Have a great weekend!

Thank you,

Room Parents

If you would like to be the head room parent for your child's homeroom, please complete this form. Please know that while we love having all volunteers on campus, we're only allowing one head room and one co-room parent per class. If you're not the head room parent or the co-room parent for your child's homeroom, you can still volunteer and support them. Thank you!

**If we have multiple room parents per class, we will just randomly draw for each homeroom.

Chess Club

While we're not offering free, teacher led clubs this semester, we will be offering them starting in January. However, we did choose to allow a company, coordinated through the district, to provide chess club. We felt like this is not a club we typically are well versed on, so we wanted a experienced group to handle it. This paid club does start soon and is on Wednesdays. If you choose to sign your child up, it will not impact them being able to participate in a free, teacher led club next semester. Those clubs will not be held on Wednesdays. The form went home a few weeks ago. Below is a copy. There are extras in the front foyer at Vaughan.
