School Garden Network Fundraiser!

The School Garden Network is hosting a virtual fundraising event on April 22nd from 5-6pm. VCS has been a recipient of two SGN programs; the first was the teen apprenticeship program (TAP) where high school students installed the irrigation and the second was the Schoolyard Habitat Grant. This provided funding and support for our garden design, plant selection and student activities. 

The links to the event and the auction site are:

SPRING BLOOM! Sowing and Growing in Support of School Garden Network

School Garden Network Fundraising Auction

What will make this fun for the Village community? An interview with Mr. Winter about the garden, many pictures of the VCS garden and students, and a cameo appearance. There is also an online silent auction that lasts up until the event. It’s all pretty awesome and for a great cause! 

One more thing: we are offering a tomato plant that comes in a pot with soil to any student that wants one, until they run out. We have about 50 tomato starts. 

Thanks for participating!

7th Annual Creek Clean-a-thon! Save the Date!

APRIL 17, 2021 9:00 - 12:00

As a community we have cleaned up 2,000 pounds of litter over our cleanup years. Each year as a school we have also cleaned up our campus at school year’s end, often finding a surprising amount of trash (sometimes it’s been over 50 pounds!). This is 2,000 pounds of trash that is no longer loose litter, it is captured trash removed from our natural environment because we cared together and made a difference. Let’s celebrate that!

We are excited to be able to continue with our Creek Clean-a-thon tradition, though a bit modified from past years. It’s going to be AWESOME! Our children and families will have the opportunity to feel the power of connection, community and service... let’s do this! Next week look for a video message with more details about how we are organizing ourselves this year. One (Covid safety) adjustment we are making is that we are not all starting together at 9:00. Your family will choose when to start inside a 9:00 - 11:00 window of time. More information to come.

Traditionally this event has also served as a fundraiser and that is an option again for this year. If you want to share this link with folks who may want to support this event and our school, please do so. Please feel no pressure to fundraise, but here is the link if you choose to do so. It’s the same site we used for our Talent Variety Show fundraising updated now with our Creek Clean-a-thon focus: ourschool.support/7thAnnualCreekClean-a-thon

It is not too late to sign up to participate and receive a t-shirt. Complete this form.

 

Summer Camp 2021—June 16-July 30, 8:00am-5:00pm
