Donations for the Upcoming VFES Fall Festival

October 21-25: 2-liter drinks
October 28-November 1: cakes, pies, and desserts
The class with the most donations overall will win a pizza party from the PTO.
Additional Information about Field Trip Shirts
Teachers will keep the shirts at VFES so students will have them as needed throughout the school year. Teachers will also label the shirts so students can wear the same shirt for each event. Students will then bring the shirts home on the last day of this school year.
PTO volunteers will wash the shirts with free and clear detergent at school.
Upcoming PTO Meetings, Events, and Box Tops
Please mark your calendars for these upcoming PTO events:
The fall festival will be November 1st.
Even though the format has changed from cutting out box tops to scanning receipts for digital box tops, Vienna-Finley would still like you to participate in the box top fundraiser throughout the school year. If you have any questions about box tops, please contact the VFES office or Tammy Wolf, PTO president.

The Kona Ice truck will be at VFES during the afternoon of September 20th. Please refer to the top section of this week's newsletter for additional information about pricing options.
On Friday, September 27th, students who donate $1 can wear a hat during school.
We plan to resume popcorn sales on Friday, October 4th.
