September in the Library

Here's what students were experiencing this month when they came to the library.


4th & 5th Grades looked at the "You Wouldn't Want to Be..." series. This interactive series for kids looks at the gory and dark side of life in history.


3rd Grade students explored non-fiction books about the Maya, Inca and Aztec cultures.


1st & 2nd Grade students started reading a book series called "Choose Your Own Adventure." The kids get to choose where the story goes.


Kindergarten explored some of the non-fiction areas of the library.

FFO Corner

Coming up on the calendar is the 2nd annual Halloween Trunk or Treat on Friday, October 26. Look for info on how to sign up for a Trunk or Treat space next month.


Thanks to everyone who attended the FFO meeting yesterday. If you were unable to attend but would like to hear Dr. Kamerzell’s presentation, the video will be uploaded to the FFO website, www.vvffo.org within the next few days and you may view it there. The next FFO General meeting will be Tuesday, October 23rd at 8:30.


Bobcat families, we would love to show our teachers and staff how much they are appreciated by keeping the staff lounge stocked. Feel free to sign up for something on the list or bring the item of your choice. You can bring your items in a labeled box to the front office whenever it is convenient for you.
