Vedder Elementary is a special learning community where students, staff and parents are engaged in meaningful learning each day. Vedder's mission is to be a community that inspires strong character and powerful thinking. Our goal is, "How will a school wide focus on powerful thinking foster literacy, numeracy and social responsibility?"
Spread The Net - Can Drive
A group of Grade 6 students are continuing their fundraiser to purchase nets to help prevent the spread of malaria in Africa. The group is collecting cans and bottles beginning Jan. 19th through Jan. 30th.
Nut Free Building
Just a friendly reminder that we are a "Nut Free Zone." Please keep this in mind as you pack your student's lunches.
Disabled Parking Spots
Please ensure that you are not taking or blocking our disabled parking spots - even if it is for a quick drop off. There are very few of these spots and we have students/parents who need accessible parking. Be considerate and find another place to park!
January Virtues: Determination and Helpfulness
Principal's Message: Happy New Year! With another new calendar year comes many hopes and dreams of what is to come in 2015. As tradition dictates, a new year often means forging a RESOLUTION. Here at Vedder Elementary we are looking forward to continuing our RESOLVE of creating a community that inspires strong character and powerful thinking. Our virtues for January are determination and hopefulness. We have a busy month ahead with cultural experiences, anti-bullying sessions, Bears Athletic events, and school spirit activities. Please continue to check the school website for regular calendar and teacher updates. We want to say thank-you for your input and support and as always, please don’t hesitate to contact your child’s teacher, or myself, if you have questions or want to share. Vedder is truly an amazing learning community and it is a gift to be learning alongside such wonderful students. Mrs. P. Jordan
