Supporting Our Village
Parent Pledge Program (PPP)
The PPP (Parent Pledge Program) is the backbone to our budget. Our budget supports the basics like teacher salaries and rent. We need every family to participate in the PPP in some form! We request $125/month, but any amount is helpful to our bottom line! Please fill out this form if you haven’t already.
There are many other ways to help our Village. In addition to supporting VCS through Parent Participation hours, and through the Program Pledge Program parents also help by planning and supporting a variety of fundraisers throughout the year.
eScrip and Amazon Smile
Two of these fundraisers are eScrip and Amazon Smile, which anyone and everyone–friend, neighbor, relatives–can do to help support our school. They’re easy, FREE ways for everyone to get involved in our fundraising efforts. There is no cost to the cardholder! By doing your regular shopping around town and on Amazon.com, you earn money for our school. If you are not already signed up with E-Scrip or Amazon Smile, do it today. Help us earn $$ for our village.
