We wish you all a warm welcome or welcome back to Vergennes Union Elementary School. Our first day of school this year will be Wednesday, August 28, 2019. We hosted summer services and childcare for the whole district this summer, so we have had quite a busy summer. We work with about 100 students from throughout the district. Our teachers and support staff have been busily preparing for an exciting and inspiring year of learning. The custodial staff continues to beautify our buildings and grounds and works tirelessly to do so.
We look forward to a great year teaching and learning with your student or students. We have some new teachers, some teachers in new roles and some staff joining us, and others who departed. There are a number of new staff members that are joining us this year. Look in upcoming newsletters and other posts to get to know them a little bit more. We are excited that they are joining our team. It’s an Olympic year, we will have regular walk and roll to school days, it is also a Talent Show year and we will continue to practice and model Respect, Ownership, Attitude, Responsibility and Safety. ROARS!
Registration for sports is again online this year. You may access registration by going to the following website https://sites.google.com/anwsd.org/ves-athletics. We can support you should you need it. Anyone interested in coaching should contact the front office to start that paperwork.
