Parent Meeting:   August 25, 2018. The VHSA Parent Meeting Fall Kickoff Dessert Potluck will be held Saturday, August 25th at 3pm under the pavilion at Pioneer Park in Scottsbluff! This is a great chance to hear what VHSA has been, and will be up to, but more importantly, to offer your ideas and suggestions and build our homeschool community!

 

The whole family is invited! The kids can play on the playground equipment (or bring a football or frisbee or two), and the parents will meet under the pavilion.

BRING A DESSERT TO SHARE! 🙂 We’ll provide the napkins, plates, and forks.  August Parent Meeting Minutes
