See our Ventana School calendar for up-to-date information about upcoming events.
Education Connection Series
Education Connection Series events provide opportunities for parents, educators and members of the community to come together and learn more about topics/issues that are of interest to us as a school and to the community we serve.
Coffee and Conversation (monthly)
Ventana’s Parent Association (VePA) and Ventana’s Leadership Team host a coffee service and an opportunity to engage in informal conversation around school operations, policy, or current topics of interest. This is a great time to enjoy that second cup of coffee in the company of other parents, to chat with school staff and administrators, and to ask questions regarding parenting or the Reggio philosophy.
Monthly Book Club
Christ Church Rector, Rev. Claire Ranna, hosts a series of book club events titled, Meditations on Meaning. This discussion group welcomes members of all faiths and the entire Ventana community; parents and parishioners.
Friday Brown Bag Lunch (monthly)
Parents of preschoolers and elementary students are invited to gather for lunch and convivial conversation. Teachers, administrators, and Rev. Ranna are often in attendance at these monthly events. Babies and toddlers are always welcome! Drinks are usually provided, and a brought-from-home lunch is perfect. And adult-portioned lunch can also be ordered through My Green Lunch.
Allowing new families and children the opportunity to acquaint themselves with "veteran" families is a focus of our community building outreach. Our office staff pairs a current family to each new family to help ease the period of adjustment to a new school.
