A Message from our President

September 2019

Welcome back Bobcats!

It’s been said that enthusiasm is contagious.  It is my hope that I can share my enthusiasm about our amazing school with you during my time as the president of the Home & School League.  Our VPE community is truly remarkable, and I am thankful to be a part of it!

As we start this new school year and settle into our routines, let’s all make a conscious effort to be safe during drop-off and pick-up times.  Please use crosswalks, cross in groups, and demonstrate patience and courtesy to those around you.  It is our privilege and responsibility to set a good example for our kids!

Please remember to renew your Home & School League membership right away!  This nonprofit parent group was established in 1931, and its objective is to maintain the connection between the home and the school, so that parents, teachers, and staff can work together to give VPE students the best educational experience possible.  The H&SL provides art and music enrichment, technology upgrades, campus updates, PE, and educational assemblies.  Parent support makes it happen!  The H&SL is completely dependent on the direct contributions and fundraising efforts of the VPE community.  Please join today, and know that you will make a noticeable difference for our students!

H&SL members have access to the online school directory, and are invited to monthly meetings, held on the third Thursday of each month in the MPR at 8:15 a.m.  Your membership also comes with a special VPE Bobcats car decal!  

The first H&SL meeting of the year will take place on September 19.  Younger siblings are always welcome!  Please join us for news on upcoming activities, a report from Principal Beggs, and a visit from students with a presentation on current events in the classroom.  Coffee, snacks, and camaraderie are just a bonus!

Be sure to follow Villa Park Elementary H&SL on facebook, @VPESchool on twitter, and visit vpe-hsl.org to stay up-to-date with all things VPE! 

Here’s to a wonderful year!  Go Bobcats!
