The Book Fair is coming to the
Vaughn Road Library
Monday, April 24 to Friday, April 28
The NED Show came to Vaughn Road on Wednesday, April 19 to spread the message to Never Give Up, Encourage Others, and Do Your Best. Children who follow NED's message can achieve great success and become champions in academics, sports, and anything they want to do. During the show the children were shown several yo-yo tricks and had lots of fun interacting with our NED show presenter. Beginning Monday, April 24 students will have the opportunity to purchase yo-yos and supplies that were demonstrated in the NED show during their weekly counseling time with Dr. Ross. A price list will be sent home with your child.
Vaughn Road Students Are Motivated
TO DO THEIR BEST on the ACT Aspire Tests!
On Friday, April 7 the Third, Fourth, and Fifth grade students participated in the 2017 ACT Aspire Kickoff Assembly organized by Dr. Ross. Vaughn Road was pleased to welcome Yvette Bullard-Dillard, Educational Specialist with MPS as a special guest to assist with the program. The afternoon began with a selection of pep music and school spirit cheers provided by the Brewbaker Middle School Band and their director, Benjamin Brown.
Prior to the assembly, the Third, Fourth, and Fifth grade classes were challenged with the task of creating cheers to motivate others to do their best during testing. Each grade level had an opportunity to present their cheer. The Fifth graders are really excited about doing their best on the test! Several Fourth and Fifth grade students also presented a dance routine to demonstrate the importance of Positive Study Skills Preparation. All the children were impressed when several faculty members took to the stage to perform a motivational cheer. A few teachers even stayed on the stage to perform a dance too!
Rashad Provitt, the founder of Choose One or Lose One (COLO) spoke to the students about the importance of discipline, dedication, and determination in achieving their goals. To conclude the assembly musical entertainment was provided by saxophonist, Ron Handy and vocalist, Christina Mims.
Thank You To The Wounded Warriors!
On Thursday, March 30 the Kindergarten, First, and Second Grade students were extremely excited to receive a visit from two members of the Wounded Warriors Project and Lewis the Duck for "Warrior Day". The members of Wounded Warriors shared their love of reading with the children as they read stories of Lewis the Duck's adventures. Afterwards, the children received a delicious afternoon snack courtesy of Homewood Suites, one of the sponsors that allows the Warriors and Lewis to travel from school to school.
