    2023 - 2024 Welcome Letter

    Dear VHS Families,
    Welcome to the 2023-2024 school year at Verona High School. As we begin this school year, the VHS SCA needs your support to continue and bring back our past practices and traditions.

    We would like to extend to both new and returning families a personal invitation to join the VHS SCA. Membership shows your support of this valuable organization. Our primary objective as an SCA is to provide our school with funds, programs, resources and services that will enrich and maximize the education of every student. We are also very proud to offer scholarship opportunities to graduating Seniors. During the course of the year, we hold three general SCA meetings. The meeting dates are Wednesday, October 4th, Wednesday, January 3rd and Wednesday, May 1st at 5:30 pm in the Learning Commons. This is your opportunity to share thoughts and comments, or simply sit back and listen to what is happening at VHS and in our district. Our principal, Mr. Joshua Cogdill, attends each meeting and provides us with a summary of events and educational initiatives taking place within the school. We will announce all VHS SCA meetings through e-mail and on our Facebook page, VHS SCA-Student Community Association.

    The SCA works towards a common goal. That goal simply stated is to enhance the educational experience for all students. The VHS SCA has a rich heritage of serving the needs of our students. What makes our SCA special is the active and enthusiastic engagement of parents, teachers and administrators. Remember, one of the best ways to influence our
    children is to model the behavior of participation and service to our community!
    WRITE ONE CHECK!! - VHS SCA ONE CHECK FORMClick here The attached form includes boxes for your contributions to individual fundraisers. To meet our important objectives and afford services that are not covered by our school budget, we must fundraise. The SCA utilizes these funds toward school projects, scholarships, and an end of year gift to Verona High School.
