We are happy to announce all 5th grade events have been approved and are in the final stages of planning. Next week a 5th grade promotion packet will be sent home with on-campus students and VLA will get the packet via email. Please look over it carefully and return them to school or print, sign, and email it back on or before the date listed on each flyer. You will also get an email for a sign up to help volunteer in the areas needed to help make the events successful. If you give us your time, we will have the 2nd and 3rd rows of Promotion seating reserved for our volunteers. Please sign up if you can help.
