Good Morning Vista Family, I am pleased to introduce you to the newest addition to the Vista staff, Olivia Cruz! Olivia was raised here in Aztec and after many years of worldly adventures, starting a family and diving deep into geology, Olivia decided to become a teacher.

Good Morning Vista Family, Tomorrow we will be administering the New Mexico ASR science exam to our Junior students. Juniors need to be at school on time tomorrow. All other regularly scheduled internship/classes will be taking place and transportation is still available. Dreher

Good Afternoon Vista Family, Just a reminder, tomorrow is SAT testing. Students may still go to their internships if they have transportation but transportation will not be provided by the school. If they do not have an internship day, it is a remote learning situation from home. Those students may work on pursuing their next internship opportunity. Good luck Juniors! Dreher

Good Evening Vista Family, I have a wonderful and rare retraction to deliver this evening. We have restructured grant funding for our work based learning and have gained approval to continue to pay our students through the end of the year for the excellent work that our students have been doing! Have a great evening! Dreher

Good Morning Vista Family, We have a few key announcements to share about the upcoming weeks. Today is the last day that we can guarantee payment to students for internship hours. This does not mean they need to stop getting hours, it just means that grant funds are dwindling and we could be at a zero balance in the near future. Students are still earning credit for their hours regardless of pay. Next Wednesday, April 10th, we will be administering the SAT for our Junior class. For all other students this is either an internship day or a remote learning day. There will not be provided transportation on that day as Mr. Dobbs will be administering the exam. Juniors will need to be here at 8:00 and should finish up testing just before lunch. Finally, the Aztec Prom will be taking place on Saturday, April 13th. Guest forms are available at the front desk now, and tickets will be on sale beginning Tuesday of next week. We are struggling to find computer power cord for our students. Each student should have a charger for their Chromebook but currently we have less than half of them accounted for. Please speak with your student about getting these chargers back to school. Lastly, next Friday, April 12th, the adulting 101 class will be heading to Tiger Pond for a day of fishing. Thank you all! Dreher

Good Morning Vista Family, We are pursuing the opportunity to become a community school in the state of New Mexico. One of our key steps is getting feedback from all relevant stakeholders. This grant would help give us the ability to expand our community partnerships in order to radically strengthen the resources and the student experience here at Vista. This survey should not take more than about five minutes. Thank you for your continued support as always! Dreher https://forms.gle/hfj4gg9RsWtadG5P9

Good Morning Vista Family, We have had a few parents contact us about weirdness with appointment times for exhibitions. Depending on your phone, your settings and your use of google, occasionally appointment schedules default to the Pacific Time Zone because that is where google is based. The time zone is displayed on the sign up page. I do not know how to fix this, even on my own phone it does this. I apologize for any confusion this may cause anyone and I will continue to look for a fix, but in the meantime, we will all just to have to pay attention to what time zone is displayed for us on the booking page. Thank you for your patience and my apologies for confusion, Dreher

Good Afternoon Vista Family, Over the break you should have received an email from "Admin 360" with a link to a survey for the state. Any parent/guardians able to fill this out for us in the next few days would be really helpful in our pursuit of funding for our school. This email would have shown up on 12/26 or 12/27. I will send out more information about this funding opportunity in the near future, but I would really appreciate help with this. Thank you for your time and continued support! Dreher

Good Morning Vista Family and Happy Holidays! As we head into the holiday break, just a few announcements and requests. On Thursday, a group of our students will be traveling to the Aztec Senior Center to do some holiday caroling. I am especially excited for the very original rendition of "The 12 Days of Christmas". Later today or tomorrow, guardians will be receiving an email from "Qualtrics". In this email is a link to a survey that will have a direct impact on a funding opportunity for school. Please, if you could take a few minutes to fill this out honestly it would be very helpful for many new endeavors. Our building is full of holiday cheer and the staff and students are bringing ear to ear smiles to my face every day. From our family to yours, we wish you a safe and loving holiday break! Dreher

Good Morning Vista Family! Whew! We made it through our first round of exhibitions! Thank you to everyone that came in to support our students through this new experience. Our students did very well. Now it is time to look to the future. Next Friday, November 17th, at 11:00 AM, we will be having our annual Thanksgiving feast, sponsored by the Aztec Boys and Girls Club. Our meal will be taking place again in the gymnasium next door. This is always a special day at Vista and we would love for our extended family to join us again in giving thanks for the many blessings in all of our lives. We had a tremendous turnout last year, but unfortunately ran a little short on food. The school will be providing turkey and will have all of the plates, napkins etc. We would love anyone's contributions to this feast. Below is the link for signing up to bring your favorite dish. Thank you to everyone that can contribute and we look forward to seeing you next week! Dreher https://www.signupgenius.com/go/10C0945ABAD2EA2F4CE9-45869634-vista#/
