The Direct Connection

August 14, 2017


Good Monday morning, Teachers, Staff and Administrators:


Best wishes to each of you as we embark on a new school year. Today we start to build a culture for learning in each classroom and school that will set the tone for the rest of the year. I respect and appreciate the job that each of you does for our students. I hope you have a great first day and opening week.


Throughout our district, we will welcome students back to school and capture the first week of school via Twitter by using #vcswelcomeback.  Feel free to post and share your first week's highlights with us.  Look forward to a storyboard showcasing the best from #vcswelcomeback for everyone to enjoy.  


Kindest Regards,


Tom Russell


Student achievement at the end of the school year

is directly related to the degree to which

the teacher establishes good control of classroom procedures

in the very first week of the school year.
