It’s difficult to imagine Vanguard without computers, the audio/visual equipment that record lectures, PowerSchool and our top-notch science labs. Thanks to the Vanguard Parent Organization (VPO), we don’t have to, because VPO generously provides many of these resources plus much, much more for Vanguard.
The VPO is made up of faculty, staff and parents of current Vanguard students. It operates in cooperation with the school to:
1. Enrich our academics such as the technology mentioned above, as well as extracurricular programs such as our athletic booster organization, the Viking Crew.
2. Provide support to the faculty, staff, students and parents such as our food and/or decorations for the Teacher/Staff Appreciation Luncheons, your time for Teacher Holiday Shopping Days, tokens of appreciation for Secret Pals, and care, concern and friendships for our New Family/Student Mentor program.
In the fall we ask Vanguard families to participate in the VPO’s brisket/turkey sale by selling to your friends and family and purchasing for yourself. In the spring, we ask the same for our Flower Sale.
Our 2012-13 VPO President is Beth Boehm. Beth would be delighted to tell you more about VPO volunteer opportunities. Call the school office to get in touch with her.
