Mark Your calendar - Picture Retake Day - 11/15

Picture packages are coming home this week - be sure to check your child’s backpack! If you haven't ordered, it's not too late. We're sending home slips printed with your child's picture and order code, so you can still order online.

Looking for lost items? If you recognize it, come and get it!!

With the weather beginning to change, we have a lot of discarded clothes and other items, next time you are visiting VV. Take a look in our Lost & Found located behind the stage in the MPR.

October in our Library

This month Kindergarteners were learning all about fall, pumpkins, the alphabet, numbers & Halloween. 1st grade were reading Halloween books and the 2nd grade read a mixture of Halloween and Map books. Greeks & Romans + non fiction books were keeping our 3rd graders occupied. While our 4th grade discovered realistic fiction. Finally, our 5th grade were reading fiction chapter books.


We would like to send out a huge THANK YOU to our FFO for buying books for our library from our Book Fair. Thanks to everyone who supported our school thru their book purchases!
