Dear VCE Families,
We have many exciting events planned this month at VCE. The month begins with our 5th grade D.A.R.E. graduation which will take place on February 1st at 9:30am in the cafeteria. This event is a significant milestone for our 5th graders who have learned about the effects of alcohol and drugs and have been empowered to resist peer pressure and make good decisions.
Our PTA Cultural Arts Committee has planned a number of assemblies to help brighten up an otherwise cold and dreary month. On February 2nd, the Story Pirates will be here with writing workshops for our 5th graders. On February 6th , our 4th grade students will experience what life was like in Colonial America when the Colonial Man comes to visit. On February 16th, Inspire Nyack has graciously funded Mad Science assemblies for all of our students.
After a wonderful concert season for grades 1-5, our kindergarten students will have their very own Valentine’s concert for their families on February 14th at 9:30am. It does not get cuter than this!
Valentine’s Day is also February spirit day at VCE. All students are urged to wear their Valentine’s Day colors to school.
Finally, on March 1st, VCE, with the help of our PTA will host our first annual Multicultural Night. This evening will be a wonderful opportunity to learn about other cultures and celebrate the rich diversity of our school and community. Please join us for this wonderful family celebration.
On another note, I would like to thank our families for their patience and assistance during car pick up. When we all work together we can keep the line moving safely.
I look forward to seeing you at many of our upcoming events. Thank you for sharing your children with us each day!
Gina Cappiello, Principal
