HELP adopt "YOUR"-class tODAY!!
As we start the new year, we have teachers looking for reimbursements for their classroom purchases without enough funds in their Adopt-A-Class account. If you have not yet contributed to the adoption of your child's classroom, please consider doing so. These funds go directly into the classroom for much-needed supplies such as educational materials, printer ink, craft supplies, materials for special class projects, and so much more. 📘📎📌✏️
Donations can be made for $50, $150, or $250. Click here to see all the benefits.

NEW FOOD RESCUE Program at vsy
The first week of the Food Rescue Program at VSY was sooo successful. Over 1000 items that kids were not going to eat, that would have typically gone in the trash in just the first three days were donated to those in need. This program continues to offer very important life lessons such as not to waste good food, to help the ones in need in our community and to protect the environment. Simply by collecting food children are not eating in the cafeteria and donating it to a local food bank. Click here to find out more about the School Board of Broward County pilot program and here to find out how it is working at VSY.
Please consider signing up as little as one to two days a week monthly to help this great cause. Our super parent, Rafaela Lima Navarra is heading up the program. Feel free to contact her at firstname.lastname@example.org or (954) 294-3834 for details or volunteering information.
This is a an example of ONE DAYS worth of food that can now be donated!
