In light of recent social media safety concerns shared in Hancock County, our SRO, Deputy Crouch, would like to review safe practices. While this incident was not reported at Van Buren Schools, Deputy Crouch did take the time to investigate the validity of the report shared earlier in the month on social media. If you or anyone you know has Snapchat, please be cautious when accepting friends. There is someone friending teenagers. This person is offering a dollar amount gift card which is said to be valid, but is asking for pictures and information first. This person will continue to ask for additional pictures which includes nude photos. If you have received or have accepted friendship from someone like this, please block immediately. Parents, please take this opportunity and have a discussion with your children about internet and social media safety. #VB1Team

The Real-World Reading class will be holding a presentation night January 7 to share their first semester projects. At the beginning of the year, students were tasked with identifying a problem, finding a solution for that problem, and sharing their results. Presentation night will give students the experience of speaking in front of an audience and hopefully allow them to share how they have impacted the world. Attendees are welcome to stay for all of the presentations or come and go as necessary. If you have questions about attending, please contact Brian Bratt at bbratt@vbschools.net. #VBexperience

It's that time of year for the Ugly Christmas Sweater Contest! Staff members have submitted their ugliest sweaters in hopes of raising the most money to help support Flag City Honor Flight. When you come to an event at Van Buren Schools, please be sure to check out the photo display in either the high school or elementary school cafeteria. Choose your favorite ugly sweater and donate in the matching slot of the donation box. We encourage everyone to stuff the ballot box and help us reach our goal of raising the $400.00 to cover the cost of one volunteer. It would be fantastic to raise the additional $1000.00 to sponsor a veteran. Voting is open from December 12th-December 20th. May the ugliest sweater win! #VB1Team
