Due to a number of our bus drivers being out, we will need to double some routes which means student pick up and drop off times will be altered beginning Tuesday, January 18th. Thank you for your patience while we adjust to get everyone to school.
Alteraciones de la ruta del autobús escolar
Debido a que varios de nuestros conductores de autobús están fuera, tendremos que duplicar algunas rutas, lo que significa que los horarios para recoger y dejar a los estudiantes se modificarán a partir del martes 18 de enero. Gracias por su paciencia mientras nos adaptamos para que todos lleguen a la escuela.

The number of different perspectives, experiences, and interests brought to the committees by such a varied group creates an ideal environment for making the best decisions possible for Venus ISD students.
Selected Professional Staff
Venus ISD will host a series of Community Connections meetings. There are 5 meetings planned for the fall, with plans to follow up with more meetings in the spring. These meetings are designed to provide face to face communication with Venus ISD and the community.
We are constantly asking parents to come to the school for meetings. By having these Community Connection meetings, we are bringing to the school to the neighborhood community. The meetings are scheduled for one hour. We will discuss timely topics, have a presentation by VISD Board members, provide an update on the growth of the community, and field some questions from those in attendance.

We would like to invite everyone to celebrate Legendary Teacher Day! Teachers make a difference that lasts a lifetime, and everyone can think of a teacher who made a lasting affect on their lives.
The first step in celebrating a legendary teacher is to reflect on your education.
With the three tenets of a legendary teacher in mind:
• Building relationships
• Engaging deeply with students
• Creating high expectations
Reflect on your teachers who pushed you. Reflect on your teachers who held you accountable. And, reflect on your teachers who went above and beyond and invested in your personal success. At this point, you have likely identified a number of your teachers over the years who have collectively contributed to your academic success.
Now, how do you act on your desire to recognize your personal teaching legend?
Active - If your legendary teacher is currently teaching, reach out to them personally. Be sure to cite the specific reason that they are your legend.
Inactive or Retired – Send your tribute to the principal of the school where your legendary teacher influenced you.
In all of these scenarios, you are encouraged to post your legendary teacher tribute on social media. Be sure to include the all important #legendaryteacher in your posting.
Check out https://www.legendaryteacher.com/ for more details on how to celebrate teachers.
The Venus ISD Board of Trustees has taken the next step in celebrating legendary teachers, and has adopted a resolution in support of this initiative. Check it out below:
