You Matter at VAES!
We want to cordially invite you to come to our Curriculum Night on Tuesday, September 20th. You may drop your child(ren) off at one of the following locations: Kinder - Library, 1st/2nd Grades - Cafeteria and 3rd/4th Grades - Gym at 5:45 p.m. We will have guest readers, games and Boosterthon stations for your children to enjoy. You will then have choices of three sessions to attend from 6:00 - 7:30 p.m. Our theme is An Amazing Race, The Keys to an Amazing School Year. You will hear from your child's teacher about grade specific information. You will also have the opportunity to hear subject specific information about reading, math, technology, etc. from which to choose. We look forward to "An Amazing" night of learning with you.
Sign ups for UIL teams are currently underway. You should have received an informational note in the Thursday folders. Any 2nd - 4th grader may sign up to try out for a team. The lists will be posted in grade level hallways. Encourage your child to give these academic contests a try.
Progress reports went home yesterday. Please be sure to sign it and return it to school if you did not do so today. Thanks!
Thank you for helping your children get acclimated to the new school year. Thank you for providing time to read with them and to discuss their learning at home. That will make all the difference in the success they have this year!
