Dear Friends,

Welcome to the 2016-17 school year!

Our vision is to transform lives and instill lifelong learning. To actualize this vision we are committed to three goals:

1. Prepare all students for College and Careers.

2. Provide Equitable Access and Opportunities.

3. Instill 21st Century Skills.

Thank you for being a part of Napa Valley Schools. By working together, as parents, staff and community members, we will achieve these goals.

We provide our students engaging experiences that build their ability to prosper in college and careers of the 21st Century. These 21st Century Skills include the six C’s (Communication, Critical Thinking, Collaboration, Creativity, Character, and Global Citizenship).  

Please join by volunteering at schools, serving on Parent Advisory groups, and letting us know how we can improve.

Wishing you and your families a fantastic school year!

Respectfully,

Patrick J. Sweeney

Transforming Lives By Instilling 21st Century Skills

And Inspiring Lifelong Learning In Every Student

21st Century Approaches

Could we have imagined the changes in our world over the last five years? Ten years? Twenty years?  Likewise, we cannot fully predict the demands to be placed on our children in the future workplace and in society.  Our job is to prepare them for whatever lies ahead by developing skills which will serve them in any situation.  We refer to these skills which transcend time and cross over into multiple arenas as “21st Century Skills”. Click the link below to find out how every school challenges students to not only master rigorous California content standards, but also develop critical thinking, communication, collaboration, and creativity, some of the most important of the 21st Century skills.
