Nominate that Special VSD Staff Member in Your Life

Dear Vail Parents and Community Members,

We are proud to announce that Vail Pride Day is quickly approaching! It will be held on February 20th, 2016 at the Pima County Fairgrounds!

One of the many exciting events that happen around that time is our Staff Appreciation Awards and Luncheon. On the Friday before Vail Pride Day, the entire VSD staff comes together at the fairgrounds. One facet of that event is our Teacher of the Year and Support Staff of the Year awards that are given out to each site.

If you have that special teacher, parapro, bus driver, or any other staff member on campus that has truly impacted your lives, please take the time to nominate them 🙂

The links are attached below.
