Our Mission

The mission of the Vance Parent Team is to support and advocate for the success of our students through developing community partnerships, ensuring educational excellence, and promoting responsible lifestyles. We are a 501c3 non-profit organization.

Here are some of the ways we support Vance...

  • Offer 3 sessions of low-cost After School Enrichment (ASE) classes in the Fall, Winter, and Spring
  • Sponsor our beautiful Vance Peace Garden
  • Partner with community organizations such as FEAST for our Garden Coordinator teaching position and cooking/gardening classes, Roots and Wings for their afterschool and Innovation Hour programming, and Roots Foundation for transforming our campus into an edible schoolyard that promotes outdoor learning
  • FUNdraise with our Rocket Run 5k, Craft Explosion, Bids For Vance Spring Auction, and Vance CommUNITY Campaign
  • Give yearly stipends to our teachers and specialists, over $7k for 2016, for supplies, materials, learning experiences, field trips
  • Give grants for 5th Grade Trip Scholarships, Let Me Run
  • Buy new equipment and technology for our school
  • Help host and fund community events like our Welcome Back Kickball Cookout, Fall Garden Party, Hispanic Heritage Night, Holiday Celebration, Black History Night, STEAM Week and STEAM Expo Night, and Field Day
  • Fund Teacher and Staff Appreciation throughout the year

Every parent or guardian of a Vance kid is a member of the Vance Parent Team with no dues required, and we can all work together to provide quality education for our children. Vance welcomes and encourages everyone to volunteer and participate however and whenever they can: at Parent Team meetings, during the school day, after school, and with our fundraising and events. This is a great way to build community, make friends, and show your child that you value education and care about their school. Contact us to get started!

Our Meetings are the 3rd Friday of each month at 8:15am in the Vance Planetorium. Come after drop-off and share coffee and community. Childcare for ages 4 and under provided. Babies in arms always welcome. We try to limit the meeting time to one hour, and attendees are welcome to stay for as long as their work schedules allow.
