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!
The yearbook committee needs YOU to take pictures and submit them. We will organize and compose the book from your pictures.
Be on the lookout for information on how to submit.
Thank you for helping us to make this the most interesting and unique book ever!
Attention all 5th grade parents!
Do not let this unforgettable year go by without recognizing your child's years at Vanderlyn. Purchase a yearbook ad for $30.
Thank you, Vikings!
Together we can do great things! This month, Vanderlyn joined forces with Austin, Chestnut, Dunwoody, and Kingsley Elementary Schools to fill the pantry shelves of both Malachi’s Storehouse and Dunwoody’s CAC branch. THANK YOU to those Vikings who donated close to 400 pounds of food and numerous boxes of hygiene products.
Please see the video (above) posted by the City of Dunwoody!
We all know and love Flat Stanley, and now we’d like to introduce you to Flat Vander!! He’s been SO LONELY in the halls of Vanderlyn, so he’s hoping his fellow Vanderlyn Vikings will create for him and/or take him on some new adventures!
All you need to do is print and cut him out, and then photograph him (with you) on any fun you are having… here, there, or anywhere!
Email Flat Vander at Flat.Vander@gmail.com with your photos. Then, be sure to follow our PTO's Facebook and Instagram pages to follow along with Vander’s adventures.
