Your Vanderlyn PTO partners with local and national companies that are committed to enriching the educational opportunities at our school. By participating in these events and programs, you can make a difference! Monies generated by these events and programs are submitted to the PTO Annual Fund and used to continue to enhance the academic excellence at Vanderlyn.
Each month you can take a break from cooking and meet your fellow Vanderlyn Vikings at one of your favorite local restaurants for dinner. Spirit Nights are a great opportunity to socialize with other Vanderlyn families and raise funds for our school. Portions of the proceeds generated on spirit nights are submitted to the PTO Annual Fund. Spirit Nights are typically held on Wednesday and Thursday nights.
