We are so excited to announce our first ever Red Carpet Day at Virginia Park Elementary on Wednesday, December 14. Each student received their own invitation today to our gala event. We invite all students to dress in their best attire and walk our Red Carpet. Please note that students were informed that there is no need to purchase new clothing for this event. Something they currently have in their closet is totally fine. Students will also be served a turkey dinner during this event thanks to the generous donations of individuals and businesses and our volunteers who are working behind the scenes to arrange meal preparation.
