Message from the Principal:



Greetings Valley Cottage Families,

February and March are exciting months here at VCE.  As we close out our first few weeks of February, we have many wonderful things happening.  Pajama Day is tomorrow, Thursday, February 13th and we will also celebrate our 100th day of school with our Kindergarten class.  The Kindergarteners will perform their Valentine’s Day concert on Friday, February 14th at 9:30 am. All Kindergarten parents are welcome and encouraged to attend.  Our mid-winter recess is from Monday, February 17th to Friday, February 21st. Enjoy your time at home to rest and prepare for our busy month of March.

We will be “Springing” our clocks ahead on March 8th, followed by VCE’s awesome International Night on Thursday, March 12th.  On this night, there will be a celebration of cultures from all over the world. If you have not signed up and would like to do so, please see the link on the VCE website. It is guaranteed to be a memorable night for all involved.

We close out the month with ushering in Spring on March 19th and our NYS ELA exams on Wednesday, March 25th through the 26th.

Also, please do not forget about our Spring Parent/Teacher conferences that will take place on April 3rd, 6th, and 8th.

We have so many wonderful things going on here at VCE and are excited to share this information with you. Should you have any questions, please call or stop by.  We are always here for you.

Lucrisha Addison-Harris, Principal
