Principal's Message

Dear Falcon Families,

We hope that your summer break is off to a fantastic start--especially now that the sun has made an appearance! We are looking forward to summer adventures too. Mr. Jerdee is looking forward to some time reading and sailing with his family. Mr. Uhler is taking his daughter on a college visit, heading to Boston for a leadership institute, and hoping to climb a mountain or two.

As we set off on some time away from school, we want you to know how much we appreciate the care and support you've given the Blue Crew this year. We are grateful to serve such an amazing community. We also want to give you a quick update. Please see the items below about school supplies, Back to School Night, summer meals, and much more. Also, check out our Facebook page for updates throughout July and August, including our new weekly Falcon Feature.

We encourage you to get your kids outside and play as much as possible this summer and continue to be ready with them each night. We look forward to seeing you in late August.

Make it a great day to be a Falcon!

Adam Uhler, Principal

Wade Jerdee, Assistant Principal

Field Day

Thanks to Mrs. Burhenn's organization and the support of 40 volunteers, Field Day was full of joy despite the liquid sunshine.

School Supplies

In order to provide some relief from back-to-school shopping - we are asking Victor Falls Elementary Families to contribute a $25 supply donation to cover the cost of school supplies. Families will be able to pay the $25 donation in August by logging into Skyward. All students should be prepared for school with a backpack, refillable water bottle, lunchbox, and headphones or earbuds.
