Each year, when you donate to Vaughan PTA you help us provide educational programs and fun family events that benefit the students of Vaughan Elementary!
Destination Imagination is a project-based learning program that blends STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) education with arts. Throughout the program, students use critical & creative thinking, team building, problem solving, risk taking, and project management skills to build their self-confidence. To learn more about how you and your child can get involved, please attend the Parent Info meeting on Monday, September 10.
At the Vaughan Spelling Bee, students compete against classmates by spelling words. This program encourages public speaking, increases vocabularies, and improves students’ spelling. The winner of the fifth-sixth grade Spelling Bee will advance to the local spelling bee. Check out spellingbee.com for more information.
