VCS & Buffalo PRIDE Offer Saturday Family Workshop 

The Villages Charter School and Buffalo PRIDE are thrilled to announce an exciting upcoming opportunity for our school families. On Saturday, October 18th Dave Benzel will offer another parent workshop. This past June, Dave presented to over 200 VCS parents and received rave reviews and multiple requests to offer additional programs.

In response to those requests, Dave has developed a program titled, “How to Create a Focused Family by Friday”. The session will be held at the VHS Cafeteria on Saturday, October 18th @ 10:00 am and is open to all VCS parents AND students in grades 6-12. We believe this will be a great family learning experience opportunity. This one-hour workshop will be similar to the one held in June and is free to everyone (and parents can earn PI hours). Additionally, Dave will be offering parents the opportunity to enroll in a new program called “Life Gym” built upon his recent research and work with various youth organizations.

New Online Gradebook Program Coming Soon

The Villages Charter School is required by our charter to utilize the Student Information System (SIS) program used by all of Sumter County Schools. Over the summer, Sumter County Schools and VCS have been working diligently to implement a new SIS called "Skyward". We are expecting the online gradebook portion of Skyward available to our students and parents soon.
