Our School Community
Village School students have an array of talents and strengths, and are appreciated for their individual qualities. As a whole, students can be described as engaged, enthusiastic, and confident learners who bring their curiosity and imagination to school activities, in and out of the classroom.
Student Council empowers students to become leaders in the school, local community, and beyond. Third through sixth grade students are eligible to participate and elections are held once a year. Our Student Council is comprised of three officers (President, Vice President, and Secretary) who are joined by grade level representatives. Duties of Student Council include leading all-school assemblies, helping run the Thanksgiving food drive, selecting spirit day themes, and promoting the Village Values. These students are encouraged to be role models and advocates of good citizenship, helping make Village School a safe and accepting place to learn.
Parent involvement at Village School is truly extraordinary and the Village School Parent Association (VSPA) is proud of the role we play in strengthening the ties between parents, teachers, and students. Our goal is to encourage as much parent involvement as possible. Whether you can give an hour per year or take a leadership position, we welcome your involvement. We have a variety of volunteer opportunities and committees to choose from. Volunteering with VSPA is a rewarding and worthwhile experience. The VSPA Executive Committee, as well as our Committee Chairs, look forward to having you join us and become an active participant in VSPA.
