It's hard to believe it is already mid-April. The school-year is certainly moving right along. Thank you very much to all of the families and community members that recently supported our school in our Candy Man fundraising event. We had an astounding amount of participation from students and we are so proud of them for their hard work. Over half of our students sold products during the fundraiser. Over one-fourth of the whole school population sold at least 30 items. This enabled them to get to ride in a Hummer Limousine to Burger King as a reward for their salesmanship. Again, we want to thank all of you who purchased products from students and supported our school in this way. We could not do all of the things we do at Vaughan School without your support.
The next few weeks will bring many important events and activities in our school calendar. On Monday, April 19, Vaughan School will recognize its many volunteers at a Volunteer Reception at 1:30 pm in the Music Room. Thank you to all the parents and community members that take time out of their busy schedules to come out and help us in so many ways. You will never know how much we appreciate all the ways that you give of your talents to make our school so successful.
On Tuesday, April 20th from 9 am- 12 pm and 1 pm to 3 pm, Vaughan Elementary will be holding Pre-Kindergarten Registration. If you are interested in having your child be considered to attend, you need to bring the child, the child's official birth certificate, the child's social security card, the child's immunization records and proof of residence to registration. Also, Tuesday, April 20th is an early release day. Students will get out of school at 1 pm to allow time for staff development.
