Spring pictures are Thursday, April 2nd. Watch for information to come home early next week! You will have the option to choose your favorite style on the form. Then, send the form back to your child's teacher. On picture day, your child's picture will be taken but there is no money due at that time. The photos will be developed and sent home. If you like them, then, you can purchase them.

PTA Meeting - Dr. Frataccia

Please be sure to join us on April 7th at 6:00 p.m. Dr. Ric Frataccia will be our guest. He will be available to answer your questions about the Valparaiso Community Schools.


Information was sent home last week regarding the Variety show. The date needed to be changed due to the Harlem Wizards holding their event at the High School on the same night. Therefore, the official date for the Variety show is FRIDAY, MAY 1st. Please make a note of the new date on your calender. New sheets will come home next week with updated rehearsal information. Remember all acts should be entertaining and appropriate for an elementary audience.

Be sure to mark your calendars for this exciting event!


Our lost and found, located on a table in the cafeteria is overflowing! If your child is missing anything, please have them search for it before spring break. Everything will go to Goodwill over break. Thank you!

Box Tops

Please continue to send in your Box Tops! We use the money collected from them for various activities for the students! Every little bit helps! Thank you
