Week at a Glance October 9-12

Dear VWS Families,

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone! I hope you’ve each had an enjoyable extended weekend. We jump right back in with a full and wonderful week of activities and opportunities; the details are below.

Give us thankful hearts… in this the season of Thy Thanksgiving. May we be thankful for health and strength, for sun and rain and peace. Let us seize the day and the opportunity and strive for that greatness of spirit that measures life not by its disappointments but by its possibilities, and let us ever remember that true gratitude… passes the gift joyfully on…
~W.E.B. Du Bois
