Please take a look at the calendar for the upcoming 2019/2020 school year.

 

Registration Packet - 2019-20

Hopefully everyone has received the 19/20 registration packet sent home on Monday. If not, see the email sent on 5/13/19 - VCS - Registration forms 2019-20 or stop by the office. You only need to complete those 4 pages . Printing and signing the other forms listed are optional and in addition to the 4 pages. There were two mistakes found on the registration form. 1) On page 1, top line: school year grade should be 19/20. 2) On page 2, Income Eligibility box; the house hold size number should be shift down one line. An email explaining this was sent on Tuesday, 5/14. ALL INFORMATION ON PAGE 2 is required for Federal and State statistics and funding. Completing it now will save from having to ask you for it later. Packets are due on the last day of school, Friday, June 7.

 

Pick Up Safety Reminder

We strongly encourage all parents to physically come on to campus to pick up children at the end of the school day. For those of you who ask your child to wait out front we want to remind you that we (VCS and/or NWP) cannot be responsible for their safety. Any number of things can happen with them out there including you being delayed with both offices closed and no way to let them know.

Appreciations

Have an appreciation you wish to make? You can email it in by Friday morning to bulletin@villagecharterschool.com and it will get added to the next Bulletin.

I want to echo the sentiments regarding the incredible gifts our Parents Association provided last week.  After years on the parent side, I experienced my first Staff Appreciation week.  We’re so blessed to have a supportive parent body year-round, but I can not express how wonderful it was to be showered with so much love and attention and a full week of special delights.  It was just the boost I needed to push me through this (glorious) time of spring fever to the end of our school year! ~ Ashley Hamlett
