We have enjoyed a very special first semester. Students and teachers have been working very hard to meet our state and district standards. Students are eager to learn and are following the lead of our wonderful teachers at Vinewood.

The Vinewood Garden was in full swing during the first quarter. We were excited to begin our Farmers Market on Tuesday and Friday afternoons. Parents and students helped support the garden by buying fresh tomatoes, zucchini, cucumbers and watermelon. It has been a blessing to see the joy the garden has brought to our school.

Students have enjoyed preparing for this year's Science Olympiad and Math Olympiad competitions. We have a number of teachers serving as coaches and a number of parents who have volunteered their time to help provide an exciting learning experience for the children as they prepare for competition.

Sixth-grade student Jack Goble performed well in the Lodi Area and County Spelling Bee. He will represent Vinewood School in the state competition in the spring of 2012. We are excited for him and wish him the very best. Good luck, Jack!

Vinewood teachers Judy Fraser and Susan Quesada worked closely with parents Shawna Ahlbach, Toni Meyers and Kip Hummel to construct our first float for the Lodi Parade of Lights. The float was amazing, but more importantly, our children experienced the joy of designing and building the float and the fun of participating in the parade. What a memorable experience for our students.
