Patriot Pacers Sign Up
Fill out this FORM to register your child for Patriot Pacers!!
Patriot Pacers is back for another year of fun! All grades are welcome to join in our weekly Wednesday morning movement group. We meet in the VPE gym to start the day with lots of activity! It'll get the wiggles out before they head off to their classrooms, ready for a great day of learning.
We will meet starting on October 3rd and continue meeting every Wednesday until November 7th. Patriot Pacers starts at 7:15 and continues until 7:42, when everyone is dismissed to their classrooms.
Patriot Pacers is volunteer led, so we do need volunteers each morning to keep activities safe and fun. If you are signing up your child, please check out our SignUp Genius to snag your best Wednesday to join us. We must have at least 3 volunteers or that morning's session will have to be cancelled.
KY Kids Day
Tomorrow is KY Kids Day! The PTA plans some things during the day to make kids feel special. The theme this year is Heroes of Tomorrow. Students are invited to dress up as a superhero or a hero they want to become in the future. This is, of course, optional! The PTA will have some fun activities at recess times, and you are welcome to join if you would like. Our recess times are 10:45-11:00 and 2:15-2:30.
Reflections is a National PTA cultural arts competition that encourages students in Preschool –Grade 12 to express their thoughts, feelings, and creativity through the arts.

SBDM Committee Parents Needed
Veterans Park Elementary School-Based Decision-Making Council is made up of elective parents, teachers and the principal. The council seeks input from various committees within the school to assist them in obtaining information about the school and developing policies.
Last year the council spent countless hours revamping the committee policy to allow for the most efficient use of time and parent involvement. The following committees are seeking parent involvement and will meet on the fourth Tuesday of the month at 3:00 p.m. in September-April except for December. Click HERE to read a description of each committee and fill out an application.
