  • Summer Reading Program and Summer Open Library Hours

    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! Attached is directions along with your child’s username and password.

    Veterans Park has set a goal to read 800,00 minutes this summer!  To help us reach this goal, our school library will be open from June 11-July 23 on Tuesdays from 9:00-11:00 a.m. for check-out.  Students must be accompanied by an adult.

    The world record attempt begins May 6 and concludes September 6, 2019. 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.

    Here are a few simple ways to help your child become a record-breaking reader:

    •  Set a goal together and encourage reading throughout the summer, with library visits, story time at home, and conversations about books. Let your child see you reading.
    • 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.
    • Track our school’s reading progress at
    • Download summer reading booklists chosen specifically for your child’s age at

    If your child forgets his/her username or password, please contact me directly or contact Scholastic at 1-800-SCHOLASTIC or  If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at

  • Immunization Changes

    The Kentucky Department of Education has mandated new immunization certificates beginning with the 2018-19 school year for every student in the Commonwealth.  New state laws requiring all students to be immunized for Hepatitis A and students 16 years of age and older to receive the Meningococcal ACWY (MCV4) vaccine created the need for new certificates for every student.  If you have not had a chance to take care of these new requirements, please find time over the winter break to obtain certificates for your students from your healthcare provider. Students not in compliance may be excluded from attendance, especially in the event of widespread illness.  If you are unsure if your student's records are up-to-date, please check with his or her school when we return to school on January 3, 2019.
