Dear Bruce Vento Community

  • We are all anticipating the new school year. We all have questions around what this will look like. Rest assured our district is working hard to keep our families informed and will let all of us know as soon as they are able. Meanwhile, continue reading with your child and doing simple math problems. Encourage them to learn about something that interests them. Learn along with your child as they explore new interests. Not only will you and your child learn together but your relationship will continue to strengthen. These exchanges create memories. We are excited for the new school year to begin and please know that the Vento team is committed to make this year a great learning experience for your child regardless of any circumstances!  

    Stay safe and healthy!


    Laura Saatzer, Principal
