelters and meal programs.
In addition, both 4th grade classes plan an Empty Bowls soup dinner to increase awareness about hunger and raise money for Food Lifeline. This dinner for 4th grade families includes vegetables planted and harvested by students in the school garden, as well as handmade clay bowls created in art class.
Last week 4th graders visited Food Lifeline for a final time to present their donation to Linda Nageotte, President and CEO of Food Lifeline.
We are so proud of their dedication to this cause and for continuing the great tradition of service at Villa Academy! Great job, Ms. Southern, Ms. Rutledge and 4th graders!
The All School Barbecue/Picnic is this Wednesday, June 12th. Traditionally, we have our school field day some time during that same day. Because we like to keep things interesting, field day activities can take different forms from year to year. This year, students will participate in a fun-run/walk around the Villa campus first and then play carnival-type games on the playground, after running/walking. The current 7th graders (our leaders next year) will lead the games for us! Once they have completed the games on the playground, students will return to class.
Students in grades 4-6 will then be dismissed from class at 12:55 to find their families and eat. Grades K-3 students will be waiting in their classrooms at 1:10 pm for adults to pick them up to go eat. (If you are unable to attend, you can designate another family for your child to eat with.) Once students are done eating, they will remain on the front lawn to play. Parents/adults are asked to supervise. All K-5 students will return to class when they hear the air horn blasts at 1:50 pm. Regular Wednesday dismissal is at 2:15 pm.
Because students will be eating later than usual, please send a more substantial, healthy snack for late morning. Students will need energy for the fun walk/run!
Last Thursday, the 36 young men and women of the Villa Academy Class of 2013 celebrated Graduation. This impressive group has earned admission to the area’s top high schools, many with honors and/or scholarships.
