This is Vassar Elementary calling to let you know that your child’s teacher may be stopping by your home for a short visit to introduce themselves and welcome your child to the upcoming school year.  In addition, they will have some beginning of the year information for you to read before school starts.  We won’t be visiting all students’ homes but we wanted to let you know someone may be stopping by.  We are looking forward to a great school year at Vassar.

Aurora Public Schools cordially invites you and your family to our
