Vernon 'Town Meeting' a Schoolwide Celebration
There were poms-poms, cheers, applause and a great sense of pride as students and staff at James H. Vernon Elementary School filled the gymnasium to celebrate its first Town Meeting, Oct. 6.
The event, hosted by Principal Dr. Valerie Vacchio, is a long-standing tradition at Vernon and provides an opportunity for the entire building to come together and recognize the achievements and milestones of students, staff and the school as a whole.
“These meetings focus on celebrating the heart and soul of the Vernon School: our students,” Dr. Vacchio said.
