The VES PTA works to support the students, teachers and families by sponsoring activities to enrich, educate and bring our community together.If you haven't already, please join the PTA! We are brainstorming lots of opportunities to help make this year fun for the kids. Your membership helps to fund these activities and helps our school ratings by showing high parental involvement in our school. Our goal is 300 members. We are 1/3 of the way there! Keep those memberships coming!

This fall we plan to run the very popular Whooo's Reading Challenge and Fundraiser! Look for notifications coming soon to start logging your minutes and donations!

You will be able to get your Veterans's Spiritwear online this year! We plan to put the products right on memberhub where you purchased your membership. Look for links in future PTA blasts.

We are also talking about Virtual dance parties, Spirit Days, Family Game Nights, and Chalk the Walk options for the kids.

We would love your help with the following events. If you would like to simply pitch in an hour or so, we would appreciate your help. Email Cara Adornetto at if interested.
