Van Brunt Elementary

December 2016 Newsletter

Dear Van Brunt Families,

I hope everyone enjoyed the Thanksgiving holiday! This can be such a busy time of year and it can be challenging to keep the good routines going! We appreciate your continued support in helping to make your child's time at Van Brunt happy and successful. We are so thankful for the positive relationships with families!

Students are excited to share the special things they are doing over the holidays. I am hearing so much about time spent with family and enjoying the "little things". Hanging out with pets, playing games, and reading with family members are some of the highlights...sleeping late was also a treat for some! The time we spend together is so important and meaningful.

I continue to be so proud of the what I see every day at Van Brunt. The hard work and dedication of our students, staff, and families is evident in so many ways. Our fabulous PTO provides great opportunities for our students, our staff positively connects with students each day, our students give their best, and our families are the cornerstone of their child's success.

Thank you for making Van Brunt a great place to work and learn! Have an enjoyable holiday season!

Van Brunt Veterans Day Program

Van Brunt celebrated Veterans Day by having an assembly which included creating a "Wall of Fame" where students wrote the name of service men and women that they personally knew, Mr. Appel shared his experience of serving in the Army, and students thanked our veterans with cards and high fives. Thank you to all of our veterans for your service!
