Hello VCI Community, we have almost made it to the end of another year – time does fly!  As we gear up for our year end celebrations such as Sports Awards, and Graduation I would like to thank everyone for another supportive year.  Students are reminded to get all assignment turned in by June 16th, and put in some time to prepare for final assessments – it is worth it.  Thanks to Jeanette for doing a great job of being our Student Council President – you made some very positive changes to VCI, and I wish Tori all the best as our incoming president.  To Erin and Emily – great job as Grad Chairpersons – a very effective and efficient executive this year – thanks!  I look forward to celebrating with all Grads on June 27th – it will be a bitter sweet kind of day for me.  I hope everyone finishes strong and has a great summer – wishing you all the best!
Take Care
Mr. Keown
