Upcoming Even

December 10-14, 2018: VRA Shoes and Socks Drive

Fourth Annual VRA Shoes and Socks Drive

December 10-14, 2018

We are hoping to collect 100+ new or gently used pairs of sneakers (children’s & adult sizes) and 200 pairs of new socks. All donations will be directed to our sister school, Southwoods Elementary, and the Salvation Army in St. Augustine.

Southwoods Elementary is a Title I school where the majority of their families receive services and assistance. Southwoods Elementary has been designated as a “Community School” by the School District, providing services to the families in that area beyond the scope of a typical elementary school.

We will be taking in donated items in the VRA front office, as well as in my classroom-Room 404. Students who bring donated items will receive (2) Hawk Bucks for each donation.


Send to a friend, send to your teacher, or to your whole class for

It’s time to start thinking about purchasing the 2018-2019 yearbook. We are doing things a little differently this year.
1. There will only be online ordering of the 2018-2019 yearbook. Leonard’s online can take payments from credit and debit cards as well from a checking account.

2. We have three price tiers by date. Prices are as follows :

$15 until January 1st
$25 from Jan 2-March 1st
$35 after March 2nd

Informational flyers will be coming home with your student in the next day or two.
Orders can be placed at www.leonards.com/yearbooks access code: C449531

If you have any questions or concerns please contact me.
