Dear Parents,

I am so excited to report to you that we raised just a little over $17,000 on our recent Spell-A-Thon fundraiser! Our students who brought in the most dollar amount from their sponsors will be receiving $50 gift cards from either, Amazon or Target.  If you would still like to turn in your proceeds, we are more than happy to receive them!  See list of winners inside this edition.

During the second semester each year, I have the delight of doing formal teacher observations in the classroom.  I already know we have very wonderful and capable teachers, but it's great to see them in action.   Mrs. Dallenbach never disappoints as she somehow manages to plan a surprise for me when I come to her classroom!  This year, the surprise in her lesson was waiting for me in my office when I returned...  "Math It's Everywhere!"  There were at least 170 sticky notes with math symbols (created by her students) plastered all-over-my-office!!!  What Fun!  Such creativity and, yes, Mrs. Dallenbach's class, "Math It's Everywhere!"


Have a blessed weekend as it seems winter wants to give us its last hoorah!

In His Love,

Dorace A. Lynch
Elementary Principal

Parent Alert

It is cold and flu season.  Please be extra cautious of your children's health and keep them home if they are ill.  We want to prevent viruses from spreading as much as possible.  Refer to our Parent Handbook for details of when you should keep your child home.

Remember that we must have your physician's permission, in writing, to administer any prescription medications.  Attached is a form you can take with you to appointments for your convenience.

We must also have parental permission to administer all over-the-counter medication.  This includes creams and cough drops.  The form attached below also has an area for you to give parental permission for non- prescription medications.

Thank you for your help with this!

Helpful Hints

Should it be necessary for a student to miss school due to a vacation, parents must procure permission from administration 5 days in advance of the absence by completing our Planned Absence Form.

Approval of a planned absence is subject to a review of attendance history and academic standing.  Failure to receive advance absence approval may result in an unexcused absence.

T he Planned Absence Form is available in the Elementary Office.
Falcon Referral Program


VCS is offering a tuition discount for the 2020-2021 school year.

The Falcon Referral Discount!  

You can earn up to $1000 credit toward your tuition for the 2020-2021 school year by referring a new family.

How does it work?

Refer a new family to VCS.  When the new family enrolls for the 2020-2021 school year, the referring family (that's you) and the new family will each receive $1000 credit toward their tuition.  You can refer up to five (5) families in one school year.  The $1000 credit is off your total tuition, not per child.

For more details or to help a friend schedule a campus tour, contact Maylene Ripley, Director of Enrollment at 707-446-1776, extension 5300!

Updated Box Top Information









Clipping and scanning Box Tops is an easy way to help earn cash for our school.  However, w e are no longer able to give class prizes or parties for turning in Box Tops due to the change in program.  We will continue to give free dress passes to students who turn in more than "50" Box Tops within a month.  Dress passes will be awarded the following month.  As always, turn in clipped Box Tops to your teacher.  To receive credit for electronic Box Tops, please email a picture of the submitted  Box Tops, along with your student's name and teacher to ptf@go-vcs.com.

Box Tops



Participating brands are beginning to change their packaging from a traditional Box Tops clip to the new Box Tops Label.

Eventually, the Box Tops program will become digital-only, so  i f you see this new label, use the new Box Tops app to scan your receipt.  Box Tops are still worth 10 cents each for your school.  The app will automatically find participating products purchased at any store and instantly add cash to your schools earnings online.

Traditional Box Tops are being phased out of production, but may continue to be found on many products still in store.  You may still clip them and send them in!

We have included a link below to a "how to" video!
