A Message from our President

August 2017

Dear Villa Park Elementary Families,

Whether you are new to VPE or a returning family, it is my pleasure to welcome you to the 2017-2018 school year. If you reside close by, you may have noticed quite a bit of activity over the summer on our campus.  Great things are happening here at VPE and we can’t wait for you to be a part of it.

Our Home and School League is the organized, non-profit parent group at VPE and was created in 1931. The League is not a PTA but its purpose and goals are very similar. Our goals are to promote a well balanced academic experience and student enrichment that ensures our success. The Home and School League is truly dependent on your contributions. Your time, knowledge and resources will make a noticeable difference for our students and our VPE community. By becoming a member of the Home and School League, combined with your support throughout the year, it continues our ability to provide art and music enrichment, technology advancements, campus updates, physical education and educational assemblies. We invite you to become a member of our Home and School League.

The Home and School League general meetings will continue to be held on the third Thursday of the month at 8:15 am, in the VPE multi-purpose room (MPR). Please become a member today and join us once a month. These meetings are a great way to keep up to date on upcoming activities and hear from our Principal, Mrs. Little regarding school and district information. During this meeting, there is a grade level presentation from the students where they have the opportunity to present what they are currently learning.

I invite you to keep up to date with us via our website, www.vpe-hsl.org, like our Facebook page, Villa Park Elementary H&SL and follow us on Twitter at VPEHome&SchoolLeague. There is also a monthly edition of our publication, The Bobcat News, which is delivered to your inbox.

I am looking forward to a great year and I am excited to welcome everyone to the 2017-2018 school year. I invite you to volunteer when you can and become invested in our amazing school community. Together, we can make a difference.
