HELP adopt a class before the year ends!!


As we wind down the 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 supplies they have already purchased out of pocket 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. 


Ready to make a donation?  It is SO EASY AND CONVENIENT AT OUR ONLINE STORE! If you have questions? Email Maryliz at adoptaclass@vsypta.org



All donors are added to our annual "Virginia's list". This year's Virginia's List is posted at the entrance to the front office.   Please support the businesses that support our teachers and classrooms.

FOOD RESCUE Program at vsy

The first week of the Food Rescue Program at VSY was so 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 nenaro@yahoo.com or (954) 294-3834 for details or volunteering information.


This is an example of ONE DAY'S worth of food that can now be donated!


Volunteers are an integral part in the success of the VSY community. In order to volunteer in any capacity at VSY during school hours, you must complete the online Broward Schools volunteer application form. The application requires time for processing through Broward County so be sure to submit your application ASAP.  This is being strictly enforced as it ensures a safe and secure environment for our students. All volunteers--even those who have volunteered in the past--must complete the application.
