Science Vocabulary at VRE

This year, VRE will start participating in Science vocabulary words of the week. These words will be discussed during the week over the announcements and will be posted on the Science board across from the Cafeteria. Make sure you ask your child about the new words they are learning and discuss their connections to science!

PBL Corner

During the first week, students created class expectations for the grade level. They created rules for the classroom, restroom, technology use, hallways, recess, and the cafeteria. The rules will be posted as reminders for the students.


Be on the lookout for our next PBL, coming up soon!

Snack

Your child is welcome to bring a healthy snack and a water bottle for snack time during the day.


Our classrooms are strictly NUT FREE. Please make sure you do not send anything containing nuts!
