You Matter at VAES!
We want to thank everyone for their generosity in fulfilling the needs of our Christmas angels. Thank you for your willingness to serve the needs within our community.
We hope to see everyone tonight for the PTA Family Movie Night and the showing of Inside Out. The event begins at 6:30 p.m. Bring your children with you as we enjoy time together!
Next week, our 2nd - 4th graders will take their quarterly assessments according to the schedule listed below this section. Please encourage your children to use the strategies their teachers have taught them and to try their very best.
We want to thank our PTA and our volunteers for providing in special ways to our teachers and staff this week and next week. We have volunteers who cover for our teachers to allow them to have a special lunch bunch time off campus as well as allowing staff an extra long Christmas luncheon together. We love our volunteers!
Also, please note that December 18th is an early release day on the school calendar. School will be dismissed at 1:05 on Friday.
Keep reading with your children each night and discussing their learning with them. We appreciate your support in your child's education.
You Matter at VAES!

Our VAULT students created this newspaper in November covering details from different happenings around campus last month. They are building on information gathered from last year's field trips in this real-life writing activity.
This form is now available on our website. If you have already returned a paper copy, you do not need to complete this form. However, if you have not done that and would like to volunteer on campus and attend field trips, please click on this link.
