September 13, 2010

What a wonderful year we are having! The school year has started off with a blast and things are moving right along. We would like to welcome Mrs. LaTonya Stith, our new music teacher to the staff here at Vaughan. We are looking forward to all the exciting things she will teach our students in music class.

Vaughan's Accountability Night was held September 2, from 6:00 to 9:00. During this meeting rules and procedures for the school as well as expectations for each class and grade level were reviewed. If you missed this very important informative night, please talk with your child's teacher to get all the information you missed.

We have already held a very successful Computers for Education drive. Students brought home booklets to get addresses so the Computers for Education company can send out invitations to purchase magazine subscriptions. Thanks to help from parents and guardians, we received enough addresses to earn enough money to purchase three (3) new computers!!

Last week our Baby Eagles joined us. We are excited to have 18 new Pre-Kindergarten students among us and are looking forward to all that Mrs. Barnes and Mrs. Watson will do with them to get them ready for Kindergarten.

This week our fifth grade students will be leaving for our annual Sound-to-Sea field trip. Students will be leaving at 7 am on Wednesday, September 15 and enjoy three days at Trinity Center in Salter Path, NC for an environmental education program. Students will return home at approximately 7 pm Friday evening, September 17. We cannot wait to hear about all that these students will learn and the experiences they will take part in while attending this wonderful educational opportunity!

This Thursday afternoon, September 16, at 2 pm, we will kick off our Fall Fundraiser. Parents, please be looking for flyers and order forms. We thank you in advance for all you do to help our school in so many ways. You will never know how much your support means!

Friday, September 24 is school picture day. Students will also be taking class pictures at this time. Students will still need to dress in school uniform for these portraits. Thank you for your help in this matter.

It's hard to believe that the school year is progressing so rapidly. Our first progress reports will go home on Monday, September 27. Please look for these to get an idea of how your child is doing in this year's studies. It's never to early to meet with teachers to discuss areas of concern.

This year, Vaughan is offering a new program to help Dads work with their children in academic. On Tuesday, September, 28, we will host Reading with Dads from 6:30 to 7:30 pm. Dads, we encourage you to come out and learn some strategies to help your children in reading.
