January Principal's Newsletter
February 1, 2019
Dear Parents, Guardians & Students,
This month the character theme is “Fair Play”. Eleanor Roosevelt said “It is not fair to ask of others what you are not willing to do yourself.” We will discuss our PBIS topic in class and throughout the building all month.
February 7th from 5:30-8:30 p.m. @ VCES
As we continue our celebration of “Culture, Kindness and Tolerance” we hope our students are taking away a powerful message and are sharing it with you at home. We will continue to respect and celebrate diversity at Van Cort each day. I hope to see you at our third PTA sponsored Multicultural evening, which will take place on February 1st. Last year, this evening was a great success and we are sure that this year it will be even bigger and better! VCES, LCBMS and Panas will host the night as a team.
VAN CORT CELEBRATES COMMUNITY
We are very excited to continue with the “Van Cort Celebrates Community” initiative. This enables anyone to give a shout-out for a special Van Cort adult community member who has gone above and beyond. All requests must please come from adults. This is similar to how we celebrate our students at our Character Education assemblies and in our quarterly newsletters. The shout-outs will be posted on our Facebook page on a monthly basis.
Every month, your shout-out should be emailed VCCelebratesCommunity@LakelandSchools.org. In the subject line please write “VC Community Shout-out”. You will need to enter the name of the person receiving the shout-out and why they deserve this honor. All shout-outs will be reviewed for approval by Principal Woodruff. The deadline for all shout-out emails will be posted each month either on Facebook or through email. Sorry, but any emails received after the deadline will not get the chance to be posted until the following month.
The success of “Van Cort Celebrates Community” on your Facebook page depends on you. The deadline for February shout-outs will be Friday, February 22, 2019.
