New Beginnings/New Experiences!

The start of each new school year gives opportunity for a fresh and/or new start.  With this stated, we have so many different new beginnings.  This includes our Kindergarten students to our Seniors.  Students with the new beginnings will experience so much and will have stories to tell for many years.

Along this theme, I think of our students at Tecumseh-Harrison.  They will spend the entire school year displaced as we completely remodel the building and continue with the integrity of the history of the building and what it means, but with this, transform it to a new building.  Students from Tecumseh-Harrison will make so many new memories being displaced and for our kindergarten through 4th graders will have an opportunity when the 2018-2019 school year begins to go into a new building.

Our students at Vigo will begin to experience some of this as we close out the 2017-2018 school year as they will witness their entire building being packed up and likely this will begin around the first of May.

Other new beginnings for students will be experienced by ALL our students and this will be meeting new teachers and staff and making memories with old friends and meeting new friends as students come and go over the course of the summer.

But the key thing that happens with the start of a new school year is that we all get the opportunity to get off to a great start and with this it starts with the mindset and this is not only for students but also staff alike.

Within the VCSC, we have so many things that we can offer students to find their enthusiasm and passion that will allow for getting off to the good start and with this kind of start, will always lead to a strong finish.

No school corporation can offer as much as what the VCSC can within the southwestern part of the state.  Our programming is unlike no other.  And it is with this that has led to our current promotional campaign that is led by the VCSC’s own, Mr. Tim Salters.

Our campaign is a simple one and it is “Looking for more Arts, Athletics and Academics in school?”  The three A’s are all tied to our vast programming we offer.  Whether it is JROTC, marching band, Challenge Research, math bowl, football or the actual curricular programming, no school can offer more, and quite frankly, it is why we chose the campaign that we did.

I encourage of you, whether you are on the search for new programming or an existing VCSC stakeholder, that you check out the website www.whyistheAbig.com.  This website does the absolute best job of portraying who we are in the VCSC.

It is also with the website and the campaign that we can offer the new beginning or the fresh start.

Check it out and truly experience “Why is the A Big”.

Go Big Green!
