VEPTSA supports the Viewlands community in many ways:

Lunchroom/Recess Supervision Staff. SPS does not provide funding for critical support positions during lunch/recess time at any schools. The Viewlands staff and administration has asked for our support to fund these roles to help keep this crucial time nourishing and safe for students, while allowing teachers some time to plan lessons, send an email, or catch a needed and well-deserved break. Fundraising goal: $8000 for year-long support.

Arts Enrichment. Viewlands does not currently receive sufficient funding from the state for an all school music teacher. Until we do, we rely on generous donations to reach every child at Viewlands through artist-in-residency programs. Last year, we partnered with Arts Impact for this purpose, and hope to fund more weeks of arts programs this year. Fundraising goal: $8000, for up to one week-long enrichment program for all students.

Teacher Grants. We provide teacher “grants” to help teachers keep critical supplies like notebooks, pencils, and sometimes snacks on hand for students, without spending their personal funds. Help us help the teachers! Fundraising goal: $1500, with $100 for each teacher.

Grade Level Enrichment. We also provide grade band grants to teachers in the same grade level. Teachers work together in finding activities which would benefit their whole grade level. Examples of these activities include visiting the theater, art museum or attending a music program. Teachers are also welcome to use these funds for grade level professional development. Fundraising goal: $2000, with $285 for each grade.

Please give what you can to support our students, our school, and our community! Any and all amounts to support our school are appreciated, as are your contributions of time and moral support.
