    Each yearbook comes with 2 customizable pages which are FREE and printed only in YOUR book. Want more custom pages? Each additional 2 pages is just $0.99.

    For every yearbook sold, Trees for the Future plants a tree in our school’s name. This grove of trees is planted by local families in countries devastated by deforestation and global climate change. Each year, these trees will replace many tons of pollution from the atmosphere with life-giving oxygen.

    To date, VCS yearbook sales have planted 648 trees and counting!

     ➤ Whole-School Farmer’s Market at VCS

    Wednesday, May 29th from 12:30-1:00

    Hello, Awesome VCS Community!

    As some of you may know, Ashley!’s class has been partnering with different classrooms this school year in hosting Farmer’s Markets on our very own Village Charter School campus.

    It’s been so much fun to use our creativity and skills to craft food items, special crafts, and gardening items. As we approach the end of the year, we thought it would be great to have one large, whole-school Farmer’s Market for our final market. If your family is willing and able to participate, we would love to welcome your wares. We do want the items to be student-made so, should you choose to join us, please help your student in: crafting, creating, growing, baking, or cooking whatever they choose.

    We ask that families follow some of our simple guidelines:

    ● Please find sustainable ways to present your product. We would love to avoid things like lots of plastic packaging or single-use items. We will be asking the whole community to bring their own bags, plates/bowls, cups, and utensils, so that they can enjoy their purchased products.

    ● Consider making items out of recycled materials or leftover crafts, so that we do not create extra waste and, instead, use what we have!

    ● Please use your creativity with recipes so that we are avoiding heavily processed or sugary foods–sweets are great, but consider what alternatives to sugar can be used when crafting your delicious delicacies!

    ● There’s no need to make something for the entire student population! I’m sure we will have a lot to buy, so think around 15-30 pieces to sell.

    ● Please no store-bought items. On the day of the market, you may bring items directly to Ashley!’s classroom at the beginning of the school day. Please also create a sign for your item that includes ingredients, what the item is, and perhaps a picture of the item! Families are welcome to come to the market from 12:30-1:00 as well.

    Thank you, all!
