A Message from our President

​August 2016

Dear Villa Park Elementary Families,

On behalf of the Villa Park Elementary Home & School League, I would like to extend a warm welcome to you all. I hope you enjoyed a relaxing summer and are looking forward to an exciting and successful year.

The Home & School League(H&SL) is the organized, non-profit parent group at VPE and was created in 1931 to “create a closer relationship between home and school.” The league is not a PTA but its purpose and goals are similar: We are here for the children. VPE is dependent on the H&SL to maintain the excellent academic experience and student enrichment that attributes to our success. We need your continued support. Your contribution whether it is time, knowledge or resources makes a huge difference. Take the first step! Join the H&SL by filling out the membership form and returning to school with $20.00 per family. By doing so, you will be listed in and receive our school directory. Your support during the school year continues to provide art and music enrichment, physical education, educational assemblies, technology advancement and much needed campus updates, just to name a few.

Our 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). Come join us! This is a great way to find out about upcoming activities on campus throughout the school year. Most importantly, our principal, Mrs. Little gives updates on school and district happenings and answers questions. Also, each month a grade level is highlighted where students present to members what they are currently learning.

There are many ways to keep up to date on the events at school and in the community. Visit our website, www.vpe-hsl.org, like our Facebook page, Villa Park Elementary H&SL and follow us on twitter at VPEHome&SchoolLeague. We also continue to have a monthly edition of the Bobcat News that is sent electronically.

I look forward to welcoming both our new families and “seasoned” families back for the 16-17 school year. I invite everyone to become involved and invested in our awesome school community. Please feel free to contact me at any time at 949-636-9654 or president@vpe-hsl.org. I hope to see you at Back to School Night on August, 30th.

Kind Regards,

Julie Krodel

President – Home & School League
