Morning Circle and Spiral Dance

Dear Village Families,

What a year it has been! Please join your VCS community at the last Morning Circle of the year, this coming Monday, June 4th.

We will be having an extended circle with Bonnie leading the spiral dance, bringing this school year to a close. We are hoping people can stay and join in. NWP is out of session so parking will not be an issue!


VCS End-of-the-Year Carnival

Our End of Year Carnival is next Friday, June 8th! 
Here's a reminder of the mission-critical stuff to help make the magic:

1. We need LOTS OF LITTLE PRIZES.  Do you have party favors laying around (cluttering up your home? :-).  We'll take them off your hands and put them to good (recycled) use.  We're definitely not asking folks to purchase new ones, we're confident we can collect plenty for our carnival games just from re-using what families can gather around their homes.  Just toss 'em in a bag and drop 'em in the office NO LATER THAN TUESDAY, JUNE 5.

2.  We need gently loved kids toys for the "Kids Raffle” at the end-of-year Carnival.   Fun suggestions: WOODEN TOYS, SPORTS EQUIPMENT, ART SUPPLIES, MUSICAL INSTRUMENTS, BOOKS OR GAMES.  If you have anything to contribute to this popular event, just bring it to the office as well, again, NO LATER THAN TUESDAY, JUNE 5. Feel free to contact Crisarlin Vazquez if you have questions.

3.  On the yummy side of things, WE NEED ITEMS FOR OUR CAKE WALK (everything sweet to eat is welcome--homemade or store bought, sugar-full, sugar-free, gluten-full, gluten-free, etc.).  The more the (much) merrier! Baked goods can be delivered anytime on Thursday, June 7 (including just bringing it along when you arrive at the carnival.

4.  Last, but certainly not least, we are asking for volunteers for setup and cleanup, AND that EACH PARENT that's able to attend SIGN-UP FOR ONE 30-MINUTE SHIFT to actually make the fun happen!  Look for the sign-up board outside the office starting next week,  Tuesday May, 29th. 

5. AFTERCARE KIDDOS:  If you will be unable to attend the carnival, but your child will be in aftercare, they don't have to miss all the fun.  Please fill out the permission slip and pre-purchase the carnival tickets for them. The tickets will be distributed on the day of the event when they are dismissed from aftercare to participate.

Thanks in advance for all of your help.  We can't pull this off without you!

Registration Packets - Return by Friday, June 8

Please take time over the weekend to complete your child's registration packet for the 2018-19 school year. See email VCS - 2018-19 Registration forms sent on May 31.
