GOTCHA! Caught doing GREAT!
VUSD and the Vacaville Chamber of Commerce rolled out the red carpet for some of our best students so they could enjoy a day of fun at STARS Recreation Center in late May. The GOTCHA program recognizes students in middle and high schools who maintain good grades or show improvement throughout the year, stay out of trouble, and attend school regularly. After being welcomed in style by administrators and members of the Vacaville COC, the students spent the day bowling, playing arcade games, and laser tag. A barbecue lunch was included.
