Schoolyard Habitat Work Party


Calling all families to come and work in our Schoolyard Habitat, Saturday April 20, 2019, 9:00-12:30. Our kids have been planting and weeding, building and putting up bird nesting boxes and much more. We need to come together so we can finish creating this wonderful wild world.

Like our last Fall Family workday, please bring your favorite digging/weeding tools, wheelbarrows, weed-eaters, work clothes/shoes/gloves and all the hard-working hands in your family to join in the fun. Please look for the signup sheet so we can order the right amount of food to feed us (burritos again, yum!).


Note: this event is on the same day and is replacing our annual creek cleanup event which we will be back to hosting again next school year.!


Village Charter School Summer Camp

Yes! VCS summer program is a go!

We will have registration forms available some time next week. An email will be sent out with an attachment when it is ready or you will be able to pick one up in the office.

School hours on May 3rd will be 10:00 am - 4:00 pm, followed by the May Day Festival @ 4:30 in the grassy area at the back of the school grounds.

IMPORTANT: Look for more information about the festival, volunteer support and what your child will need in future weekly bulletins and communications from the teachers.

*A.M. Extended Care on Friday, May 3rd will start at 7:30 as always. 1:00-ers will have access to E.C. starting at 2:30-start of festival. There will be no E.C. provided after the festival.


National Screen Free Week

What would you and your family do with an extra 20, 30, or even 50 extra hours a week?

Village Charter School is celebrating Screen-Free Week (April 29 – May 5), the annual celebration where children, families, schools, and communities around the world swap digital entertainment for the joys of life beyond the screen. One goal of Screen-Free Week is to allow kids unstructured time to generate their own screen-free play and activities.

Do you know the more time children and adults spend with screens, the more materialistic they are – and that makes them more unhappy?

Celebrate ScreenFreeWeek April 29 – May 5!

There is a white board in the courtyard where we can set a calendar of activities and events for the week. We already have May, 3rd afternoon cover with our MAY DAY FESTIVAL.

If you are planning a hike, bike ride, plant a garden or any other screen free activity and would like to invite a group of friends from school, just write it in on the board (include the activity, place and time). Your kids will bring home a log-in sheet where they can write or draw their experiences.

Out of ideas? Attached are 101 screen free activities.
