The end of the year is quickly coming. As we begin to think of next year, a building theme has been selected, VPE, Oceans of Fun and Learning. We will use this theme to promote both learning and fun while at school.
We have completed all State and MAP testing. Information with student scores will come home with grade cards on the last day of school.
The last eBlast of the year will be sent on Friday, May 24th. After that we will email as needed.

Summer is in the air-or at least we hope it will be soon!
Two quick items from our library media center:
1). Students are asked to return all the books they have finished by TODAY Friday, May 17th. All classes who have 100% of their books returned or accounted for (i.e. payment for lost or damaged books) will be entered in a drawing for a popcorn and movie party to be held the last week of school.
2). Summer is a great time for students to maintain those reading skills they have worked so hard on all year. Please see the attachment for some summer reading programs that are going on locally and online.
