  • Spanish class attends presentation at Margarita's
       On April 2, students of Spanish class "Ochiete" (combined 7th & 8th grade) along with Spanish Students of the Month from 4th & 5th grade attended the Education Outreach program at Margarita's restaurant in Augusta.  The estudiantes saw a DVD presentation about Mexican crafts, music, and  foods, toured the restaurant's extensive folk art collection, watched a cooking demonstration, and then enjoyed a Mexican  luncheon.  They tasted guacamole and salsa fresca, ate enchiladas, arroz y frijoles, and ended their meal with fresh churros dipped in warm chocolate sauce.  All agreed it was a "fiesta perfecta!"

  • VCS 7th graders trek to the Boston Museum of Science
    An early morning train trip and a day filled with learning greeted the VCS 7th graders as they woke up this morning.  This year's 7th grade class took the annual trek to Boston to learn all kinds of fascinating things at the Boston Museum of Science.  The kids got a chance to explore the many exhibits at the museum as well as attend a show in the Omni Theater.  (the train ride was pretty cool too!)

  • JMG Students head to the Capitol
    On March 10th, VCS JMG (Jobs for Maine Graduates) students headed to Augusta to learn more about state government and to serve as legislative pages for the day. The kids had the opportunity to meet and visit with Governor Lepage in his chambers as well as meet with Representative Lori Fowle and Senators Roger Katz and Scott Cyrway.  They also met with the JMG President, Craig Larrabee.  The students did a great job of representing the Vassalboro Community School, and went away with some great memories.

  • BIKES FOR BOOKS


    ANd9GcSPMmitze_McE6x4tWxoJSUC6jYJOqu4fmX1dSDrEY3w8ACBcWQ


    The Local Masonic Lodge #54 of Vassalboro is sponsoring a program aimed to promote reading. Bikes for Books is a reading incentive program designed for children in grades K-8. Bikes for Books is very simple, each student is asked to read as many age appropriate books as they can in a set amount of time. For each book they read (or have read to them for K-1st grades) the student gets an entry form to fill out and parents sign. After students complete the entry form they are put into the appropriate container for their class. These containers are located in the library. The more books the students read the more entry forms they can put into the drawing. When the program ends, Members of the Lodge will have an assembly during school and draw the name of 1 boy and 1 girl from each grade. The students drawn will get a bike and helmet to take home. The program will run from March 14th to April 30th with winners announced at our school wide concert in May. CLICK HERE TO DOWNLOAD THE FLYER

    Good Luck and Happy Reading!! 
    A special thanks to Mr. Fortin and the Vassalboro Masonic Lodge.
