Welcome to the Vineyard Ranch Elementary PTA Website!
Tuesday, October 6
Pizza available for purchase at 6 pm
General Meeting at 6:30 pm
Join us for dinner and our first general PTA meeting of the year and learn about some of our PTA programs and volunteer opportunities. It doesn't matter if you have just a little bit of time or could volunteer once a week. We have an opportunity for you. We even have ways you can help from home. Come on down to the Ranch and learn how you can be involved!
Sister School Tennis Shoe Drive
Our first drive to benefit our Sister School, Oak Grove, is here! We are collecting pairs of NEW tennis shoes for their students. There are 2 ways to help!
1. Click here to sign up to donate in order to control sizes and quantities. Then drop off pairs of NEW tennis shoes to the collection box in the atrium from October 5-16.
2. Donate cash or a check payable to "Vineyard Ranch PTA" and we will purchase shoes on your behalf.
Please join in this wonderful cause to help our Sister School!
We need one more PTA Committee Chair!
Come join the fun! We still need a super-duper volunteer to be a committee chair for our workrooms for grades 3-5! Committee chairs must attend board meetings that are typically held on the second Tuesday of the month at 9:30 AM, at school. General PTA meetings (5 per school year) are usually held on the first Tuesday of the month at 6:30 PM, in the cafeteria. Committee chairs are required to be dues-paid members of the Vineyard Ranch PTA. If you are interested in or have questions about this position, please contact Sara Patterson at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Descriptions for board positions can be found on our VRE PTA Board Contacts page.

Recycle with us at the Ranch.
Did you know that old/broken cell phones, iPods, MP3 players, ink cartridges are recyclable? How about empty glue sticks and Capri juice pouches? YES, all recyclable!
LEARN HOW HERE
PTA has partnered with TerraCycle to start a number of Recycling Programs at our school.
From now on, instead of tossing items into the trash, bring them to school to earn Terracycle Points for our school. TerraCycle points are redeemable for up-cycled products, charitable gifts or payment to our school. Think of it as Win-Win situation.
The items collected will be sent to TerraCycle, an international upcycling and recycling company that collects difficult-to-recycle packaging and products and re-purposes the material into affordable, innovative products, according to terracycle.com. Our program helps earn money for our school while keeping unnecessary amounts of trash out of our landfills.
