Summer 2016

Summer Wishes

It is hard to believe that the 2015-2016 school year is over. We would like to thank you for all of the support that you've lent to our VES team, as well as the support that you continually give to your students at home. We wish you the best, as you enjoy your family and every moment of the beautiful summer days ahead. We wish our fourth graders the best, as they move on to LMS and look forward to the return of our current third graders as fourth graders. We will see you for the start of the 2016-2017 school year on September 6th!

Farewell to Mrs. Bidetti

After fourteen years as a secretary at Village Elementary School, Mrs. Bidetti has decided to retire. She has been a fixture of our school and we appreciate all that she has done to keep our school running smoothly. She is off to begin her retirement life in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina! We wish you all the best in your new adventures and we'll miss you, Mrs. Bidetti!

General 2016-2017 Supply List for Rising Third Graders

Dear Incoming Third Grade Students and Families,


In an effort to make your supply shopping easier, the third grade team has come up with a list of supplies that you can begin to look for. We have chosen these items carefully and feel that they enhance our instructional program. Toward the end of the summer, additional information regarding specific items needed for your classroom will be made available on our website.



  • 24 sharpened pencils (non-mechanical pencils)
  • Colored pencils (keep to no more than 24 colors)
  • 4 rolls of Scotch tape in individual plastic dispensers
  • 4 dry erase markers
  • 1 pencil box (standard plastic rectangular one)
  • 1 highlighter
  • 4 Post-it note pads
  • 4 composition notebooks
  • 4 glue sticks
  • Comfortable headphones or earbuds in a Ziplock bag with your name on it for personal use


As you shop for a backpack, please DO NOT buy one with wheels. Your choice of a backpack must fit easily into your cubby in the classroom.


Remember to be on the lookout in August for a letter from your classroom teacher with some additional supplies as well as a warm welcome to VES.


Enjoy your summer and we will see you in September!


Sincerely,

The Third Grade Team
