•How about that certain someone that you haven't had the nerve to ask out but have been admiring them for months?  

•Well, give them a "heart attack"  No, really have the Hawk band plaster their locker with paper hearts.  

•Don't forget your sweetheart who will think you are the most romantic person they have ever known!  They will be so surprised and would never expect it.  

•Order your "heart attack" at lunch today from the Hawk band near the Lava Pit and near H Hall.   It will be a blast to give a heart blast!   Bring locker numbers when you place your order

World History Event: 74 years ago today Pear Habor in Hawaii was attacked by the Japanese.

At 7:55 a.m. Hawaii time, a Japanese dive bomber bearing the red symbol of the Rising Sun of Japan on its wings appears out of the clouds above the island of Oahu. A swarm of 360 Japanese warplanes followed, descending on the U.S. naval base at Pearl Harbor in a ferocious assault. The surprise attack struck a critical blow against the U.S. Pacific fleet and drew the United States irrevocably into World War II.

Dear Parents:

Over the weekend Albuquerque Police received information about a Volcano Vista High student in crisis. APD is investigating reports that the student who is listed as a runaway, broke into his father’s home and stole two guns.

 

It is important to note that absolutely NO threats have been made against Volcano Vista High School, its students or staff members.

 

Because the student involved still has not been located, the school has requested extra APD and APS Police patrols at the school today as a precaution only. Your student may see extra police in and around campus for this reason.

 

As always we take all safety measures possible when incidents of concern are raised. Extra patrols of the school and area will remain until this student is located.

 

The safety and security of our students is always our top priority. 

 

Sincerely, 

Valerie Atencio, VVHS Principal

VVHS Parents/Guardians:

 

This is just to touch base about a few things that are going on right now:

 

  • START OF SCHOOL TIME is 7:25 a.m. Tardies to school have continually been on the rise, with a line of parent cars in the front drop off area in addition to our student drivers arriving after 7:25. We understand that the 5 minute change in start time this year is truly a big adjustment, but we ask your assistance to work on getting students to school so that they are able to be in class on time. This is a life skill that our students need to figure out, and high school is a great time for us to work on it. THANK YOU FOR YOUR HELP!!

 

  • SUNDAY, 11/01/15 – TIME CHANGE: set your clocks back 1 hour this Sunday, and get an extra hour of sleep! J

 

  • TUESDAY, 11/03/15 – Suicide Awareness/Prevention: we are holding our annual Suicide Awareness/Prevention lesson, added on to the end of 2nd period. For all late arrival or CEC students who don’t have a 2nd period, please report to the Lecture Hall by 8:55.
    • The video is posted on our website, vvhs.aps.edu; please feel free to view the video and discuss with your student. We utilize the SOS Signs of Suicide Prevention Program, A Program of Screening for Mental Health, Inc.
    • Attached is a resource for you, contact info for New Mexico Crisis and Access Line (NMCAL).
    • If you have concerns about your student, do not hesitate to contact their counselor. Call us at 505-890-0343, or access email from our website at vvhs.aps.edu. If your student is in crisis, please call 911 immediately.
    • We raise our campus and community awareness around this very tough topic, in order to save lives. One student assisted is worth every minute in raising that awareness.

 

  • 1 TEAM WINTER SPORTS EVENT, RESCHEDULED – due to a potential District Tournament Volleyball game at VVHS on Thursday, we are moving the 1 Team Event to MONDAY, 11/09/15. Students meet at 4:30 p.m. for activities and dinner, and parents meet at 6:30 p.m. with Principal Valerie Atencio and Athletic Director Ben Brown, followed by meetings with the Winter Sports Coaches.

 

 

Thank you for all you do to support your student and VVHS. GO HAWKS!!

Volcano Vista High School is pleased to announce that we have selected Moji Photography to be our official yearbook photography company.  The owner of Moji, Paul Jew, has over 30 years of experience in serving the yearbook photography needs of Albuquerque schools and they do many things that benefit our school. 

            We strongly encourage you to make an appointment for your Senior Portrait as soon as possible.  Yearbook photos need to be submitted this October and many seniors and parents make the mistake of waiting until the last minute to get this done.  Moji cannot guarantee that they will have any appointments available if you wait until September or October and we cannot guarantee that you will appear in the yearbook if it is submitted past our deadline.

            To reward you for acting soon, Moji is offering several discounts if you are photographed in June or July.  To schedule a “Super Senior Session”, you can go to their website: mojiphoto.com and click Super Senior Days.  Super Senior Sessions are only $15 if you are photographed in June ($30 is their regular price).

            If you have any questions or if you would like to schedule one of their personalized Studio sessions, please call them at 255-6424.  They are also offering significant discounts on their Studio sessions if you get photographed in June.  You can go to mojiphoto.com to download pricelists or to get more information.

 

You Must Be Photographed By Moji

If You Want To Be In The Yearbook.

           

            Do not be misled by promotional offers from other photography companies or studios.  If you want to appear in the Volcano Vista High School Yearbook, you must have your senior portrait taken by Moji.  We appreciate your cooperation in scheduling your Senior Portrait session early.
