Harvest Month

Recently we began our First Annual HARVEST MONTH. In Snow Camp, NC there is a ministry called Siloam Missionary Homes. This ministry is specifically designed to meet the needs of missionaries spreading the Gospel of Jesus Christ that are home on furlough or are on deputation preparing for service to which the Lord has called them. Please take a look at the flier that was emailed to you. All classes that participate will be rewarded with a special treat during their lunch time in November.

Fall Break

Fall Break will be held on Thursday and Friday, October 15 and 16. School will be closed, but daycare will be open to students currently enrolled. Please refer to the note that was emailed from Mrs. Herriage.

VCS Golf Tournament

A flier was emailed last week concerning the VCS Golf Tournament to benefit the VCS Golf Team. If you have any questions, please call Shane Trent at 336-362-9040.    

Pennies for Leukemia Research

Again this year we will host the Pennies for Leukemia Research program. This program has been a great success over the last several years and we look forward to helping again with this worthy program. The program will begin after Fall Break and special information will be sent home next week.

Carpool

We have two families in the McLeansville area who are seeking help with afterschool child pickup. One needs it only a few days a week; the other could use it every day to her business just off I-40/I-85 and Mt Hope Church Rd. If you can help, please call Mrs. James for contact information.

Driver’s Ed

Interested students that will be 14 ½ by October 26 may register with Mrs. Keller in “A” Building. There is no charge for this class. A copy of your child’s birth certificate is required on the first day of class.

K3-K4 Openings

Due to growth in the after-school program, we have added another teacher! Because of that we now have several openings in the K3 and K4 after-school program. Call us for more information.

PTF BBQ for Sale

We have individually frozen pounds of our WORLD FAMOUS” PTF BBQ for sale. The coast is $5 per pound. If you would like to purchase a pound or twenty, please stop by and see Mrs. James in “C” building. It makes a great easy week night dinner or a delicious addition to a weekend get-together!

Helping Us Help Your Children

Please consider turning in your BoxTops-for-Education tabs from General Mills products and Labels-for-Education from Campbell’s Soup products to your child’s teacher. Let’s set a new record this year for the most labels and boxtops turned in! Forms are available through the offices to make this process easier.

Remember to re-link your Harris-Teeter VIC card the next time you shop so we can benefit from their Together In Education program. Just mention VCS and our school code, 2227 the next time you use your VIC card. 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.

Target also makes donations. Just mention linking your Target account to VCS.

By the way, Aluminum can pop tops from soda cans, canned goods, etc., 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.

VCS Art Wall

The next time you are in “C” Building, stop by and check out the “Art Wall” that displays the art projects completed by our students. Many of these pieces will be going to regional and state level competitions!

AWANA

Vandalia Baptist Church is sponsoring the AWANA youth outreach program on Wednesday nights. The AWANA program is a Christ-centered boys and girls club where they learn Bible truths, memorize Bible verses, play fun games and learn how to work together as a team. If your child does not already participate in a youth program at your home church, please consider this program.

Keep in mind that Vandalia Baptist Church has a mid-week prayer meeting from 7:30-8:30 during the same time AWANA is going on. Please feel welcomed to join us!

Piano for Sale

If you are interested in purchasing a very nice console Kimball piano, please contact the school office and ask for Mrs. Frazier for more details.

Word from My Heart

Can you believe it? We are almost one-fourth of the way through this school year! How time flies.

As we continue to progress through this semester, may I remind you to “stop and smell the roses?” I know that that is a phrase that is used often, but take into consideration the true meaning; time really does fly by.

I had the wonderful opportunity to “hang-out” with my children this past weekend. It was great. My “babies” are now in their twenties. Don’t blink…they will be grown up before you know it.

I say that to share this; be the best example you can be right now. They will mimic your every move and cling to your every word. Encourage your children to follow God and be the leader they are destined to be.

Dr. W
