This week some of our VSA students found out that Sir Lewis Hamilton is a new Denver Broncos owner and that he's Dyslexic. They love hearing about famous people who are dyslexic and struggled reading. They decided to write him a letter to invite him to visit our school when he is done racing for his season and comes to Colorado. They love having Broncos #72 Garett Bolles visit our school, maybe we can make it a Broncos party and both of them can come to visit! #LewisHamilton will you come to visit us next time you are in Colorado? #vsarocks ...

Happy first 2 hour Snow delay! Due to weather VSA will follow Jeffco on a 2 hour delay. However we will have staff at the building at normal school start time if you need to bring your child before that so you can get to work. Our delay start carpool time will be between 10:05-10:15. We will hold a short class from 10:15-11:15 and begin our Thanksgiving “Friendsgiving feast” celebration at 11:15, with the meal served at 11:30. Our Poetry Slam will start at 1:15 and several of our parents have offered to take students over to the coffee shop so they don't have to walk. We will come back to VSA by 2:45 with a 3:00 dismissal as usual. Please read the email sent by Ms Amy for more details. ...

Ms Christine’s science class has been learning about the digestive, lymphatic, and cardiovascular system. Here they are playing a cardiovascular board game to get oxygen and nutrients to the cells and take carbon dioxide and waste out the the cells! Earlier this month they recreated the digestive system with actual food where the kids broke down the food and “pushed” it through the digestive system (a pair of stockings served as the intestines!) it was an Ooey gooey mess! #vsarocks #handsonscienceatvsa ...

Ms Emily’s kids have been studying poetry and will present a poem of their own at VSA’s Poetry Slam this Friday after our Friendsgiving Feast at school. Kids in Ms Michelle’s Two ELA classes will also be presenting something from their end of Unit ELA studies. If you are planning to attend as a parent check your email that Ms Amy sent last week regarding time and place. Please plan on getting there a little early and remember seating is limited! We will take pictures of course! #vsarocks #vsapoetryslam #vsacreativekids ...

Could this be the last time we "fall back" to standard time? A bill that would make daylight savings time permanent was presented and passed in the Senate and is stalled in the House currently. One of our 8th grade students wrote an opinion paper last year about why we should not change clocks in the spring and fall. He had some compelling reasons! What do you think?

At any rate, Don't forget to change your clocks tonight! Enjoy the extra hour.
