Field day is coming this Friday May 25th and we still need volunteers. This is a favorite day for the kids but we can’t pull it off without your help. We need volunteers to help setup in the morning, oversee the games, and help tear down in the afternoon. Please give a few hours of your time to make great memories for your child. Go to this link to volunteer.



Dads, please plan to attend the VRE Dads’ Club meeting next Monday, November 13th, at 7:30 PM in the VRE cafeteria. At the meeting we will:

  • Meet and Network
  • Discuss “Lunch With Dad”, Friday December 1st

Hi Dads,

Now is your last chance to order pizza if you want to eat while you attend the “Kubo and the Two Strings” tomorrow night at 6:30PM in the VRE cafeteria.  We’ll need to order the pizza early tomorrow so we’ll shut down the order form at that time. Please help us to order the correct number of pizzas and place your order now!


Kiran has set up a Whatsapp group for us at https://chat.whatsapp.com/KPzB287Oa71JDx33Kn45BA. This will allow us to communicate in a more immediate way and send reminders to you. If you aren’t familiar with Whatsapp, it’s a FREE messaging app that uses cellular data on your mobile phone to send SMS (i.e., “text” messages), and to make video and voice calls. You are not charged (other than the data) for these messages and calls. Please download Whatsapp from the Apple or Google store, install it, and subscribe to the link above if you are so inclined.

Also, some of you have mentioned that you don’t see the e-mails we send because they get routed to your Promotions or other folders. You can change the destination folder of any message by simply dragging the message to the folder into which you want it to be delivered in the future.


We will have our next dads club meeting tomorrow night (5/9) at 7:30PM. In an effort to increase participation, we are changing up things a bit this month and having the meeting at Buffalo Wild Wings (between “On the Border” and “Boston’s Restaurant”, in MacArthur Market Place). Topics we will discuss include:

  • Teacher Appreciation Breakfast
  • Golf Tournament
We really need your support so please come out to the meeting and get involved with your child’s school. See you Monday night!

The VRE Dads’ Club delivered a $1000 check to Ms. Arterbery last week to support the teachers and students at VRE. The funds are proceeds from the Cricket Tournament, Golf Outing, and other fund raising events held during the 2014-2015 school year. Thanks to all of you who made this donation possible with your physical or financial support.
