Thank you to all who made it to Chick-fil-A last week! It was a busy evening full of fun and good food!

The Master Minds Game Club - open to 4th, 5th, and 6th graders - is set to begin it's winter session on November 6, 2017. It will run for 6 weeks. Master Minds is a club based on students playing logic games in order to expand their critical thinking, problem solving, concentration and more. The club takes place on Mondays from 3:1-4:30 pm at the school. You can find more details and sign up to register here. Space is limited, so sign up soon!

Please join us for West Vincent on Ice!

Power Play does not provide helmets. 

Please join us for our West Vincent Elementary School Family Art Night on Wednesday, November 15, 2017 from 6:00-7:30 pm in our auditorium. Hop Toad Studio will lead us in a canvas painting project that will create a family masterpiece! This event is open to all West Vincent families, but space is limited.

Entries for the Reflections Art Contest are due in just 2 1/2 weeks - November 15!

Entries can be taken to the front office and checked in with Mrs. Storti any time now. Please visit our website for details, contest rules, and the Student Entry Form. You may contact Lyn Noon with any questions.
--> A different school put out a YouTube video with details about the contest. You can view it here. Most of the information is relevant to us as well.  Our office does not keep extra copies of the forms - those can be printed from our website.
