In honor and gratitude to our VLA school board members, June 2022 is School Board Appreciation Month in Idaho. This annual event provides each of us with the opportunity to honor the important role and dedication of our local school board members and express our thanks and gratitude for their public service.

School Board Recognition Month honors the countless hours of service made by our unpaid elected volunteers who serve our school. These leaders give their time and energy to tackle budgets, oversee the management of VLA, and serve our students, teachers, staff, administration and families. THANK YOU!

8th grade graduation is a special tradition at VLA. On the last day of school we gathered family, friends and students to honor and celebrate our graduates. Each grade level presents the 8th graders with "Gifts from the Heart". That can include songs, poems, pictures and handmade gifts. Miss Coles kindergarten class presented them with a Leadership Survival Guide. It was full of decorated hearts to remind them how loved they are, along with a few other things. Mrs Affleck's kindergarten class presented them with paper airplanes to help them soar into the future. These are just a few examples. We love our graduates and wish them a happy future as they venture into high school. We are grateful for the positive impact they have had at VLA.

The fifth grade class at VLA has completed their service learning project for this school year. Their project focused on the needs of our local community. The CityHope Pantry, which is one of our neighbors, was in need of food cans and other dry food items. The whole school was invited to participate, with weekly collections from the 5th grade students. As a school, we collected a total of 3,345 items, significantly beating our goal of 2,001 items. The pantry volunteers were grateful for our donations because they were low on food. Thank you to our VLA students and families for donating generously.

VLA recently held their Leadership Day. This event is held annually and is student-led. The planning process takes several months, which provides students an opportunity to practice and develop their leadership skills. This event highlights successes from the school year, as well as builds trust, unity and community. The ultimate goal of our Leadership Day is to communicate each students worth and potential so clearly that they are inspired to see it in themselves.

VLA Middle School students had the opportunity to learn the paper art of marbling! Steve Pittelkow is an artist and bookbinder from Florida that came for a week of art. Steve teaches marbling and bookmaking extensively at book arts centers and at colleges and universities throughout the US and Europe. Each middle school class and the MAC classroom had the opportunity to explore and create marbled paper. Students marbled over 300 pieces of paper in multiple techniques! Many thanks to Steve for his time, materials, patience, and creativity!

Did you know there is an 8th Habit?
It is FIND YOUR VOICE AND INSPIRE OTHERS TO FIND THEIRS.
When you combine your talent, passion, and conscience in a way that meets a need in the world, you find your voice. Once you find your voice, you are able to help others find their voice. How have you inspired others to find their voice? At VLA we continue to use our service learning opportunities to help with the needs in our community. Be watching for updates on several of our recent service activities.

Find Your Voice and Help Others to Find Theirs.

It is Student-Led Conference time at VLA! Student-Led Conferences give students, families, and teachers the perfect opportunity to have a purposeful conversation about learning.

The Leadership Notebooks are used as the cornerstone of the Student-Led Conference. Our student-leaders will report their progress on academic or personal goals, scores, grades, reflections and assignments they have collected throughout the year.

These conferences provide our student-leaders an opportunity to practice organization and communication skills. Selecting work samples and preparing Leadership Notebooks prior to conferences takes time, practice, and skill. Students hone their communication skills when they role-play conferences, anticipate questions, prepare answers, and conduct the conferences.

Engaging students in the educational process is an integral piece of student leadership and development. After all, the ultimate leadership role for students in our Leader in Me School is to be the leader of their own learning.

Kindergarten-8th grade: March 17-18, 2022
If you have not scheduled your conference time, please reach out to your student's teacher.

Here at Village Leadership Academy, our teachers have access to tools designed to teach leadership to every student, create a culture of student empowerment, and align systems to drive results in academics.

By offering a four-day school week, your student will be in class Monday through Thursday learning and growing. Every Friday, your student gets to learn at home (or spend time with one of our childcare partners) and every Friday, your child's teachers will spend the day improving their classrooms.

It's a win-win, we believe that as your student's teachers become better teachers, student's education experience will improve!
