School Supplies for 23/24

TK through 5th Grade

If you didn't get the chance to purchase school supplies we highly encourage you to do so. These are utilized throughout the school year in every classroom, by every student.

VG TK-5th 23/24 Supply List

*Families who ordered through 1st student, your student's supplies will be delivered directly to the school and to your child's classroom indicating your child's name. So this is one thing you no longer need to worry about :)

VG Cozy Corner

Would you like to make our vision a reality?

We are transforming our Technology Lab in our Library into our VG COZY CORNER for our students. We have overhauled this space and made it a location where students can enjoy lunch recess for those who would prefer an indoor location filled with books, games, and more. Our teachers will also utilize this space throughout our school days!

This is a great opportunity to clean out some toys, legos, magna-tiles, small animal toys, dolls, small bookshelves, bins, and more.

The goal is for this space to be donation based :) WIN-WIN- you clean out and we create our vision!

*We will begin collecting items the week of 7/24/23 and email those who responded to the Google form to let you know if your items will or will not work in our updated Library space!

We will continue to look through this GOOGLE FORM for those who want to contribute at this time or in the future!
