Message From the Principal:
Welcome to the Vidal M. Treviño Magnet School Learning Experience…
We have reached the half-point of the school year in our beautiful and new state-of-the-art facility and are very excited that we are now fully immersed in the spring semester. We had a wonderfully successful fall semester and our students achieved many successes not only academically but, in their creative and artistic endeavors as well. We achieved high marks in the state mandated assessments and our students excelled in all areas of the arts realm as well, especially, in the areas of music, choral music and art. Theatre Arts, the communication department and our literary magazine “Tapestry” will be showcasing this spring semester.
A focused effort in preparation for our upcoming STAAR Exams is in full-swing and we know that our students will, once again, achieve high marks, as has been the tradition at VMT. We are providing daily tutorials and End-Of-Course Academies to ensure that our VMT students will continue to stay competitive and achieve success. The team-approach and collaborative effort embraced amongst our faculty continues to be the driving force behind our successes.
We are looking forward to a spring semester filled with performances and events. We will have exhibits, the annual VMT Showcase, the SoundTown Gala; the VMT karaoke student show-downs; Art and Photography Exhibits, the unveiling of the literary magazine; Dance Recital, “Culturas” a joint-collaborative dance and music project with LCC; The Multi-Media Film festival, Publication of our newspaper, “The Magnet Tribune”; individual student recitals and a number of guest concerts. Of special interest, and one event that we are enormously proud of and anxiously anticipating, is our first full-scale musical, “Charlie Brown”, to be performed in early summer.
In addition, we will be hosting the TAMU-Corpus Christi full Orchestra; the area One-Act Play Clinics; and will be providing our fine arts students, master clinics by renowned artists and performers. Clinics scheduled are master clinic in Flamenco Dance by renowned dancer, Ileana Gomez; Voice master clinic by renowned mezza soprano, Clara Chapa; Brass master clinic by Dr. Andy Smith, Dr. John Shanks: Clinics by concert pianists, percussionists, cellist and many other recognized artists.
It is a delight to warmly extend an invitation to our parents, friends and community to visit our school of communications and fine arts and to partake of the many events and artistic activities planned this semester. The Vidal M. Trevino is more than a school….it is an experience!
For the Betterment of the Arts,
Dr. Martha E. Villarreal
