Dear VVS Parents:
I hope this letter finds you well and you are enjoying time with your child. I have heard from a number of students and the patterned response is, “Paul, I am so bored, I miss everyone, and I can’t wait to get back to VVS.” I cannot recall at any other school in my thirty plus years where students are as excited for summer to end. A parent remarked to me last week, “What do you all have in the water there? My son cannot wait to get back.” That is as tangible an example as any on what is special and unique about our multi-national community. Our community is a reflection of the way the world should be, and while our students and staff all provide diversity and differing backgrounds, when you put us all together on this dramatic landscape, we are one. We need each other. We miss one another. Hurry back kids!
