Let us introduce you to our Husky Helper Team:

Husky Helpers is an initiative created to come alongside VMS students and families during the Stay Safe At Home Order.  It is important to all of us at VMS that you are well-cared for and that our online learning mirrors the depth of learning in the classroom.  Even though we are physically apart, our prayer is that we are connected at heart.
