WELCOME TO A NEW SCHOOL YEAR!

I hope everyone had a wonderful summer break!  For those of you who are new to our school, “Welcome!” and for those who are returning “Welcome Back!”  I am looking forward to another great year at the Villages Charter School.

Mrs. Rice has accepted a new position this year…she is now the Vice Principal at the Primary Center.  Congratulations to her!  That means we have a new gifted education teacher joining the team… Mrs. Shannon Cree.  She has been here at VCS for several years teaching 3rd and 4th grade.  She is a great addition to the team and I know the students will enjoy working with her.

We have finalized our class schedules, so be sure to check the PDF document below to note your child's teacher, day and time for class.  Our newsletters will be posted at the end of each month.  Please take a moment to read the August newsletter (see PDF below).  

Please feel free to contact me anytime at Shari.Stafford@tvcs.org or call 352-259-6850 ext. 4511.
