  • Scholastic Book Fair

     
    Scholastic Book Fair, December 12-16 
    Your students should be bringing home catalogues for our upcoming Scholastic Book Fair, December 12-16!  Students will have a chance to fill out "wishlists" making it easier to pick out the titles they want, and even their teachers will have wishlists of titles they'd like to see added to their classroom libraries. Books always make great gift ideas, and our book fair just so happens to be the last week of school before Winter Break! Students will be able to shop during library time, and the fair will be open at drop off and pick up each day. You can also shop the book fair online until December 9 at Scholastic.com  Remember, all Scholastic Book Fair purchases made benefit our school!  See you at the Book Fair!
    If anyone is interested in volunteering during the book fair, there is a sign-up sheet in the school office.

  • What is a Community?

Principal's
Message

  • Welcome to Vestal--thank you for visiting our new website!

     

    We are focused this year on the vision statement: “One community. Every child.” What does that mean?

     

    It means that, at Vestal, we believe every adult--administrators, teachers, staff, parents and guardians, community partners--shares responsibility for the success of every child.

     

    It means that, at Vestal, we come together as a community to celebrate our successes and we come together as a community to navigate our struggles.

     

    It means that, at Vestal, every child matters. We work to make every child feel included, valued, challenged, and engaged. Children’s needs differ, so our approaches and responses must differ. If we don’t get the approach right the first time, we are obligated to try again.

     

    Families and partners, I invite you to check this site regularly so that you can stay in the loop on community events, happenings, celebrations, and needs. We also post regularly on our school Facebook page (PPS Vestal School)--feel free to follow us there as well.

     

    Please know that my door is always open. I am best reached by phone (503.916.6437) or email (eglasgow@pps.net). You can also find me at the Front Door almost every morning during arrival and in and out of the Main Office during most school days.
