DON'T FORGET - THE VLM HOLIDAY CRAFT SHOP IS TOMORROW, THURSDAY, DECEMBER 19!

A Holiday Craft Fair for VLM Students and Families!  A Murray Tradition!
 
Who: All VLM Students
What: A Holiday Craft Fair with most items made by 5th graders.  All items will be between $1-$5 (whole dollar amounts, no coins necessary), with most items on the lower end.  There will also be a free wrapping station so students can have their gifts all wrapped and ready for giving! The money will go to towards the 5th grade Virginia Beach Field trip.
Where: VLM Gym
When: Thursday, December 19th, 1:00-2:45pm.  Each student will have the opportunity to go to the shop during school.  Parents can shop at pickup.
Why: Students can do some shopping 'on their own' to give gifts to friends and family.
 
Items will sell out quickly.  Have your child bring money to school if they would like to shop. Come see what beautiful and creative craft items our 5th graders have crafted.
 
Some items in the sale are not crafted items, but gifts chosen by 5th graders that they think will appeal to our students.

FALL FUND DRIVE
Thank you to all of the families who donated to our very successful Fall Fund Drive! All tax receipts will be sent by January 15.  If you don't receive one by that time please contact Lindley Stakem at vicepres@vlmpto.org.

PARENTS, PLEASE CHECK THE LOST & FOUND
Parents – Has your child lost a jacket or coat?  Please look in the Lost and Found (located in the back of the gym).  This is a good time to remind you to label your child’s belongings.  Thanks!

YOUR TEACHERS' FAVORITE THINGS
With the holidays approaching, we wanted to remind any Murray families who like to show appreciation during this time that the PTO Hospitality Committee has created a list of our teachers' and staff members' favorite things. Our goal is to provide guidance and help make things a bit easier for you during the holiday season. Check out this page to learn all about your teachers.
