Dear VCELS Families,

Fall is in the air and our youngest Valiants are anxiously awaiting the brilliant colors of the season. The past few weeks have been busy settling into a new school year and new routines. Our children are enjoying weekly activities that stimulate their minds through observation, play and guided activities. It is truly amazing to see every child grasp a new concept and share this with their teachers.  I highly encourage you to talk with your child about their day and offer open-ended questions to help them develop their language and social skills. Some of the best conversations are those shared with our youngest children.

As we begin the month of October, I want to share some upcoming calendar highlights and events.  Be sure to mark your calendar:

Oct.7: Tuition due- late fee applied after Oct. 7

Oct 11: NO SCHOOL – Teacher In-Service

Oct 23: Coffee and Treats with Principal 7:00-8:30 a.m.

Oct 31: Halloween Festivities – arrive by 9:00 a.m.

As we get closer to the date look for more details regarding Halloween Festivities from your child’s teacher.  On Thursday, October 31, students are invited to wear Halloween costumes.  They will parade around the VC campus with their teachers and classmates. This is a great way for our students to interact with the VC community and get some treats from familiar faces.

As always, thank you for trusting us with your child and for making VCELS part of your family.
