At Virginia Court, we are committed to facilitating purposeful learning experiences and nurturing our community to be problem-solvers who are resilient and culturally responsive in a global society. 

We want to welcome you to the 2017-18 school year at Virginia Court!
There are several exciting events ahead in the coming weeks. We hope to see you at many of them!


Parent Update   

November 17, 2017


Upcoming Events next week:

  • Monday, November 20 Community Soup and Bread Night from 5:30-6:30.  Come break bread with us, meet your neighbors and other VC families, and learn about college and career readiness.  Bring a favorite dish to share; we will provide soup and bread.  We are thankful for you and want to celebrate the season together!  We will also have opportunities for families to talk about college and career readiness – it’s never too early to begin planning for a successful future!  We will also have free coats available for students who need them.
  • Monday, November 20-December 4 PTO Butter Braid fundraiser
  • Wednesday-Sunday, November 22-26 No School, Thanksgiving Break
  • Tuesday, November 28 2:30 PTO Meeting.  Childcare will be provided.
  • Friday, December 1 8:00 Parent Coffee. Our topic will be how to support your child in math.

Winter weather is here!  When temperatures are above 20 degrees, students will be outdoors in the morning and at lunch recess.  When it is colder than 20 degrees and/or it is raining or snowing, students will be indoors.  Join us at Community Soup and Bread Night if your child needs a warm coat.

We are committed to keeping our school a safe place.  We count on your partnership in this area:

  • All visitors must check into the main office and receive a visitor’s badge anytime they will be in our building between the hours of 7:15 and 2:30.
  • We also ask that you park on Virginia Court or in designated areas of Troy Street. It is unsafe to have vehicles moving in our parking lot before and after school because there are many students walking there.
  • Please pay close attention to crosswalks on both Troy and Virginia Court. It is state law that vehicles must stop for pedestrians in those crosswalks.

Thank you for adhering to these safety guidelines and respecting our hard-working staff who are enforcing them. 

I hope that Thanksgiving is a joyful time for you and your family.  We are thankful for our students and their families who make our work so meaningful and joyful each day!
