Walk-A-Thon (Wookie-A-Thon) FUN!

Vienna-Finley held the annual Walk-A-Thon on Friday, October 21st. This year, the theme was a Wookie-A-Thon, which went with the Star Wars Accelerated Reader theme. Students raised funds to pay for field trips and special awards, participated in prize parties, and then celebrated during the Walk-A-Thon. The VFES PTO organized fun activities and games, the Title 1 department created the route and had exciting stations throughout the walk and the playground team had a music and dance station for the kids. VFES Watch Dogs and Heros came to help make the event spectacular and Mr. Travis Miles provided a parking lot shuttle. We had a lot of fun with all of our friends and family. Thank you to each of the countless people who made the celebration so wonderful.

Basketball Has Begun at VFES!

With the start of a new basketball program which includes kindergarten through fifth grades, students in every school are gearing up for an exciting season. Students on the team coached by Matt Pearcy began running drills and learning the fundamentals of basketball this week along with many other teams. Games will be held at Scottsburg Middle School on Saturdays, beginning the last weekend in October.

Girl's Basketball Sign Up will go out in late November.

Congratulations Mrs. Asdell!

During a recent staff meeting at Vienna-Finley elementary school, previous recipient, Lindsey Cazares, nominated Mrs. Holly Asdell for the September “This Bud’s for You” award. In her presentation to Mrs. Asdell, Mrs. Cazares stated the following in honor of Mrs. Asdell and her contributions to Vienna-Finley, " The person I am nominating for the “This Bud’s for You” award is someone who has been the biggest asset to me as an educator. I also feel she is a huge asset to our district and our school. Holly Asdell serves as a great mentor and role model

​ ​

for our students with her positive attitude and fun personality. Not only do students look forward to the monthly lessons she teaches, but they beg to go to her office because of the positive, stress-free atmosphere that she has created and that radiates off of her. I admire the patience and empathy that she has for all of our students and she is willing to go above and beyond what is expected of her as our school counselor. She takes an active role in being involved in the success of our students and our school. Days when she isn’t at VFES there is certainly a part of us that is missing. On a more personal level, Holly has been an excellent resource for ideas when I have needed help with a student or when I have had concerns on a student’s well-being or success. She is always willing to help or to provide the resources elsewhere when she can’t help. Our students, staff, and school are so lucky to have her, and I am a better educator having worked alongside her."

Congratulations to Mrs. Asdell! Pictured are Mrs. Holly Asdell and Mrs. Lindsey Cazares
