Unity Day

Anti Bullying orange shirt

October 25th is Unity Day, a national campaign to prevent bullying. At VR, we are encouraging all students and staff to wear orange on this day. I included a link if anyone is interested in purchasing the official t-shirt for $12. This is not sponsored through the school, but I thought I'd forward the national campaign's shirt link.

"Bullying is never okay"

Remember Your Rock

Good Morning!
Don't forget to send a rock to school with your child, the size of a potato is best! We will be painting them this week and we want everyone to be able to participate.
Have a great day! ☺️ Mrs. Vargas

VR KIndness Rock Garden

painted rocks with kind messages in a rock garden

Attention All Parents!
We will be making a kindness rock garden inspired by the book "Only One You" and we are asking that every student bring a rock to school to paint. The best rocks to paint are smooth and 4-5 inches wide. If you can send more than one, that would be great in case a student doesn't have one. We will be collecting rocks this week and painting them the following week. Thanks for helping us with this school-wide art project and kindness campaign.
