Good Evening Vista Family, The staff and I have been presented with an amazing opportunity to join educators from around the state in ABQ for the Ed Uprising conference on February 9th and 10th. We will be leading work on graduate profiles, capstone courses, and work based learning opportunities. As a result, we will be going remote for those two days. Over the next two weeks, grade level cohorts will be discussing their projects that are directly tied to the work we will be doing in ABQ, our graduate profile and keys to success. Please feel free to reach out with any questions or concerns! Dreher P.S. The trimester ends on February 17th and progress reports were mailed home today.

Good evening Vista Family, I am overwhelmed by the number of family members coming to the feast on Friday! We are excited to share a day of gratitude with all of you. While we are looking really good on food supplies we could use a little help in the beverage department. If anyone is willing to help out with tea or water, please have your student let their advisor know tomorrow morning. We ask that all families enter through the front doors of Vista Nueva to be guided into the boys and girls club for dining! See you all Friday! Dreher

Good Afternoon Vista Family, We have received tons of questions over the last two weeks about what to expect this year at Vista Nueva High School. Here is your lengthy list of items that will hopefully answer a lot of questions. Supplies: Students do not have a supply list for VNHS. Some paper, pens, pencils and a few folders should do the trick. Start date: All students in all grade levels will begin at VNHS on Monday, August 15th, at 8:00 AM. For our new students, do not worry, we will be here to help you find your way to your first class of the day. “Harmony Week” - At VNHS we feel very strongly about the value of building our school community. What this means for students is that our first week of school is centered around this idea. Students will be participating in a variety of activities in small groups and as a whole school. On Monday, August 22nd, we will have our first “Internship Day”. Regular academic classes will begin on Tuesday, August 23rd, at 8:00 AM Internship days: Internships or Work-Based Learning experiences are now a requirement for graduation from Vista Nueva High School. Current seniors will have the option to participate in the internship program. Current Juniors will be required to complete a minimum of one internship experience and a minimum of 120 hours of internship. The graduating classes of 2025 and beyond will be required to complete a minimum of two internship experiences and 240 total hours for graduation. Each 60 hour segment is equal to .5 credits toward high school graduation. In addition to the credit earned for their internship experiences, all students will be enrolled in a “Career Exploration” class on Mondays for the duration of their time here. More information on internships will be forthcoming in the following weeks. Schedules: Students will work with Mrs. Deane, our counselor, to finalize their schedules throughout the first week of school. Food Service: We have a new food vendor in Aztec and we are very excited to see some of the new offerings that will be available to our students. Breakfast and lunch will be available to all of our students for free this year. Breakfast will be served in the cafeteria from 7:30 - 9:00 am every day. Lunch will run from 12:20 - 1:00 pm Monday through Thursday and from 11:55 - 12:35 on Fridays. Off Campus Lunch: Juniors and Seniors are eligible for off campus lunch. Freshmen and sophomores will be required to stay on campus. Advisory Class: All students will begin their day with their grade-level advisory. Annamarie Duesnberry will be working with our Freshmen. Jonathan Dobbs and Tamera Klohn will be working with our Sophomores. Our new science teacher, Aubri Workman, will be taking over our Junior class, and Alicia McClung will be working with seniors this year. Advisory is an academic weight bearing course, we have a lot to do during this class period and students need to be prepared to participate in advisory every day. Dual Credit: Students in New Mexico are required to complete a dual credit course for graduation. Mrs. Deane will be meeting with juniors and seniors next week to discuss enrollment and course schedules. Open house: We will send out an announcement about open house later this week. Due to the number of new initiatives we are introducing this year, we would like a few weeks to get things running so that we will have as many answers to as many questions as possible. We are very excited for the future of this school and to get to know all of our new family. See you all very soon! Dreher
