VCS Chapel Services

We are looking for student help in assisting with music for chapel services, either vocally with piano or guitar! If accepted, students will be responsible for practicing with the “Chapel Music Crew,” assisting the music teachers in choosing music and helping to lead the student body singing along with organizing and updating the songbooks. Students are selected not only for their musical ability, but also on a personal testimony “in-and-out,” including a recommendation from a teacher or administrator. Please see Ms. Young for more details and an application.

VIKING Yearbook

The Yearbook staff is selling Smencils for the New Year! Smencils are pencils that come in several different FUN scents: strawberry, kiwi, blueberry, pineapple, PB&J, bubble gum, orange, blue raspberry, root beer and black cherry! The staff will sell them for $1 each to help raise money for the several VCS Yearbook enhancements. The Yearbook staff will work the elementary classrooms selling Smencils during the Junior/Senior high break and lunch periods.

Show Your Viking Spirit!

If you have not already posted your VCS bumper sticker, consider doing so! If you need more VCS Spirit stickers or T-shirts, stop by one of our offices. Mrs. Keller, Mrs. Frazier or Mrs. James will help you out!

Helping Us Help Your Children

Remember to turn in your Box Tops-for-Education tabs from General Mills products and Labels-for-Education from Campbell’s Soup products to your child’s teacher. Also remember to link your Harris-Teeter VIC card so we can benefit from the Together in Education program.

Just mention VCS and our school code, 2227. If you have friends and family that are not already donating to other schools through the VIC card program, suggest they link their card to our school.

Food Lion’s MVP card is also linked to our school. Mention us the next time you shop with them.

By the way, Aluminum can pop top tabs from soda cans can be used help provide 1 FREE hour of chemotherapy treatment. Please give those “pop-top” tops placed in zip top baggies to Mrs. Herriage.
