5th Grade Promotion

This year the 5th grade promotion ceremony will take place on Thursday 5/27, 8:45 am to 9:45 am.

We are asking parents please do not enter our parking lot any earlier than 8.40 am. You do not want to get caught up in the morning drop off traffic! Please park in the north lot. You are also welcome to park along the bus lane. There is no need to arrive early to get a "good seat". As you know this event will be run differently this year and you will be split into groups by your child's homeroom - There is plenty of room for everyone.

Fifth Grade parents were sent an email invitation with details.

Return of Chromebooks to VV

We are just over a week away from the end of the school year and we need your help!! As of today we still have 34 chromebooks signed out to students who are now attending in person. We are asking that you return these ASAP. We have to get them ready for the 2021/2022 school year.

For returning these Chromebooks, we are requesting that you drop off the Chromebook that you signed out to the front office ASAP. You are welcome to drop off during morning arrival or at parent pick up in the PM. You can also bring it to the front office between the hours of 9 am and 2 pm, or you can send it with your child who can drop by the front office and hand it in.

Please make sure to put a note/tape with your child's name on the computer.

If your child attends school in person, but is participating in band, orchestra or choir remotely, please send the computer after the last class which should be this week.

Reminder for our remote students: you will return the computers on Wednesday, May 26 between 1-2pm. Your child's remote teacher will be there to receive the computers and give an in person farewell. There will be sessions on the last two days of school that your child can join from another device. Check your email for more details.


We thank you for your support. We must have all of the computers before the last day of school.
