Progress Reports

Don't forget to log into the Home Access Center after 7 pm on June 13 to see your child's progress report for the third trimester (and entire school year).

Please remember to save or print a copy for your records BEFORE JULY 4, when the Home Access Center takes the progress reports offline for the 2017-2018 school year.

Volunteers Needed - Early School Year Events

Volunteers are needed for several events/activities early in the school year next year. The committee chairs who run these events are looking for people who MAY BE INTERESTED in helping with the following. By contacting the chairperson, you are NOT making a commitment, but rather enabling the chairperson to send you email with more information over the summer.

First Grade Lunch Helpers: During the first week of school, first graders need a little extra help learning lunchroom routines at lunch time (approx. 11:15-11:45). This is a great way to get a peek into your child's first week of school! Please contact Colleen Kurtz at if you would like more information and may be able to volunteer.

Pod Parents: During the first week of school, teachers need some extra help getting their classrooms, bulletin boards, and school materials ready to go. Parents are invited to sign up for various grades/time slots to work on these tasks for the teachers. Please contact Steph Felton at if you would like more information or may be interested in volunteering.

Back to School Bash: A fun way for families to get together and celebrate the beginning of the school year. Friday evening, September 7, 2018 (rain date Sept. 14). Please contact Meg Dick at if you are interested in getting more information about the event and what help is needed.

Summer Reading Program - IVPL

Mrs. Lightstone is encouraging all students to enroll in the Indian Valley Public Library Summer Learning Club program. This summer, IVPL is including different areas of learning beyond reading! Keep your children busy and engaged this summer by signing up, beginning on Friday, June 1. Vernfield will not be participating in the Scholastic Summer Reading this year.

The brochure for the Summer Learning Club program for completed grades K-5 can be found online here.

Links for IVPL Summer programs for preschoolers and teens can be found on the IVPL Summer Learning website.
