Note from Rebecca

Two and a half weeks down! I want to thank all the parents and students for your flexibility, patience and generosity of spirit. None of this is easy, but in true VCS fashion, we are doing it with grace, efficiency, and kindness.

I also want to thank the PA for hosting a wonderful meeting on Thursday. We had a great turnout and my soul was renewed.

And, finally, THANK YOU to the VCS Teachers and Staff. You are amazing. I am in awe of what you do everyday.


Packet Pick Up

THE MOST IMPORTANT THING YOU CAN DO TO ENSURE YOUR CHILD'S SUCCESS DURING DL (after making sure they are logged in at 9:00am)--Pick up the weekly packet! Everything your child needs for the week is in the packet that is available for pick up on Friday (and it's there anytime during the weekend). If they don't have this material, it is very hard for them to be successful.

If you cannot pick it up, please make arrangements for us to drop it at your home.



If you received an email asking you to log in to the Aeries Parent Portal to complete your child's registration, please do so ASAP. This email only went out to those who did not go through the entire process.

Send an email to if you have any problems.

Print and return the emergency card and PPP form when completed. All other forms only require an approval/denial check.

A Glimpse into the Classrooms

Please take the time to look at the attached glimpse into the classrooms, and see what everyone has been up to the past few weeks!


City of SR Creek Week, 35th International Cleanup
Let's rock this, VCS!

Hello dear VCS,

I thank you for your devotion to our school and our community, what a challenging time we are going through and rising above with your help! I also thank your spirits for creating a school that cares through action, truly you are the school of my dreams!

This year marks the 35th annual international cleanup... 122 countries participated last year... It is such a special event to join MILLIONS in caring together all over the world... Lots of places are actually making a week or month out of it as well.

Starting September 19th, check out the all virtual SR Creek Week resources I have helped to develop, lots to do for all ages. Here’s that link for you and to share…

Here’s to making a difference together!

Stephanie Lennox

1st PA Meeting of the Year

Welcome back, VCS families!

First, we want to welcome all of the new VCS families and students: 

  • Miss Malika's class: Lowell Acker, Watson Baker, Avery Fallin, Rook Gurule,
                                      Keahi Le, Mabel Landis, Kayla McCracken
  • Miss Kristen's class: Arthur Glick, Elijah-Jade Wilkerson
  • Miss Parent's class: Ayely Valerio

We also want to thank you all for your patience during the process of opening school! It was an interesting first day of school, with some of our families evacuated from their houses, the smoke, and on top of that, "homeschooling".

It will be great to see and meet all the new families in person, even if through a car window and masked; but for now, let's do it via Zoom. Please join our Parent Association meeting on Thursday, September 3rd at noon.

What do we do?

The parents/guardians and staff work closely together as partners to ensure the success of our students. This collaborative effort is integrated into every aspect of the school’s management, including decision-making, fundraising, governance, and the educational program. It is essential that all parents and guardians understand the important role that their participation plays in sustaining our school.
