Dear VCES Community,

With a successful Open House on Sunday, January 27, we began the admissions process for the 2019-2020 school year. Prospective families spent time getting to know our community and saw firsthand the wonderful things happening at our school. A special thank you to the musicians who played, our fourth graders and Marian singers, as well as our student council members who answered questions and helped families find their way. We also had Matthew Leslie, a current senior in the high school, share his elementary school experience and our VALOR co-chair, Katie Bromert on hand to help make the day a success.

We have transitioned to an online application process and all first round applications for new students are due by 4:00 p.m. on Friday, February 8, 2019. You can find more information about the application process on our Admissions Page. Current VCS students will be bringing home their reenrollment packets on Friday, February 15, 2019 and they will be due back on Monday, February 25, 2019. If you have more than one student at VCS, the packet will come home with your youngest VCEMS student.

During the month of February, students will again have the opportunity to support our PE service partner, The American Heart Association with a Jump Rope for Heart event. Students will participate in a kick off assembly later this month. Following the assembly, information will be sent home explaining what your child needs to do should you decide they will participate.

Gala class projects are finished and ready for your bidding. Students and guests at Grandparents and Special Friends day got a sneak peek at the creative work of your children. I hope to see you at the Gala on Saturday, February 23 at Montgomery Park.
