Messages from Miss Angela

Thank you to all the families that participated in our Pink-Out Day activities. Together, we raised $4660 for Michelle's Place and $4660 for CJ's Smile. It is fantastic to see the outpouring of generosity and to know our VAP school community cares about these causes.

This week is Red Ribbon Week. This year's theme is "Celebrate life. Live drug-free." See the graphic below for spirit day info. Wednesday is Career Day. Please reach out to the teachers directly if you'd like to come in and give a presentation.

This Friday, October 28th we will host our Annual VAP Family Pumpkin Showcase. (see info below) We hope to have 100% participation.

Mr. Manuel, our campus maintenance man, has retired to take care of his health. Mr. Manuel has been a hardworking, kind and gentle member of our staff for 20+ years and we are sad to see him go. If you would like to drop off a card or gift in the office, there will be a basket marked for him.
