Spring has arrived and with it the promise of longer daylight hours and warmer days ahead!
At our last PFA meeting we discussed recent activities and some upcoming events as well. Please be sure to read through the PFA Meeting Minutes posted in our virtual backpack. Right now we are asking families to begin sorting through any children's books they may have at home that could be donated to our 5th Grade Used Book Sale. More information will be following, but for now take a look around your home and see which books are just waiting to be read and enjoyed by someone else. At the meeting, I presented on our Spring 2018 PARCC results. I am very proud of the students, staff and families who have created the learning community we have in place here at Village. If you were not able to attend the daytime presentation, I will be presenting again on Wednesday evening, April 3rd at 6:45pm in the APR followed by conducting another HIB training for parents volunteering in school events, like our June Fun Day.
During the week of March 25 - March 29th, Mrs. Martin will be the substitute principal. I know the school community will warmly welcome her back. I will be back in school on April 1st, just in time for all the April Fool's jokes.
On Wednesday, March 27, the Board of Education will be recognizing the District's Teachers of the Year at 6pm at High School North. We congratulate Mr. Hutchinson who we are very proud to have represent the outstanding Village teaching staff.
Thank you for the donations that have been coming in for the Lt. Dennis Zilinski Foundation! Our collection will be ongoing through March 29th. Take a look in the virtual backpack to see which items we have been asked to collect.
Please be sure to check this website weekly and link to the school's Google calendar below to always be in the know!
Students are to be in their classrooms ready to the start the day at 8:55am. If your child is going to be absent from school, please be sure to call in his/her absence prior to the start of the school day. You can leave a message on the school's voicemail, following the prompts to the absence line, 24 hours a day. When your child returns to school, please send in a note with the reason for the absence. All notes into school are to include your child's first and last name, classroom teacher's name, message, and your signature. Please remember school attendance is critical for learning growth.
