Message from the Principal: Mrs. Gina Cappiello

Dear VCE Families,

On behalf of the entire VCE staff, we wish all of our VCE families a very happy 2018! We are certainly off to a cold start to the New Year, however seeing the children as we returned from winter break certainly warmed our hearts. Weather permitting, we will make every effort to get the children outside for recess. Please make sure that children are dressed warmly with jackets, hats and gloves. An extra sweater or sweatshirt is also recommended as temperatures do fluctuate in different classrooms and in different parts of the building. If you are in need of any of the items mentioned above, please contact Julie Kassel in our Family Resource Center at 353-7291.

On Friday, January 18th our PTA will sponsor our annual Family Game Night at 7:00 pm in the cafeteria. This is always a wonderful family event with great prizes and raffles. We also hope to see many of our families at our Winter Concert for grades 3-5 on January 18th at the High School for what promises to be a wonderful evening of music. Finally, the fifth grade D.A.R.E. graduation will be held on Thursday, February 1st at 9:30 am in the cafeteria. 

Finally, many thanks for the continued cooperation and patience of our VCE families as we attempt to speed up the afternoon car pick up process. It is greatly appreciated!


Mrs. Gina Cappiello, Principal
