If your child has the book at home that mirrors their favorite character outfit/costume, please have them bring the book in with them to share. It is not mandatory for students to come dressed in character, but are welcomed to participate. Dressing up is optional.


We also do not expect that parents to go out and purchase an additional costume. If you celebrate Halloween and are going to dress up, search online and make the connection to a book character.

Important Information about Village Elementary: Get Involved!

Village Parent and Teacher Organization (PTO):

Please, please become a member of PTO! Without the generous membership donations of time and money, Village would not be the incredible school that it is today! PTO pays for field trips, assemblies and presentations, grade level and teacher funding and school culture building. They host several events throughout the year like the Jog-a-thon, Bingo for Books, and Movie nights! Please check out our Village PTO page for more information and announcements.


Coronado Schools Foundation (CSF):

CSF is the Coronado Schools Foundation and is separate from our Village PTO. CSF raises money for special programs and pathways at Village. Our Visual and Performing Arts (VAPA), Innovation Lab (ILAB), Band and Choir are all paid for by CSF. Without your generous donations, our students would not be provided these opportunities. Please consider signing up for Hive365 to help keep our programs alive and thriving for our students.


Volunteering:

Volunteering will be in full swing. In order to volunteer you must complete the volunteer application. This includes a negative TB test within the last 4 years, no exceptions. Good News: We will have a volunteer TB survey on August 15th from 1-3 pm, at Village Hall. If you plan to volunteer, please come to this event! If you do not come to the event, and plan to volunteer, you will need to have a Dr.'s office prove your negative TB test or have a new negative TB test verification. Please be patient with us as we try to get volunteers on campus ASAP, all the while, following state and county mandates.
