Spirit Nights

Each month you can take a break from cooking and meet your fellow Vanderlyn Vikings at one of your favorite local restaurants for dinner.

Box Tops for Education Program


The old Box Top Program is being phased out. When you see the new label, use the Box Top app to scan your receipt and Vanderlyn earns 10 cents for each label. We will continue to collect Box Tops during this transition. 


Clip Box Top labels from eligible products and turn them into the school. Box Tops will be collected twice a year. Ziploc collection bags will be sent home via your child's VIP folder and you can return to their teacher.
