Commodore Parent-Teacher Group
Who Are We?
We are a group of parents, teachers, and administrators who began meeting December 2010. Just as the Boosters support athletics and Friends of Music supports the music program, our purpose is to support academics at VUHS.
"To encourage and support academic achievement through the promotion of family involvement in the school, enrichment programs, and communication between parents, teachers and administrators."
What Activities Are We Engaged In?
We have identified our key areas of commitment as (1) facilitating communication between the school, teachers, and parents, (2) providing enrichment programs for the students, (3) lending support to school initiatives and (4) helping to build a stronger school community.
To date, we have provided baked goods for students during NECAP testing, coordinated the weekly e-News, initiated a school walk-through by PIRC (Parent Information Resource Center) for the purpose of making our school more family-friendly, lent support for the middle school reading raffle, raised the funding for the free family passes to the Maritime Museum and organized the 2011 and 2012 Back to School Nights.
The Commodore Parent Teacher Group is looking for members to help with our growing list of initiatives including Back to School Night, the annual Rummage Sale, baking snacks during NECAPS, developing information packets for parents, and more. Please let us know if you would like to join us in our efforts. We would love to have you. Contact Carla Mayo at Cmayo(at)anwsu.org. Please let us know if you have ideas to help us in our mission to promote family involvement in the school, improve communication between parents, teachers and administrators and provide enrichment programs for the students. We welcome your input!
Annual Events Organized by the CPTG
1. September Back-To-School Night - designed to allow parents to meet teachers and kick-off another great school year
2. January 16th Curriculum Night - designed to answer questions about high school course selection for the following school year (more information on this coming soon)
3. Annual Spring Rummage Sale April 6, 2013 - to raise the funds to provide enrichment programs for our students
In December 2011 we began "VUHS e-News". Each week a parent liaison for each grade level gathers news, announcements, and information from VUHS staff/faculty about happenings and upcoming events. Each Friday parents who we have email addresses for will receive an e-News email. If you do not receive this email, contact Jay at jstetzel(at)anwsu.org to be added to the list.
The Commodore Parent Teacher Group welcomes any announcements or news you would like to share with the school community. Please contact Carla Mayo at cmayo(at)anwsu.org by Wednesday of the preceding week. Thanks to those parents who have sent along news!
When Do We Meet?
We meet every month at 7:00 PM in the school library. The next meeting is Tuesday January 22, 2013.
