Parents, Guardians, Students, and Community Members,
Welcome back to Venus High School for the 2019-20 school year! My name is Karen Woodworth and I am thrilled to be the new principal at VHS! I have been in education for 28 years, all of them at the high school level. I spent the last 3 years as the Academic Associate Principal at Burleson High School, and I am excited to work with our VHS learning team to provide our students the very best instruction possible! Our goal is to constantly evolve, improve, and strive to make VHS a welcoming, vibrant school that provides an academically challenging, yet encouraging environment for our students. With the addition of built-in academic supports for students during the school day, VHS is continuing to improve the rigor and relevance of the knowledge and skills being taught so we can better prepare our students for life after high school. I welcome your feedback, and look forward to a year filled with positive energy.
I strongly believe that our faculty and staff are one of the strongest in the area. When you combine the knowledge and engagement of our staff with our student’s desire and commitment, we are sure to accomplish great things!
We want all parents, guardians, community members, students, and staff to know and celebrate all that happens at VHS. Through the regular use of the Venus ISD web site at http://www.venusisd.net/, and the link to Venus High School’s web page, http://vhs.venusisd.net/, parents have access to a wealth of resources to assist in keeping everyone informed. One of the resources available is the Skyward Parental Access Portal that permits parents and students to access grades and class assignments for each subject on your child’s schedule. Just click on “For Parents” then “Skyward Access Parent Portal” to obtain further information.
