Welcome to the Verona High School SCA!

  • The SCA - SCHOOL COMMUNITY ASSOCIATION
    A Partnership of home and school that enriches your child's educational experience.

     
     
    Dear VHS Families,
     
    Welcome to the 2017-18 school year at Verona High School. We hope that this school year at VHS will be both an exciting and rewarding experience for you and your child. We would also like to offer a special welcome to the incoming Freshmen and their families of the Class of 2021.
     
    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 a SCA is to provide our school with funds, programs, resources and services that will enrich and maximize the education of every student. During the course of the year, we hold three general SCA meetings. These meetings provide an open forum for discussion about the issues faced in high school. It is your opportunity to share thoughts and comments, or simply sit back and listen to what is happening at VHS and in our district. We encourage your attendance at SCA meetings. Our principal, Mr. Joshua Cogdill, attends each meeting and provides us with a summary of events and educational initiatives taking place within the school. Specific meetings will often feature a topic and/or guest speaker of particular interest to parents.
     
    The SCA works towards a common goal. That goal simply stated is enhancing 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 that one of the best ways to influence our children is to model the behavior of participation and service to the community!  
     
     
    WRITE ONE CHECK!
    There is a VHS One Check Form which includes boxes for your contributions to individual fundraisers (please print this off of our site directly - there is a special link in the navigation bar). To meet 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. Let's not forget that you can also win wonderful prizes with our Back to School Night Class Baskets and Scholarship 50/50 Raffle. If you are having trouble with the form, please email Barbara Yeates, bpyeates@verizon.net
     
     
    MEMBERSHIP DUES:
    In addition to contributing to the individual fundraisers, your family can join the SCA for $15 per household. This is a once per year solicitation.
