This holiday season, Vassar 6-12 was able to help 20 students and their families have a very Merry Christmas! We were able to gift presents to every child in the home and provide food including a $30 food voucher good at any grocery store. We were also able to help provide food for 5 Central Elementary families. We would like to thank our staff and members of their families who took the time to adopt a family, shop and wrap presents so all of our children have a bright Christmas morning. We would also like to give a big shout out to the companies, organizations and community members who sponsored Christmas for our Vassar students. We couldn’t do all that we do if it was not for their generosity and kindness.
Good Evening Vulcan Families! Tomorrow Friday, December 17 is a half day for students due to teacher professional development in the afternoon.
Vulcan Families, we will have a double run tonight on the Lion Bus #21-5. Students riding the lion bus will be dropped off later than normal.

Our 6th grader's hydroponics experiment is a success! Over the past few weeks our 6th graders have been learning about hydroponics in these awesome grow pods in our halls! We have two pods with one located at the high school end of the building and one located at the middle school end. Mrs. Plesko and Mr. Tallman have worked together on the experiment with 6th grade students and today all of our students and staff get the opportunity to partake in the harvest! Today's salads and anything using lettuce will be made with the lettuce grown by our 6th graders! Our own farm to table is happening here at the Vassar 6-12 building! A special thank you to the cafeteria staff for being involved in completing the student's experiment!
