We have been celebrating March is Reading Month with our students here at VPS the last few weeks. Today, Superintendent Blackwell made her last reading stop of the month when she visited Mrs. Taylor's 4th grade class to read, Willbee the Bumblebee. Central families ask your students what book Ms. Blackwell read when she visited their class
The students and staff at Vassar Public Schools wish everyone a safe and happy Spring break. Enjoy this time off with family and friends. We look forward to seeing students when school resumes on Monday, April 3!

Hey class of 2023! Graduation is right around the corner, and if you haven't completed the FAFSA yet, time is running out! Delta is holding several Financial Aid workshops over the next couple of months. They have some dates coming up where you can get the help you need, including a virtual session you could attend from the comfort of your home. Don't forget that the FAFSA is a required element in your Senior Project. If you need a hand, check out the sessions on March 27th or the Virtual one on March 30th. It might be the easiest way to move this to the "done" list. Please see the attached schedule for these or other planned sessions.
