Dear Virtual School Family,
Here is a fun and engaging way to teach your children about how the government works and show your support for virtual public education: join other virtual school students and parents for Virtual Public Schools Capitol Day on Tuesday, March 7, 2017!
Every year, Oregon virtual public school families travel to the State Capitol in Salem to express their support for virtual public education. Capitol Day is an opportunity to thank our legislative champions, show support for virtual public schools and talk to legislators about protecting this important education option. Students will have the opportunity to participate in educational activities and visit their state legislators in the Capitol Building.
I hope you will join my family and many other virtual public school families in Salem on March 7. Please click here to register now.
