News and Announcements


Welcome to the Van Voorhis website!

We will welcome K-5th students back on Aug. 3. Students can see classrooms and meet teachers at the Sneak-a-Peek scheduled on July 31, but teachers will provide most information to parents at their Open House (either August 10 or 11, depending on schedule). There is no supply list at Van Voorhis as our PTO provides all school supplies. A clear or mesh backpack does need to be purchased though. Please review our 2015-16 Student Handbook. A copy will be provided to all students. NOTE: There is a link to the school calendar on the right side of this page.

Please call us at 502-624-5854 if you have any questions or concerns.  Additional contact information >>

Van Voorhis had a STEMtastic week

The week of April 20th was STEM week at Van Voorhis ES. The opening of the new greenhouse was just one of many activities that took place to help students consider a career in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering & Math). Eco skits, a water filter competition, a visit from Mr. Science and Career Day rounded out the week.


Check out the fun and frolic of our Derby-themed field day!!

Van Voorhis students can CODE!
