Over 700 kindergarten through fifth grade students at Village Elementary School will participate in musician ‘Meet & Greets’ during their Visual and Performing Arts (VAPA) classes this week.

“I try to bring as much diverse and in-depth content to students as I can. This program adds another layer of interaction, with time to ask questions and make real life connections with music,” said Village Elementary VAPA teacher Cyndi Fuhrman.

The program, a 25 minute live virtual field trip, features an interactive musical performance by a professional musician, an explanation of the instrument, and time for student questions.

For over two decades Village Elementary School has hosted a Jog-A-Thon event for students to help raise money for the school as one of their biggest fundraising events of the year. This year the event will be shaping up a little differently with COVID safety measures in place, but with careful and creative planning from the school and PTO. Students are still very much looking forward to the Jog-A-Thon this coming month.

Charity Edelman, the current president of the PTO for Village Elementary gave me the rundown of what students and families can look forward to this year that differs from years past. “In the past the Jog-A-Thon has been separated by grades and held over one to two days. [This year] we sat down to ask ourselves how we can make it fun and engaging for the kids [in regards to the challenges and restrictions of in-person events]. We had a unique opportunity to brainstorm what else we could incorporate with it.”

Last week I had the incredible opportunity to sit in on two Zoom calls between civil rights activist and icon, Ruby Bridges, and students of Village Elementary. Village’s Library Media Technician Amy Statezny, and Principal Dr. Heidi Bergener, were able to arrange the event as they planned for their annual Read Across America presentation and tie curriculum around Bridges’ experience leading up to the event.

“Dr. Bergener, Tanya White, our assistant principal, and I met in January to plan our Zoom presentations for Read Across America,” Statezny explained. “…Last school year, we were able to have special guest readers who were leaders in our community read to each classroom. Since we knew this school year the presentations would have to be virtual, we wanted to make it extra special.”

My first encounter with Bill Cass was before I even moved to Coronado. At the time, he was the assistant principal at Village Elementary School, and provided my family with a tour of the school in 2005. I appreciated his soft-spoken, considered manner, and his obvious connection with both students and staff. I knew our children would be in good hands.

When he departed Village Elementary in 2007 to lead Silver Strand Elementary as

The annual Village Elementary Jog-a-thon is quickly approaching. Make your contributions this year via the internet by visiting!

The Parent Teacher Organization at Village Elementary school sponsors a Jog-a-thon each year to raise funds for programs at the school. It is always a two day event with grades 1-5 participating one day and filling the track at Niedermeyer Field and students at the Early Childhood Development Center (ECDC) populating the grass field adjacent to their school another day.

This year the ECDC students will jog Wednesday, Jan. 21, 2015 at 10:30 a.m.

Students at Village Elementary will jog Thursday, Jan. 22, 2015 at the following times:

• Grades 2 and 3: 9 a.m.

• Grade 1: 10:30 a.m.

• Grades 4 and 5: 1 p.m.

The Jog-a-thon is a favorite event of students at the school. It is a FUNdraiser, for certain, as the students love to get outside, enjoy the great weather, and exercise with their friends and classmates, running around the track while music fills the air. It’s also fairly popular with the parents. Volunteers are always welcome and in the past have helped label water bottles (generously donated by Boney’s Bayside Market), count laps, and gently squirt children with a spray bottle as they jog or walk around the track (when the weather is warm).
