Take Charge of Education
Do you have a TARGET RED CARD? Did you know that the Target Red Card gives you 5% off your purchases and gives an additional 1% to our school? It's easy to get one - Click here!
Target's "Take Charge of Education" helps us raise money for our school—for books, activities, reading programs and anything else that can use extra funding.
Here’s how it works:
Apply for a Target REDcard debit or credit card at checkout the next time you shop (a voided personal check is needed for the debit card). There is no charge to apply. You will save 5% off your bill at every purchase and 1% of all your purchases will go to the school of your choice (VES!). Schools receive a check from The Target Corporation every September. Once you sign up it’s important to designate Vineyard Elementary School. You can call 1-800-316-6142 or go online at Target.com/tcoe
Follow these easy steps:
1. Click on ﬁnd a school under the heading Already Have a REDcard?
2. Enter city, state and school name (Vineyard Elementary, Templeton, CA)
3. Click select this school and enter your REDcard information
If you already have a REDcard go to Target.com/tcoe and make sure you have selected VES as your school. You can check on our school’s donation progress by entering your REDcard number under the heading "Already Enrolled?"
Let friends and family know that they can designate Vineyard Elementary School to receive funds too! Use your REDcard whenever you shop. The more people we involve, the more the program works for our school. If you’re already participating, thank you! The number of REDcard holders who have designated this school is only 81 REDcard users, and we have over 200 families at VES, surely we can generate some much needed funding using this simple program. Don't delay, sign up today!

Free Flu Mist Clinic - Dec. 2, 2:30 - 3:45 p.m., TES/TMS MPR
Flu season is here! It is definitely not too late to get your flu vaccination because peak activity for flu occurs between December and February. The school district in conjunction with the San Luis Obispo County Health Department is offering a FREE flu mist clinic next month. Flu is a contagious respiratory illness caused by influenza viruses that infect the nose, throat and lungs. The best way to prevent the flu is by getting a flu vaccine each year. Flu is unpredictable and the severity can vary widely from one season to the next. Flu in children, older people, pregnant women and those with certain health conditions such as asthma, diabetes or heart disease can be very serious.
Flu Mist can be given to those aged 2 to 49 who are not currently ill, and do not have asthma, diabetes, seizures or other chronic health conditions. A parent must be present for your child to receive this vaccine. Supply is limited so it will be given on a first come, first served basis. There will be a limited number of shots also available for those not eligible to receive flu mist. This offer is available to siblings age 2 or over, parents and staff. In order to get an approximate count of vaccine needed, please leave a voice mail at 434-5824 with the site your student attends and how many people will be receiving the vaccine. If you have any questions, please call the nurse at TES (434-5824) or the nurse at TMS (434-3752).
Date and Location: Tuesday, December 2, 2014 2:30 – 3:45 p.m.

Retro Bill at VES
VES values its many parent volunteers. Whether at home or in the classroom, we appreciate our partnership with families. When helping at school, please check into the office before going to your child's classroom. It's important for staff to know where volunteers are at all times when on site. Thank you for your help!
To eliminate long lunch lines, please have your child place their money in an envelope with their student number. This should be turned into the lunch envelope at the beginning of the school day, or to the drop box outside the cafeteria entrance.
