It's hard to believe it is the beginning of November already. Things are progressing quickly, but well at our school. We held our annual Fall Festival last Thursday evening and it was a smashing success! There are so many community businesses that donated to our festival, and we cannot tell you enough how much we appreciate all that you have given to make our event successful. Parents, many of you donated items as well or came to help set up, run games or help us clean up and we certainly appreciate your help as well. Thanks for all the ways that you help us here, at events like this and by working with your children to ensure that Vaughan Elementary is successful in all ways!
This week we will be holding Fall Parent Conferences. If you have not yet signed up for a time to meet with your child's teacher, please do so. Ongoing communication with your child's teacher is vitally important in your child's academic success. Due to these conferences, school will be dismissed at 1 PM on both Thursday, November 5, and Friday, November 6. Please make arrangements for your children on these days.
Next Wednesday, November 11, is the Veteran's Day Holiday and there is no school on this day. Also,
Next Thursday, November 12, will now be an early dismissal day to allow for county-wide Staff Development. Please make arrangements for your children for these days as well.
Next Thursday evening, November 12, at 6:30 PM, Mrs. Bender will be presenting an informational session for students and parents on how to prepare for Science Fair Projects. At this workshop, Mrs. Bender will discuss how to choose a successful science fair project, how to complete it and then set up display boards correctly. Since our Science Fair is held in February, this is a great time to get this information and get started helping your child plan his/her project.
