Principal's Message

Dear Families,

As the school year comes to a close, we wish our fifth graders all the best in Middle School. Our final days of school were filled with wonderful times which I hope will become cherished memories for our students. On Thursday, June 26th, the entire school was treated to an extended Morning Program of beautiful music from Mr. Michael Mark. There is nothing more beautiful than listening to all of our students and staff singing together. It was a perfect end to a wonderful year.

Our accomplishments at VCE are truly a family endeavor. I am proud to work with a staff who cares so much for children, and parents who are so supportive. Our PTA has worked tirelessly this year to plan assemblies and events that our children will never forget. They have raised funds that enable our students to take field trips that enrich classroom instruction, and they have made our courtyard into a beautiful outdoor classroom.  We also received a gift of additional playground equipment. Individual families spend time with their children reading, helping with homework, chaperoning class trips, collecting box tops and helping with class events and projects. Together, we all make VCE the special place that it is, and we love our families!
