WEEKLY EMAIL BLASTS:
At Albert Michelson Elementary, we believe strongly in the home/school connection as a driver for our students' success.  Communication plays a huge role in creating a transformative learning environment.  Each week, the school emails a "News and Update" message in English and Spanish. If you are not currently receiving this regular email and would like to be added to the list, please contact jbergantz@vsd.k12.ca.us and ask Mrs. Bergantz to add you to the list.  Michelson staff and teachers are just a phone call or email away.  Reach out to us and let us know how we can support your child in the best way possible!
 
Education is not the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire.
