Spring Grounds Clean-Up Day
Vanderlyn Elementary/Dunwoody Baptist Church
Saturday, March 24, 9:30 am-12:30 pm
Spring is in the air! Warmer weather is on the way, and with it, an opportunity to spruce up our Vanderlyn Campus.
Please join us in front of the school at 9:30 am. Bring the whole family—there’s a job for everyone! We would also appreciate any yard equipment you can bring along for the day—especially any pruning shears or branch trimmers. They are especially useful. We will also need rakes, shovels, leaf blowers, wheel barrows, gloves, etc. Bring your people and/or your equipment, and enjoy a beautiful day working alongside fellow Vanderlyn families. We appreciate your help! We will provide water and snacks!

Book Swap Wrap Up from Mrs. Pansini
Dear Vanderlyn Families,
I want to thank everyone who participated in the book swap, and I hope our students are enjoying the new books they received!
I also want to thank the PTO for partnering with me and all the parents who signed up to volunteer. While I decided I didn't need the heart-warming and overwhelming offers of help I now know that I did need some assistance. I want to thank Vidya Chandrasekhar and Adrienne Ferendez for jumping in to lend much needed hands.
On March 9, almost 500 books were delivered to the DeKalb International Student Center. The Center's administrative team and their librarian wanted me to extend thanks to our families and to let everyone know how much their school and families will benefit from this gift. The books will be going into their parent resource area where families will be able to select books for their homes. The eighteen or so books with the highest reading level were too advanced for the center and will be given to the Vanderlyn after school program.
With warmth and much appreciation,
Mrs. Pansini, Vanderlyn Librarian
