It's hard to believe that it is almost October! The school-year is rolling right along and things are going very well at Vaughan Elementary. We are excited to announce that a beautification project for our school has been selected as a winner in the 24th annual Azalea Celebration from NC Beautiful and Capitol Broadcasting Company. We want to take this opportunity to thank High and High, Inc., for donating the mulch for our project and Southern States Farm and Garden for donating fertilizer. We would like to invite any interested volunteers to come out and help us in planting and mulching these beauties. We will be meeting at school at 10 a. m. on Saturday, October 3 to get started. We hope to see you there!
Parents of Pre-Kindergarten students, please be reminded that there will be no school for your children on this Thursday and Friday, October 1 and 2. This only applies to our Pre-K students.
We currently have two fundraisers going on simultaneously. Some of you may have received letters asking you to purchase magazine subscriptions. This is part of a program called Computers for Education. Money that is raised through this effort helps us purchase badly needed computers for our school. Students also have order forms from Cherrydale for various products. This is our annual fundraising program sponsored by the PTA which allows us to raise funds for various supplies needed at our school. These order forms need to be turned in on Tuesday, October 6. Thank you for your support in these efforts. We could not do all the things we do here without it!
We have some great things happening in the weeks ahead. We invite all of our parents out to our first PTA meeting of the school year to be held on October 13, at 7 p. m. The Fourth and Fifth grade students will be presenting a concert that we know everyone will want to see. Also, we would like to invite our parents and students out for our first Family Reading Night of the school year to be held on October 20, from 6:00 to 7:30 p. m. Family Reading Nights are designed to allow parents the opportunity to read with their children, then watch as students take Accelerated Reader tests. It is a great way for parents to see this program in action and encourage your children to read at the same time. We look forward to seeing you at these two events!
