Dear Village School Parents,
During Monday’s assembly we recognized some outstanding VS mathematicians! Each year 4th, 5th, and 6th graders compete in a Math Olympiad, a series of monthly contests that runs November through March and draws students from all over the globe. Our students excelled – see details at the end of this letter. Well done VS mathletes!

Many thanks to Colleen Mintzer for hosting our room parents’ breakfast on Tuesday – the charming surroundings and convivial atmosphere were perfect ingredients for ongoing community-building. As Coordinator, Colleen keeps everything beautifully organized and room parents feel informed and in positions of knowledge – all so very helpful for communicating with fellow parents!

Next week, students in 3rd – 6th grades will be taking ERBs. As always, the best thing you can do in preparation is to send your child to school each morning after a good night’s sleep and a nutritious breakfast!
For your advanced calendar: join us for Breakfast with Barbara on Tuesday, May 7th, at 8am in the Library, to talk about Changing Boundaries for Adolescents. CLICK HERE to RSVP.
