Support VPES

We encourage and appreciate any support our VPES families and community can provide. If you're interested in supporting our school, here is a current list of ways you can contribute. Together, we're all better! 
  • Food City - Link your Value Card yearly so your shopping turns into dollars for our school. 
  • Box Tops for Education - Please cut, collect, and save Box Tops and send them in to our school. We are currently using Box Top dollars to purchase two-way radios for efficient communication and added safety throughout our building and outside playground areas. 
  • Reading Buddies - Donate a small portion of your time to read with a child weekly and make a huge impact. Email Mr. Rader at [email protected] for more information.
