VCMS PARENT-LED COMMITTEES 
 
HOSPITALITY COMMITTEE: The Hospitality Committee supports many of the events that take place at our school, including Welcome Picnic, Back To School Night, Teacher Appreciation, etc. Hospitality also ensures support for families during challenging times. Volunteer work includes chairing sub-committees and creating a feeling of welcome for both our community and those who visit VCMS. CHAIR: Kathryn Peyton 
 
COMMUNICATIONS COMMITTEE: The communications committee ensures that current VCMS families are kept up to date on the goings on at the school, and are made aware of ways they can be involved. This committee is responsible for maintaining the school's Facebook and Instagram pages, as well as communicating via phone and email when major events are happening at the school. CHAIR: Kim Birbrower/ Brandee Hemmer
 
 
PARENT EDUCATION COMMITTEE: Parent Ed is a small committee that works to bring speakers to VCMS to talk on various parent education/child development topics that reflect and support the values and philosophy of the school. CHAIR: OPEN 
 
SAFETY COMMITTEE: This committee helps ensure student safety during drop off and pick up by directing traffic in a safe manner and ensuring that our drop off/ pick up protocols are followed. The committee also inventories and coordinates the ordering/ re-ordering of safety supplies for the classrooms. CHAIR: Sharon Lazarow
 
BEAUTIFICATION COMMITTEE: This committee is in charge of making our school look great. Whether it's helping clean up the school, making sure our plants get watered, or hanging new banners, there is always something to do. Let's make sure the outside of our school looks as great as the learning going on inside the school! CHAIR: Shirley Brookshire
 
OUTREACH COMMITTEE: The Outreach Committee’s main goal is to create a highly diverse student population at Valley Charter Middle School. Volunteering involves reaching out to new communities and building partnerships, assisting with school tours, orientation meetings and various outreach events. Second Language speakers and those with ties to various ethnic communities are much needed, as well as parents who have great social and communication skills. CHAIR: Livi Perez     
 
FUNDRAISING COMMITTEE This committee helps chair our annual giving campaign as well as other exciting fundraising events including Bingo Night, VipeOut, and Laser Tag. Our school can only maintain its small class size, have T.A.'s in every core class, and offer exciting electives and enrichment classes thanks to the generosity of those who donate to the school. Please join us in helping make our fundraising efforts a success  CHAIR: Pamela Tannenbaum
