Hello Valley Ranch Elementary Supporters,
Well the short, cool (relatively speaking) summer is almost over and it’s time for the VRE Dads Club to have its kick off meeting for the new school year. We have lots of ideas for events we can sponsor during the upcoming school year and many things to discuss. The planning meeting will be held next Tuesday, September 16th at 8PM in the Valley Ranch Elementary Library. Light snacks will be served! Bring your friends and neighbors who are also VRE dads; we need all the help we can get! The more of us who participate, the less amount of time each of us has to contribute individually.
You have probably noticed something different about this message. We are trying to become a bit more automated (working our way into the 21st century!). As such, we have a new website at www.vredads.org. We’ll be posting messages and events to this site and you should automatically receive an e-mail whenever a new post is added. We believe this will make it easier for you to keep track of the different volunteer opportunities, and hopefully it will improve participation rates. So please take a look at the website and provide feedback regarding what you would like to see on it!
Also, if you have moved out of the area or no longer want to be included on this mailing list, please send me an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org (or just reply to this message) and I’ll be happy to remove you from the list. In the future we hope to implement a mailing list service that has automatic subscribe / unsubscribe capabilities, but for now we’ll just do it this way.
Finally, if you haven’t volunteered recently (or never) you should really consider it this year; check out the front page of the website for all the ways that parent involvement improves student performance. A big thanks to all of you who have volunteered in the past and plan to volunteer again this year; we really appreciate the difference you make at VRE!
President VRE Dads Club
