HoS Highlights: Celebrating our 3rd Anniversary!

HoS Highlights: Celebrating our 3rd Anniversary!

By Ryan Persaud / August 25, 2023 / Head of School Highlights

It is hard to believe that two weeks have passed since my last newsletter. Since that time, so many exciting things have taken place. Our weekly leadership meetings have provided the team with an opportunity to forward plan for the future of VERSO. Two key initiatives that we are working on this year are our upcoming WASC visit and our strategic plan. There will be more on this later with opportunities for parents to come in for a coffee morning to hear all the details


On 17 August, we celebrated our 3rd anniversary here at VERSO. This was a day for us to reflect upon our past, give thanks for all that we have accomplished, and be hopeful as we step into our fourth school year. We look forward to many exciting learning opportunities your child will experience this school and especially to celebrating our first graduates from VERSO in June 2024.

As we work on building our community this year, it has been wonderful to have so many parents joining us on campus. We have had two coffee mornings this week, one with our Athletics Director Garrett Cutler and another with Lower Loop Leader Cushla Jones and the EY4-5 families, both of which were well attended.

For our next parent session, please save the date 6 September for an informative UniVERSOtea morning with Greg Mason, our Career and University Guidance Counselor.

Speaking of building community, our basketball season is just getting underway, and this year we have our highest number of teams registered with GBAC. Please be reminded that our After-School Activity sign ups end on Monday 28 August, and shortly thereafter we will share our new pick-up times.
