Please join us for our first meeting on Tuesday, August 29th, from 9am-10am in the Main Office. All are welcome and translation will be provided. 

Welcome to the 2017-2018 School Year!

Classes begin on August 15, 2017

 

We are looking forward to another year of

conquering challenges and celebrating successes 

with you at Venice High!

 

 

 

 

welcome to the 2017-2018 School Year!

Welcome Back to School Venice Families!

 

We are excited to welcome the Class of 2021 this year, along with many new students at every grade level for the 2017-2018 school year!

 

This will be a fun and exciting year. Many of the teachers spent their summers collaborating to plan great activities and learning cutting edge instructional strategies.

 

I want to start with sharing some great news! We have two teachers who were among 22 teachers from across all of LAUSD who were awarded Teacher of the Year! Congratulations to Ms. Kirsten Farrell and Mr. Daniel Buccieri! We have a number of new teachers and staff joining us this fall. I hope everyone will welcome them to our Venice Family!

 

If you were not able to have your child pick up their schedule during pre-registration and purchase a 2017-2018 Spirit Package, it is not a problem.

 

The Fall Semester begins at 7:57am on Tuesday 8/15/17. All students will go to their Registration Room to pick up their finalized Fall 2017 schedules. Registration Rooms are done by student last name in alphabetical order, and the room assignments will be posted in the Main Building and around the school on the first day.

I am excited about the new year. We have the highest enrollment numbers the school has seen in over three years, we are well organized, our test scores are again up, and the school is ready to embark on another year of offering successful programs for our students. There will be two interim principals serving Venice in my place from today through 10/15/17. Mrs. Fonna Bishop and Mr. Robert Marks, who between them have over 94 years as public school leaders. I will be out until then to treat issues resulting from aggressive cancer treatment I received prior to beginning my tenure at Venice. Please feel free to contact them as you would me with anything you need. We are here to serve you and ensure your child has an excellent experience at Venice High. Mrs. Bishop’s email address is: fjb6723@lausd.net, Mr. Mark’s email address is rxm6656@lausd.net.  

 

If there is anything we can do to serve your child or you better, or you would like to meet to discuss any questions or concerns, do not hesitate to reach out to us.
