Every volunteer at Vienna-Finley needs a completed and processed background check prior to being able to volunteer. Since we have so many amazing volunteers, the number gets large and takes a while to process, so we collect these in April each year to make the process as easy as possible for you. If you or any family member plan to volunteer at school in any capacity, examples include PTO, field trips, Watch DOG, Hero, classroom parties or any other time, please complete and return a background form on or by May 15th. These will be processed over the summer and should be ready to go when school begins in August. Please fill out a form for everyone who thinks they may volunteer, because the process takes several weeks and we wouldn't want anyone to miss an event due to the lack of a background check. The form is attached for you to print as many times as you need, or feel free to pick some up at the VFES office.
IMPORTANT REMINDER: Students are not allowed to bring toys/items from home to play with during recess or to sell. We appreciate your help with this.
PTO Popcorn sales will be going to the Humane Society this month, so help out 2 causes at once! Your local Humane Society AND your love of popcorn Fridays!
Two great things we love are Vienna-Finley and Chillers! They are teaming up on the first Wednesday of each month. Just mention Vienna-Finley when ordering (all day) and 20% of your sale will go to help our school. Thanks for helping Vienna-Finley and enjoy your Chillers!
Please keep those Box Tops coming! We need you to continue to send in Box Tops! Our next competition will end on Friday, March 16. The class with the most collected will win an ice cream party!
The process of developing next year’s class rosters will be underway by the beginning of May. Building equitable grade level sections is important, and many factors are considered when making placement decisions. To the greatest extent possible, classes are balanced with regard to students’ ability, achievement, special needs, gender, and ethnicity. Parents/guardians know their child better than anyone and they’re encouraged to share pertinent insight before teachers are assigned. In addition, a system is in place to enable parents/guardians, with a valid educational reason, to request a specific teacher for their child. Please note the following guidelines if you plan to make such a request.
Request forms must be submitted to the building principal before the deadline of March 16. Forms can be obtained from the school office.
Only requests involving valid educational reasons will be approved.
Parents must provide details about their student’s specific needs along with reasons they believe the requested teacher is uniquely qualified to meet those needs.
Determination letters will be mailed to parents.
A process is in place to enable parents to appeal denied requests.
You can also download the new Scott County School District 2 app! It's a great way to stay connected!
IMPORTANT: BACKGROUND CHECKS
We have a great new way to keep in touch at VFES! EventLink!
