VPS News

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.

Grandparents Day

Please mark your calendar for our upcoming grandparents day. This special day is on Thursday, October 10, 2019. We will have noon dismissal.

Fall Festival

On Saturday, October 19, 2019, we will have our fall festival from 3:00 p.m. until 7:00 p.m. We hope you can join us for this fun event!

PTO Meeting

Our PTO will have an evening meeting on Thursday, October 3 at 5:15 p.m. We hope you can join us! The PTO is still looking for a parent volunteer to chair our spring event. If you love party planning, this just might be the thing for you! Please reach out if you might be interested or would like more information.

Fee for Our Yearbook

For many years, our students designed our yearbook as part of their elective class in middle school. With the restructuring of the electives program, Yearbook Club will now become an after school activity requiring a paid staff position to provide student supervision and project facilitation. As a result, we will no longer offer yearbooks free-of-charge. We anticipate a per-book cost of approximately $75. More details to come!

GALA Fundraiser Parking Spots

Please note that we reserve certain parking spots in the lower parking lot, as part of our annual GALA fundraiser. We only permit designated families to use these spots. Thank you for your understanding!

Arrive On Time

Please remember the importance of arriving at school on time each morning, before 7:55 a.m. Frequent tardies and absences adversely affect learning and are disruptive to the regular school routine. We appreciate your cooperation!

Chess Club

Chess club, with Mrs. Whitenack, begins on Friday, September 6, and runs every Friday from 3:00 to 4:00 p.m. in room 17. All skills levels welcome. Tournaments held at the end of the season. Cost is $150 for the trimester or $400 for the entire year! Please bring a check to the front office.

Powerschool

As a result of some negative parent-feedback about Powerschool's user-friendliness last year, we are making a few changes to the platform. Once these modifications are completed, we will distribute log-in details for new families. For returning families, if you have any log in issues, please email John Black.
