Vena Tigers are Terrific!
8-9-0 Let it Snow! Let it Snow! Let it Snow!
Our Target API is 890. Last year, when our API rose to 878, Mrs. Nichols dodged HUNDREDS of water balloons thrown by students in Grades 3-5 who took the CST. We exceeded our Target Growth by 7%. We grew 62 points in 2010-11 and another 20 points in 2011-12, for a total of 82 points in two years. The whole Vena community celebrated this amazing achievement "Island Style" on Wednesday, October 31st.
This year, there will be snow at Vena if we reach our API goal of 890. So get your snow gear ready, Vena Tigers, and ROARRRR out with pride!!!
Update: We have reached our goal of 890! On December 6th (2013), there was enough snow on the yard for students to slide down a snowhill. Usually on "snow days" students on the East Coast stay home. On this most unusual SNOW DAY, the whole Vena Family was on campus to celebrate. Vena Tigers, you are way too COOL!
