Does your child need new books to read over the summer?
Do you need to clear some room on your child’s bookshelves?
We have a solution! The VSY Media Center is hosting a book swap this month.  To take part in the book swap, students should bring in at least 2 gently-used books to the media center. Books should be age appropriate for elementary school students.  No magazines, puzzle or game books, please. There is no maximum amount of books students can bring in.
The collection runs through Wednesday, April 17th. Students will “shop the swap” during the last week in April and will select one book for every two books brought in. Remaining books will be donated.
***Have any empty shoe boxes?  We are in need of shoe boxes to organize book swap books.
Please send in shoe boxes to the media center!***

We are also looking for interested parents, teachers, and VSY staff to help form the Nominating Committee. The elected Executive Board positions are President, Vice President, Ways and Means, Membership, Recording Secretary, and Corresponding Secretary. If you are interested in learning more about the positions, the time commitment, or potentially filling one of these roles, please contact Brittnie Rowan at or 954-328-5164.

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. 📘📎📌✏️

This year we have combined the 2 most talked about VSY PTA nights into one!  And we need your help to make it flawless.  Arts Alive will be held in front of all the classrooms in the downstairs courtyard where students will display their Meet the Master creations from throughout the year.  Clay Tile Night will be held in the cafeteria where parents, students, teachers, and staff can create permanent tiles which will be hung at VSY.  Create a memento of your time at VSY.

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 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.
