The goal of the VBSD Activities Program is to provide each enrolled student of secondary age an opportunity to participate in an extracurricular activity. These activities will foster skills, a sense of worth and competence, a knowledge and understanding of the pleasures of sport, while teaching the principles of fair play. Fostering good school-community relations with an effective extracurricular program is very important to the success of our children. The emphasis to help more students participate is ongoing, as more participation results in more success. Extracurricular opportunities include VB LIST OF ACTIVITIES.pdf
