Your donations at work - Field Trip costs

The Vernfield Home and School Association (HSA) recently voted to increase the student field trip allowance from $15 per student to $20 per student!

The hope is that this increase will offset some of the rising transportation costs and keep the cost to families as affordable as possible.

If your family is struggling with the cost of a field trip, please reach out to Mrs. Wagner,, in the guidance office for additional support.

Thank you to all Vernfield families for supporting the fundraising efforts of the HSA!

Committee Spotlight - Senior Hawks Electric Evening

The Vernfield HSA is excited to announce a new event coming soon for our 3-5th grade students, featuring the DaVinci Science Center!

Representatives from the center will be coming to our auditorium for a fun presentation about electricity. The presentation will be followed by a glow in the dark dance party and fun static activities for all the kids to enjoy.

More information on the date and time will provided soon.

Interested in volunteering for this event? Please contact the Committee Chair, Lauren McShea, at for more information.
