Attention Parents

Please slow down and obey all traffic rules when in the Vessels neighborhood and parking lot. Also, please help us slow our kids down while on campus. Speak to your child about not running to class when the bell rings. We have been focusing on walking to ensure that all students are safe and accident-free. Lastly, if you wait with your child in the morning, please do so by the office, away from the lunch tables.

Thank you for your understanding and for making Vessels a safer place.

Showing Kindness Daily
I want to share an idea from one of my favorite bloggers, George Couros, who is an educator and an expert on leadership. He states that we should not only ask our children what they did at school today, but should also ask, "Who did you help today?" This will send a message to our kids on what we as adults truly value.
