Vanguard's Back to School Night has be rescheduled for Wednesday, August 31.  Due to the disruptions caused by the local fires, we will be changing our usual format.  There will not be a formal principal's message in the gym at 5:30.  Instead, we will have an open forum in the gym at 5:30 where parents can get help signing up for Aeries Gradebook (aka Parent Portal), the AVUSD mobile app, and the student handbook.  Administration will be available for an open Q & A session.  

Classrooms will open their doors at 6:00 p.m.  TK-5th grades will have two repeating sessions at 6:00 and 6:30.  6-8th grades will operate in an "Open House" format where students will escort their parents to their classes in any order and describe what each class is like.  Teachers will make themselves available for questions.

Please note that there is only ONE Back to School Night event this year and it is for ALL grades TK-8!



On November 10, 2015, Vanguard was informed of its successful redesignation as a "Schools to Watch/Taking Center Stage" model middle school.  This accomplishment reflects the successful programs and hard work of our staff, students, and parents.  Vanguard will be recognized at the state conference in Sacramento and the national conference in Washington, D.C.  
Vanguard was selected as a 2015 Honor Roll "STAR School" by the CBEE (Campaign for Business and Educational Excellence) for excellence in student achievement.  This marks the second year in a row we have received this recognition.  Way to go students, staff, and parents!

Summer 2016

We hope you are all enjoying your summer vacation. We will be updating this page as summer progresses with new information and updates to our school and district. A couple of new programs that are coming include Raptor and Blackboard. Raptor will be replacing our volunteer badge system and will add a faster and more comprehensive screening system to keep our school safe. Blackboard is an online application that will allow you to communication with your teacher, check your student's grades, and receive notifications--all in one stop shopping!
More information will be coming soon.
