Vanderlyn Elementary’s 5th grade class overwhelmingly decided, in lieu of an end of year celebration or gift for the school, to donate their collected money to Malachi’s Storehouse. These students felt it important to help those in our community impacted by hunger, particularly now that the number of those with food insecurity has increased due to Covid-19. Congratulations VES Class of 2020 – this giving spirit will take you far!

All families were sent an Intent to Return Form from DCSD. Parents/guardians will have a choice of hybrid learning or distance/remote learning. Intent to Return Forms must be completed by Friday, October 23rd. Click here to complete the Intent to Return form for each child you have at Vanderlyn.
All families were also sent a separate Vanderlyn survey from Mrs. Crenshaw. The information from the Vanderlyn survey is for local school planning purposes, and the results will assist us in developing a Vanderlyn Elementary Face-to-Face reopening plan.
