The 2013 VCS Christmas Craft Fair was a success!  The VCS JMG program is using the money raised to help one of our own. Kevin Boucher, a graduate of VCS, has been diagnosed with a very rare form of cancer which affects the liver and spleen. The proceeds raised from this event will go to Kevin to help him offset the many costs associated with his treatment. Many thanks to all who helped with their time and generosity.

PAC Night 2013

On Wednesday evening, October 9, forty five Kindergarten, first and second grade children and their families attended the annual Title I-sponsored Parent And Child Night, also known as PAC Night!  In order to make this event more convenient for families, Mr. Esposito and his students put much time and energy into offering a community dinner prior to the event.With guidance from a K-2 teacher, families then learned how to make and use some type of literacy activity, leaving with the materials to enjoy it at home.Families were able to participate in two activities during the night, learning fun ways to improve literacy skills such as phonics, phonemic awareness, vocabulary, and comprehension.At VCS we are thankful for the support we get from our parents and community when hosting these events!
