We are having our first meeting of the year on . This is a great way to learn about what PTSA is working on and what parents can do to volunteer at our school.

March of Dimes Fundraiser
Valle Crucis School will be raising money for the March of Dimes from September 25 - October 10. Students are encouraged to bring spare change and small bills to drop in the collection boxes located in their classrooms. Additional collection boxes will be located in the front office and cafeteria. The class that raises the most money will earn an ice cream party. All students in the winning classroom will be part of a drawing to win 2 tickets to an ASU football game. In addition the classroom that raises the most money in Watauga County will receive a class party hosted by a local restaurant.
VCS Spelling Bee Winner
The VCS school-wide spelling bee was held on September 24th. Sixth-grade student, Tyler, spelled "hedgehog" correctly after several rounds of intense competition to win the spelling bee! Tyler will go on to represent VCS at the county spelling bee on October 10th. Congratulations Tyler and best of luck at the county spelling bee!

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!!
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!
