Welcome to the Vartan Gregorian website! We are so excited to be able to share our news, info, events, photos and happenings with the community. Vartan Gregorian is a vibrant learning community servicing about 400 students in grades K-5. Like all schools in Providence our student body is made up of 80% of students from the neighborhood and 20% of our students are from other neighborhoods in Providence. Together we form a diverse, learning community where students are challenged and supported to grow academically and socially. Please check back often to see our updated news and feel free to reach out to us via our email. Thanks for partnering with us.
Dear Vartan Families – It is always a busy year at VG when we look back and wrap up. I am proud of our students and our staff who have worked diligently to meet the standards for their grade level as well as working on being smart foxes. We have compiled many good deeds, participated in afterschool clubs acting and creating, worked on new chrome books, and made it through the new state testing RICAS, and a new on line science test for grade 5. We have had a science conference, continued working with Engage Math, worked on Zearn, Lexia and added iReady to our list of resources. For next year we have gotten 82 additional chrome books and 4 smart boards from the district. We welcomed Mr. Deep Positivity, had a great reading week, a fun bouncy field day and other events.
Once again a big thank you to our PTO for another great year of programming and support. A special thank you to PTO for taking care of the yearbook this year providing a copy for all students. We had field trips to plays, Slater Mill, Save the Bay and in house visits as well. Teachers received a stipend to help with classroom supplies. We look forward to see what next year brings. Thanks for the hard work. It’s always a pleasure working together to benefit our VG community!
To our graduating grade 5 students we wish you well and know you will keep your Smart Fox groove going and to our incoming kinders, welcome aboard we are always happy to have new Smart Foxes on board.
After Thursday, June 29th, our lost and found will be turned over to add to our Winter Wardrobe closet or be donated. Please be sure to have your child check for any missing items before that time. You are welcome to come by the week of the 25th and check it for yourself.
The school office is not open during the summer. I will be in and out during the month of August as we gear up for the new school year and on vacation for July. I will not have access to my email when I am on vacation in July. The office officially reopens the last week in August.
Your child’s report card will be available on Skyward as of the last day of school June 22nd. Teachers will also send home a note to indicate your child’s class placement for next year.
Summer learning loss is always something to think about. While we don’t endorse specific workbooks or assignments, we do hope that you will encourage your child to read and perhaps keep a journal or scrapbook for the summer. The School District and Library System will be participating in the Passport Program again. We will be collecting them in the fall and recognizing those students who participated. Last year we were recognized for the highest number of returned passports. In addition to reading incentives at the library, there are free places to bring your children that will have some activates to do. I encourage you to make that a part of your summer fun. The material will be coming home shortly.
If you are not returning to VG next year and are not in grade 5, please let the office know so we can update our roster and make sure to forward your child’s records to the appropriate school district.
Have a safe, wonderful, and sun-filled summer!
