       The Bruce Vento Family Center strives to build relationships with families while creating a bridge between school and home.  The Family Center is located in room 1302, staff are available school days from 9:30 am to 3 pm and on Thursday's until 4:30 pm. 

    Our goal is to provide families with opportunities to connect with other families, pass along resources, educational information, and build a network for support.  Weekly we host Family Connect meetings as a way to build community and a supportive network.  Join us Tuesday's and Wednesday's at 8:30 am for Family Connect.  Once a month the Family Center hosts Vento Connect from 2 to 3 pm.  Vento Connect will provide educational information for families related to reading, math, and other educational content areas. Families are welcome to visit anytime, we look forward to meeting you!
