Hello VES Families!
The yearbook would love to include your photos of school events in the yearbook! As volunteer opportunities open up again, there will be many opportunities for you to take pictures of our students. The yearbook is currently looking for first day of school photos, spirit night photos, and 5th grade Going West photos. As always, please make sure the photo is of VES students and make sure no students are showing hand signs or gestures.
Upload will occur through the ReplayIt website on your laptop or desktop. The site does not work well from a cell phone browser.
