Message from Superintendent Steve Olmos Ed.D.
Welcome to the new school year! As a large school with families in nine different counties a “digital pep rally” is a great way to build community and celebrate our students. This is my first back to school at Visions and I’m so excited to see the photos and videos our students and families share. Wishing you the best for the fall semester and I look forward to serving you.
Digital Back to School “Pep Rally”
The first few weeks of a new school year are always exciting. Digitally sharing photos and videos is a great way to connect members of our Visions community.
For the past few years we have collected and shared your back to school photos. And this year we are adding the option to share a short (10 – 20 second) video as well! Seeing our students smiling faces in a photo is great but hearing their laugh is even better!
To participate you’ll need to follow us on Facebook and Instagram. Share your back to school “pep” in a photo OR video post on social media using the hashtag #VisionsFirstDay to be entered to win one of several $25 gift cards!
Please make sure that you have a public account so we can see and share your photos and videos. Submissions must be posted by September 19. See additional details below*.
Here’s some ideas to help you get inspired:
- Capture your first meeting with your teacher.
- Take a selfie or short video showing your back to school excitement.
- Show off your “home classroom” or workspace.
- Model your first day of school outfit.
- Create your “back to school checklist” in a creative way and share via photo or video
- Super organized? Post a picture of your planner or desk or give us a short video tour.
- Create a poster to hold in your photo or video. Include grade, age, teacher and list of favorite things.
Take a look at last year’s photos on Facebook for even more inspiration.
