  • Summer Reading Challenge and the Library is OPEN this summer!

    Our school is participating in a fun summer reading project: the Scholastic Summer Challenge, featuring Read for the World Record. The Summer Challenge unites students from around the globe in an attempt to set a new world record for most minutes read this summer! A letter was sent home this week explaining the program and attached was your child’s username and password to start logging their minutes.

    Veterans Park has set a goal to read 1,000,000 minutes this summer!  To help us reach this goal, our school library will be open from June 5-July 24 on Tuesdays from 9:00-11:00 a.m. for check-out.  Students must be accompanied by an adult. The library will not be open during the week of July 4.

    The world record attempt begins May 7 and concludes September 7, 2018. The total logged reading minutes, along with the top 20 schools, will be published in the 2019 edition of the Scholastic Book of World Records.

    Encourage your child to participate and track reading minutes either with a paper log or online at It’s a kid-friendly, safe online community where students can be part of a record-setting global team, log reading minutes, and enjoy activities geared for all ages.

  • 4th Grade Parents!!

    Each year the tradition of 4th grade parents hosting a reception after 5th grade graduation for the graduates and families is a special way to honor the time each child spent at VPE.  When our kids are 5th graders next year we will enjoy this special event as we celebrate with our kids!

    We will have work before to gather supplies, donations, and flowers so it's not volunteer time at school until the day of the event, May 31st. Please sign up to help using this link: 

    Thank you for your support!  I'll see you at VPE on May 1st!!
