5k 2014

Sign up now for the PTA 5K, 1 mile Fun Run and COLOR RUN!! Join us on October 20th at Coldstream Park! VPE needs to keep up the great tradition of having the most registered runners! Right now we're 15 runners from the lead - we won $100 in June for having the most - let's step it up!! Your registration fee comes back to our PTA for our Healthy Lifestyles programming and it's an awesome day to have fun with your family. It's more than just the run - there's games, snacks, music, and more! Go to for free training opportunities.



The first meeting of the VPE Dad's Club will be at Open House, September 25th @ 6pm in the Library.  We'll review our plans for the year, give great ideas on how get involved in your particular child's classroom and curriculum as well as discuss planning for Dad's Club events for this school year.  Any questions, contact Cary Harris at

September Spirit Project-Blood Drive

There were 1,200 fewer blood donations in July and August this year compared to last July and August which has caused the community’s blood supply to drop dramatically. We’re hoping that this blood drive will help bring the supply back to a healthy level.

VPE Blood Drive

Mon, Sept 15th


On the Stage

VPE will earn $50 in equipment & supplies for every 20 pints collected at this blood drive! Each homeroom will earn 2 extra minutes of recess per donor they recruited!

Those 18 and older who register to donate July through September will automatically be entered to win a 2014 Toyota Corolla! Kentucky Blood Center is able to offer this great prize with help from Toyota on Nicholasville.  Watch this video to learn more:
