WE APPRECIATE YOU !

Van Gogh expresses a HUGE THANKS to:

 

The Patriot Oil Community Benefit Trust Fund for their generous donation to support ALL of our technological needs for the 2019-20 School Year!!!

 

Our Friends of Van Gogh PTO for their hard work and commitment to fundraising to meet the needs of Van Gogh. We appreciate their support in funding teacher assistants, computer lab assistant, library aide, psychiatric social worker, and the YMCA Play program for the 2019-20 School Year!!!

 

LOST AND FOUND

Please label your student's jackets, backpacks, and lunch boxes with their name.  This will help ensure that lost items may be found.  Our collection of unclaimed items grows rapidly and is donated to charity at the end of each month.

 

Peanut Policy

Please support us......Due to students with severe peanut allergies, we request that snacks and lunches stay PEANUT FREE! 

We would appreciate your support in avoiding sending foods that contain peanuts or any other form of tree nuts, such as sandwich crackers filled with peanut butter, granola bars, and trail mix.

Some healthy & nutritional alternatives include: ham, roast beef, tuna, egg salad, cream cheese and jelly sandwiches, hard-boiled eggs, fruit salad, yogurt & fruit, fruit rollups, apples with caramel, hummus, celery & carrot sticks, animal crackers, popcorn, pudding or Jell-o, and Rice Krispie Treats. Thank you for your cooperation!
