Welcome to the Van Voorhis website!

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 and bus information on the right side of this page.

United against bullying

October was National Bullying Prevention Month. Van Voorhis ES students know to be a buddy, not a bully. On National Unity Day, the color to wear to stand against bullying was orange. Students and staff show their support.
