Interested in helping a VCS student?


 Ms. Eyler in our middle school was recently provided with a subscription for electronic middle school level books that also include audio for helping struggling readers.  The books can be downloaded to an IPod Touch for the students.  

If you have upgraded a device at home and have an IPod Touch OR an Iphone that is no longer used, we could really use the donation of your old device to be able to take advantage of these books.  Contact Ms. Eyler or Ms. Carroll if you are interested in this project - and THANKS!!   
PARENTS, K-8:  

If you did not pick up a letter with your login for the parent portal into PowerSchool,
you may pick it up in person from the office.
Because we always need to protect your child's privacy,
we must ask that you do this in person.  Thank you!
