From student shout-outs to the exciting things that happened at our last school event or a great parenting article, we’ll post it all here for you. Please be sure to visit this page often so you’re always well informed about what’s happening at VPS.

Honor Roll Flag

On Monday, November 18 we will hold our honor roll flag. We will acknowledge 7th and 8th-grade honor roll students, AR rewards for kindergarten through 8th, and perfect attendance for pre-school through 8th. All students must wear full dress uniform. Congratulations to all of these students in advance!

Board of Trustees

Our Board of Trustees (school board) currently consists of nine members, including two current parents. The board meets regularly with the purpose of:

  1. Providing financial oversight.
  2. Developing and overseeing the school's strategic plan.
  3. Facilitating community relations for purposes of marketing and fundraising.

Board members serve three-year terms (which can be renewed). Current board members nominate and approve new board members each spring. If you have an interest in future openings, please contact Mr. Black

Report Cards & Parent/Teacher Conferences

Please note that we will email report cards to families in the coming days. If you do not receive your child's report, please be sure to inform Mr. Black. Also, if you have not already, please be sure to sign-up for a time to meet your child's teacher at next week's parent/teacher conferences held November 20 through November 22.

All School Winter Concert

Mark your calendars for our all school winter concert. This event is on Thursday, December 12 at 6:00 p.m. in the Clock Auditorium at Redlands High School. We hope to see you there! All students need to wear full dress uniforms.

Planning for the Future

We are currently coming to the end of our five–year (Vision 2020) strategic plan, developed in 2015. Accordingly, work has begun on our next five–year plan to take the school through 2025. We outline highlights of this new plan in our November 8 ROAR newsletter. Each week we will explore one facet of the proposed plan. Please don’t hesitate to share your ideas with Mr. Black. Everyone must have a voice in the school’s future!

Inland Harvest Food Drive

Mark your calendars for the Inland Harvest Food Drive. We will pick up all items on November 18 at the morning flag. We appreciate your participation.
