Hello -

Please note a few events and programs that are coming up in the next few weeks...

Box Tops Summer Challenge - Due Tuesday, September 5th:
During the 2016-2017 school year, West Vincent raised $1,992.00 from the Box Tops for Education program.  The first challenge of the 2017-2018 school year ends on Tuesday!  Fill the back of the Summer Box Tops Challenge worksheet with 50 box tops from participating brands and return the worksheet to your teacher by Tuesday, September 5th for a chance to win a Dairy Queen gift card.  There will be one winner in each grade.  A copy of the worksheet can be found at

Back to School Bash - Friday, September 8th:
Mark your calendar for one of the most anticipated events of the school year!  The Back to School Bash will be held on Friday, September 8th from 5:30-7:30.  There will be a DJ, food, a selfie station and of course, the dunk tank!  This is a great opportunity to celebrate the start of the school year and reconnect with friends.  We need your help to make this evening a success.  Please considering volunteering 30 minutes of your time.  You can sign up here.

Consider joining the PTA:
We would like to invite you to join the PTA.  There is no better way to find out what is happening in your child's school than through the PTA.  PTA functions are opportunities to meet other parents and teachers, building rapport and discussing issues that are on your mind.  By volunteering with your PTA, you put your skills and hobbies to use for a noble cause—your child and all children in the community.  The cost is $7.50 for an individual membership or $15 for a couples membership.  Please visit our webpage, and click on the JOIN tab for more information.

Family Directory - Due Friday, September 15th:
Get your name in this year’s Family Directory! The deadline to submit your information is Friday, September 15th. You choose what information you would like to appear in the directory. If you do not want to share your phone number, then don’t. This publication is for the private use of families at  West Vincent Elementary School. Enter your info here.

PTA Meeting:
Mark your calendars so that you can attend our first PTA Meeting of the school year - Monday, September 18, 2017 at 6:00 pm in the school library.

There is No School on Monday.  Tuesday is Day 5.

Have a great week!
