We have a school parent that is a certified math teacher that is available during study halls for homework help, test preparation and remediation for grades 7-9. If you are interested in this opportunity, please contact me via email and I will pass on your contact information.
We still have a limited number of Spirit Wear shirts available. Please see Mrs. James in “C” Building if you would like to purchase one.
Business Parent Listing
“Best laid plans of mice and men often go awry.” Last semester it was our intent to provide to our school parents a listing of VCS Parent Businesses. That did not happen. However, it will happen this semester! If you have a home-based or personal business you would like for me to share with our VCS Family, please email me the following information and I will compile this information and pass it on to our school family: Business Name, Contact information, (phone and email), brief description of the service provided and any other pertinent information that you think might be helpful. Please send this information to me by Friday, October 10 to be included in this year’s directory.

Lost and Found
The “Lost and Found” bins are located in “A” and “C” buildings. If your child has lost an item, please stop by and check these bins. All unclaimed items will be removed and donated to charity on at regular intervals.
Word from My Heart
As God gives you the opportunity to “bless” another believer today….please do so. Each of us have days that can only be survived if we have another brother or sister that comes up behind us and pushes us on. Are you the one that needs holding up or are you the one that is holding up?
Never give up….we have victory in sight!
