Dear Ventura Park Families,

Principal Holly SchauerOn behalf of the staff of Ventura Park Elementary School, I am happy to welcome you and your family to the 2020-21 school year! Although this year looks different than any other year, we are dedicated to providing your child(ren) a memorable, interactive, engaging distance learning experience with the hope of eventually being able to safely return to school in person. 

We are in a time not only of public health uncertainty but also of great social unrest. As a principal, I am committed to ensuring that Ventura Park is not complicit in perpetuating systemic racism. In solidarity with our community members, Ventura Park staff will continue to promote justice by listening, learning, growing and improving our educational practices to create an environment in which every child knows they have the same opportunity to flourish unhindered by prejudice or bias.  This is the moment for everyone to be thoughtful allies, critical thinkers and problem solvers. Ventura Park community, we hear you and value you. “We are Douglas,”  and we are so very proud of every single student, individual and family in our community.

We will send regular informational emails to all VP families who have an email address on file.  If you are not receiving school and district emails, please call the Ventura Park office at 503-256-6508 to provide your correct email address. You many also find us online— Instagram: venturaparkschool, Twitter: @VP_Vikings, School Website: Families will receive a weekly electronic school newsletter beginning in October. Ventura Park has a supportive PTO (Parent Teacher Organization) with a current Facebook page at:

Let’s work together to make this year a great year – ensuring all students learn, grow and thrive at Ventura Park! Go Vikings!
