We're excited to start the 2017-2018 school year with all of the amazing students, parents, teachers, administration, staff and community at Vanalden. As the official parent organization of Vanalden, we are here to help support the school through building community, helping the teachers and administration, organizing events and raising funds to support enrichment activities and programs.
During the first month of school, we will be sending out a letter with more information about the many wonderful opportunities throughout the school year to come together as a community and support Vanalden and all of our children, as well as a collection envelope for PTA membership dues.
With your help and participation, last year the PTA completed the following fundraisers and activities: After-School Pizza Sales, Piece of Cake Popcorn & Snack Catalog Fundraiser, Color Fun Run, PTA Holiday Sale, Winter Concert Refreshments Sale, Vanalden's Annual Jog-A-Thon Fundraiser for the Accelerated Reader (AR) Program, Pyramid of Success Mural Paintings across campus, Teacher/Staff Appreciation Luncheon, and the International Dance Assembly. All proceeds from the fundraisers went towards programs for our children and school such as the YMCA Play Program (Physical Education), field trips and bus transportation, AR, campus beautification, 5th grade culmination activities, Teachers/Staff Appreciation Luncheon, International Dance Assembly, etc. Thank you for your support!
To find out more about upcoming events and ways to participate and help our school, join us during our monthly PTA meetings (dates will be announced soon). And if you are unable to attend our PTA meetings (or even if you can), you can also stay informed about what's happening with the PTA by liking us on Facebook

We always welcome your ideas, comments, questions and concerns and are here to talk to you and work together to make Vanalden the best school possible for all of our children. Stop by the Parent Center in the mornings or send us a quick email at firstname.lastname@example.org
