Thank You for Attending the Ice Cream Social!

Thank you to everybody who contributed to our wonderful Ice Cream Social.  We made a lot of kids happy.  We helped a lot of parents with forms.  We had over 600 participants come out in 105 degree heat to share in the fun, with water misters, bubbles, snow cones, a strolling juggler, a balloon artists, forestry activities, crafts, and our community members from schools across SRCS who came to help us receive everyone.  This is what are we are all about.  These are the moments that build a culture of acceptance, inclusivity and seeing each other as human beings.  It's part of our fabric.  We reconnected and recommitted ourselves to each other with a great big hug.  We love you.  It's going to be a great year.  Enjoy!


Gracias a todos los que contribuyeron en nuestro maravilloso evento de Ice Cream Social. Hicimos felices a muchos niños. Ayudamos a muchos padres a llenar los formularios. Tuvimos más de 600 participantes que soportaron 105 grados de calor para compartir la diversión, las agua, burbujas, conos de nieve, un malabarista ambulante, un artista de globos, actividades forestales y manualidades. Miembros de nuestra comunidad de escuelas de todo SRCS nos ayudaron a recibir a nuestras familias. Esto es lo que define quiénes somos. Estos son los momentos que construyen una cultura de aceptación, inclusión y de verse los unos a los otros como seres humanos. Esto muestra de qué estamos hechos. Nos reconectamos y volvimos a comprometernos con un gran abrazo. Les amamos. Este será un gran año escolar. ¡Disfruten!

In 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.
