We have been doing these monthly updates since May 2021, which makes this edition our 14th. That, in itself, is hard to believe, but what is even more amazing is all the work that has been accomplished during that timeframe. 😯 So much is getting done inside the elementary wing....the gym floor is getting finished, classrooms are all painted, and cabinetry is being installed. The HS renovations continue this summer. The flooring in some of the halls and cafeteria are being replaced and we're making it through the four seasons of optimization with the HVAC systems. That's just the inside! With the school year ending at the beginning of this month, work has started outside with the elementary entrance and some of the parking lot work starting. The #VanguardPride excitement continues! 💚💚💚

Chaperones Sr. Hruby and Ms. Kanwar took 6 students on this year's Spanish trip. They visited Galveston, Texas where highlights were a Segway tour visiting historical locations throughout Galveston and watching the sunrise on the beach. Next was San Antonio where they visited some of the Spanish missions (San Juan, Concepcion, Espada) as well as the Alamo. There was also record heat while they were in Texas which made their 20 mile bike ride in San Antonio challenging. The last part of their trip they spent in Sedona, Arizona. A hike at Red Rock State Park was a favorite of the travelers and they were able to visit the Grand Canyon as well. ¡Fue un buen viaje
