Join the VSY PTA
Welcome to the VSY PTA! Given the challenging circumstances of the pandemic, having an organization that connects and supports families and staff within our school community is vitally important. If you have not done so, please click here to join the VSY PTA. We are hoping to have 100% of VSY families be part of our PTA community! Remember, you must join the PTA each school year. PTA Membership does NOT roll over from year to year.
Welcome Committee: Message to New Parents
Hello VSY Families!
Welcome to our dynamic, supportive, and engaging school community! As we approach the beginning of the school year, we recognize that adjusting to a school community and establishing a network of relationships takes time. We are also greatly saddened that the pandemic has disrupted many of our traditional opportunities for meeting and connecting with one another.
With that in mind, the VSY PTA has created a Welcome Committee of veteran VSY parents to serve as a resource for families new to our community. These individuals are a friendly, information-rich connection to help welcome, guide, and support you in your first months at VSY.
If you would like to be paired with one of these helpful, experienced VSY parents, and a small group of other new families, please click here to complete a short form. Prior to the first day of school, your Welcome Committee contact will follow-up with an email introduction and share their contact information; host a virtual get-together to connect and answer any beginning of the year questions; and will serve as a point of contact for any questions that arise throughout the year. If you have any questions, please email Erin Gohl at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We look forward to an exciting, albeit unique, school year!
