You Matter at VAES!
Our Watch D.O.G.S. Matter at VAES!
There are some individual pics of Dads with Students on the PTA Facebook page.
We are so excited to begin this second semester at VAES! We have had a good week getting back into the swing of things. Thank you for helping your children get acclimated to the school schedule once again.
I wanted to remind you how important you are in the success of your children at school. Most of all, please continue to read with your child each night. Encourage your children to use the reading strategies their teachers have taught them. Ask questions about the stories and articles that they are reading. These discussions help to build comprehension skills and confidence in reading. We thank you for supporting us in your child's education as we know it makes all the difference in your child's achievement level.
Please see the save the date information listed below. You will want to clear your calendar to bring your child to school the evening of Tuesday, January 26th. It's going to be a fantastic event!
Also, please do not miss the information on the Endowed Scholarship being set up in memory of the Small children further below in the newsletter.

With an endowed scholarship once the requirements are met, the foundation will be able to give a scholarship each year without having to continuously raise the money yearly. Karen and her family will be able to present this scholarship and continue to keep the memory of her children alive for years to come. If you could help with any amount at all, it will be GREATLY appreciated.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Sarah Coleman at 903-816-4321 or email@example.com.
