December Book Fair is THIS WEEK

The ever-popular December Book Fair will be held in the VES Library December 9th-13th. Family night is Wednesday, December 11th from 5:00–8:00 p.m. If you’re interested in volunteering, please sign up here.

Family Dance and Teacher Raffle

On Friday, December 13th from 6:30-8:00 p.m. in the VES gym, dust off your dancing shoes and mark your calendar for a beloved VES event -- the Family Dance and Teacher Raffle! Our very own music teacher Mr. Reynolds will once again serve as DJ. He has promised that this year's dance will be bigger and brighter than last year's, so start practicing those moves! Tickets for the teacher raffle can be purchased online prior to the dance via PayPal on the PTA website and with cash at the dance. All students must be accompanied by an adult.

Advanced Academics Level IV

This is a friendly reminder that the deadline for referring students in Grades 2-7 for AAP full-time Level IV consideration is due no later than January 9, 2020.  Parents are welcome to submit early, but no late referrals will be accepted.  We advise parents not to wait for pending abilities test scores if they would like their student screened. While the Grade 2 screening pool casts a starting point for screening some students, test scores are only one factor in the eligibility decision.  Please contact our AART, Mrs. Martinez, if you have any questions.

Dining for Dollars Continues in 2020 with Mod Pizza and Chipotle 

Mark your calendars! Dining for Dollars returns to Mod Pizza on Wednesday, January 15th (ALL DAY! 10:30 am-10:00 p.m.) and to Chipotle (4:00-8:00 p.m.) on Tuesday, February 11th!

IMPORTANT ACTION ITEM: one new twist is that Mod now requires 20 people to RSVP on their link. If we don't get 20 RSVPs, they could cancel! So please take a moment and click here to say you're coming. And then download the Mod and Chipotle flyers and show them to the cashier to help raise money for our school!

Amazon Smile 

If you shop at Amazon, please use the  Amazon School Special Link, select Vienna Elementary School PTA (Virginia) as your charity of choice, and shop as you would normally. Alternatively, you can go through our PTA website link at the bottom of the home page to make sure we are benefiting from each purchase. Vienna Elementary automatically gets 4-10% of purchases, which can mean big money for our school! Save the link to your desktop or bookmark on your browser for all your future purchases.

Harris Teeter

Please register your VIC card on the Harris Teeter website to earn money for our school with every purchase through their Together in Education Program: 

If you already linked your VIC card in the past, be sure to re-link it today by clicking on the “Link To Your School” link on the website and finding the Vienna Elementary School (no school ID required).
